Styling Bermuda Shorts

Shorts and summer go hand in hand.  With the sun blessing us with a few rays, it only right we dedicate some time to shorts.

I would never pick shorts first on any given day…but if i had to…. Bermuda shorts would make the cut.  I know,  I Know!  Knee length anything are so ancient, but this classic cut provides a very chic way to hide knock knees, cellulite and what ever else you might want to keep under wraps. 

Unlike other shorts, I would feel very comfortable wearing these to the office or other corporate events. Believe it or not theses shorts are super versatile and easy to dress up or down.

I styled mine by pairing my Bermuda short with a tucked in basic cami ( this gives the illusion that it’s a one piece) and layered a lace blouse on top.  For the added touch of Chic-ness I dug out an old pair of heeled shoes, my Angolmania’s -perfect !

Soo…. have I convinced you that Bermuda shorts are a must try this summer ?

Upgrade your 9-5

Upgrading your 9-5 is not easy but it CAN be done. Interestingly, I did just that by making 2 simple changes…… to my outfit. I am talking about how I updated my 9-5 work look;););)
I am the worst for not making an effort when going to work.
But the following saying really got me thinking:

“Dress the way you want to be addressed”

Getting the balance between looking chic for work yet not over the top is a daily battle. But I think I have nailed the 2 staple peices to update any work outfit.
As we say sayonara to summer and hello fall; jackets, coats, trench coats and classic heels are the only way forward. Make sure you do not get left behind.
