Short Story

I am just going to go ahead and say it, shorts are not everyday attire!  Although I like to rock a good short, I stand behind the opinion that there is a time and a place.  For example a warm weather vacation, or a summertime sporting event and/or barbecue.  Those are all appropriate times and places for the run of the mill short.  But for everyday lifestyle,  I live by a few short rules.  A cute jean short that is styled and dressed up with great shoes and a modest top, check.  A tailored suit short paired with the coordinating blazer, double check.  A short that is the bottom half of a matching set in a chic print or classic pattern, triple check!  
Speaking of matching sets, I am a big fan!  I honestly love this trend.  A blouse that has a pant, skirt, or short that goes with it is simply genius.  The pair can be worn together or coordinated into separate looks.  It is a mix and match dream!  Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see a roundup of some super chic matching short sets.
