Dressed up Shorts: Black and Olive

February 25, 2013

I don’t know what phenomenon this falls under but I tend to cherish more things that I buy on a bargain. My Celine luggage tote I got on full price doesn’t get the same VIP treatment as my Fendi Silvana which I got at Bergdoff Goodman for 65% off, and it was the last one left! I am sure the same is going to go for these new in Lanvin ankle boots I got from the Outnet (to my instagram lovelies; this was what was in the box). They were the last pair left and they also happened to be in my size, talk about destiny. I know they are so last season to some people but they are such a classic pair so to me they are so in season!

It’s getting a little warmer so this would be a perfect time to get those shorts out and wear them over tights with ankle boots or booties. I usually don’t do short shorts at all even in summer but with tights underneath, I can roll with the flow. I also want to try this with cuffed denim shorts before summer comes. Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are geared up for the work week ahead.

      They are very comfy 🙂 Comfort is always my top priority with shoes. These boots have a hidden 1 inch platform, so they really only feel like 3.5 inches.

    You look amazingly chic. Everything just flows together so perfectly.

    Gorgeous! I really like how high and narrow the ankle is on these boots. Also, I don’t subscribe to this or that season, in or out, so I’m really glad to see that you just bought what you love regardless of its date of origination 🙂

    Great boots! The high heel makes the olive and black look more elegant than military.
