Chic Shorts for Warm-Weather Days

Can you say upper 80s? It’s officially warm-weather season in St. Louis. Last weekend, I attended a couple events and chic shorts were my go-tos to stay cool and feel chic. Be sure to follow Economy of Style on Instagram for a few snaps from the Macy’s event I attended on Saturday. Today’s post features what I wore yesterday to a natural hair event in the city.

A light and airy button-down is worn untucked with my favorite purple shorts. Accessories like a grey bucket bag, wood tassel earrings, and a spike cuff helped pull the look together.


Shorts—J.Crew | option (multiple colors available)

Shoes—Joe’s Jeans | J.Crew option

Bag—Kate Spade Saturday | bigger option

Earrings—J.Crew wood tassel earrings (on sale in-store)

Bracelet—J.Crew contoured spike cuff (on sale)

Rings—J.Crew Stone Signet ring, J.Crew sliced ring, J.Crew orb ring

Watch—Michael Kors

Lip—Mac “Flat Out Fabulous” lipstickMac “Heroine” lip pencil
Blush—NYX powder blush in mocha


Get the look:

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s);  = id; p = ‘//’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

      Thanks, Sing! I can't believe I haven't been wearing these heels much. That changes now…
