Almost Pretty

We make some of our toughest decisions of the day before 8am. Or maybe a little after, depending on how cooperative your closet is being. There's boots, there's tights, there's round-necks and V-necks, and there's to skirt or to pant and now, whether or not to short. Speaking of shorts, here's a little outfit you can use to help pacify your closet:

This pairing happened by accident; the shorts were just being tested for fit (Forever 21 runs small). Honestly, I remember it looking cuter in the dressing room. But I like the mix of antique with something tailored and the "kind of ugly" factor. I'm a big proponent of ugly as the new pretty. That antique top will also look great with a skirt, maybe cream? Those shorts, too, can be worn with sweaters, shirts, and are long enough to be fine at work if you're in a stylish shorts-wearing kind of office. Please pair the above with opaques and an ankle lace-up boot.

Both pieces are Forever 21, so this won't cost much. The shorts are $19.80 and the top is $29.80.
