The Long And Short Of It

Shorts are a surprisingly versatile staple that work double duty for day, night, summer, and fall alike. Don't believe me? Look to these leading ladies for a little transitional wardrobe inspiration.
March Style Icon Gwyneth Paltrow rocks a high-waisted pair with a simple white button-down, mixed metal accessories, and black pointed toe pumps. 
Blake Lively, who made an appearance in my Style Icon series in February, works the same palette in a down-to-there white blazer...
...and updates the formula with a sequined blazer and oxford pumps for an evening appearance. 
A summer tan pairs well with a pale blue blazer, khaki shorts, and gorgeous leather heels — and suits April Style Icon Cameron Diaz's casually chic style to a T.
A wool blazer and tweed shorts work well paired with neutral tights for fall.
Positively obsessed with the look on the left! Pink shorts and a metallic jacket make for effortless summer-into-fall chic.

P.S. I'll be over at Splendid Willow today sharing a summer postcard and I hope you'll meet me there!

I LOVE shorts. Most especially because I am quite petite, and they make my legs look longer... my favorite pair right now is deep grey linen, with great pleats and details. You've given me some lovely ideas, though and now I want a few more pairs :)
