dressed up like a lady: *Gasp* Denim shorts with TIGHTS?!?!?

*Gasp* Denim shorts with TIGHTS?!?!?

You see this expression?


That's pretty much all I have to offer on the matter. I mean, I understand the taboo -- I've done my share of nose-turning at the general idea. But what can I say, the heart is fickle.

Sweater: UO
Shorts: Thrifted
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Bag: Thrifted Coach

If there's anything my local Salvation Army has plenty of, it's old Coach purses. I guess the Soccer Moms in my area just get tired of their bags rather quickly. I like imagining that this little black one diligently carried some suburban lady's mini-van keys, packs of Freedent, and Phil Collins cassette tapes for one hot year around 1992.

Oh and also: we have a winner for the BB Dakota Dusty Pink Blake Dress giveaway, which you may remember from this post. And the winner is....Katy from Style Child! Congratulations to Katy, and thanks to everybody who entered! Hopefully there will be more giveaways in the future!

  1. I love the look on your face in the first picture. :] Probably about as much as I'm enjoying the jean shorts/tights combo (my favorite!).

  2. lots of people in the uk wear shorts with tights, i'd even say they're more popular than skirts and tights! funny how there's differing fashion like that... =]
    i also adore your jumper!

  4. I did this the other day and loved it. I did dark, high waisted jean shorts with black tights and flats, and tucked my tank top in. You can't help but notice the few upturned noses, but I fell in love with it.

    Guilty as charged

  5. Cammila you look so cute!
    It's ironic...I was just watching this movie last night called "The Clique" and they made this big deal about Denim shorts with Tights.

    Nonetheless, you look so adorable in them!

  12. I wish my thrift store carried the "goods." It's always a bunch of crap.

  13. Lol... I really do love that purse, I would wear it all the time! I have an aversion to short/tights but you pull it off well!

  14. Great sweater! I've always been such a fan of shorts of tights but my friends think I'm nuts for it. Maybe it is similar to my love of socks with heels. I just think it works!

  15. Love the "Say Wha?!" expression. Actually made my day a little better. I know what you mena about being fickle with the way you feel about a trend. I really liek the cardigan as well.

  18. Your make-up is always making me gasp! Where did you learn to do so well?

  19. I hear you about the designer purses. We don't have lots of Coach, but we do have tons of Dooney and Brooke bags.

  20. Love the coach possibilities list you thought of but...perhaps it was a Mrs. Robinson kind of soccer mom and held more controversial things. Hmmm. I haven't ever tried the tight short thing, but I think you look smashing!

  21. I was against at one point too, but everyone wears them and it makes them more versatile for the winter months. Doesn't really work with surf shorts though. And as 'Charlie' says, it's pretty common here in the UK

  22. Lovely photo's. Taboo or not, you look stunning anyway!
