Fall Dressing In Shorts X 2

We have a bit of a temperature drop–not a lot but just a little bit. So here I am continuing to show you some fall dressing with shorts this time around. Yes, it’s October 25, and we’re still able to comfortably wear shorts. Yet, again, I embrace different colors and textures to adjust to fall dressing. Here I have two very fall like outfits, yet I am wearing shorts–in this example, cutoffs to be more precise. Here’s to our amazing Hong Kong weather and my favorite pair of clothing–my Wrangler DIY jean shorts!

I bet you were wondering…where are the shorts?! Well, whenever the hemline of my shift dress feels a little too short, I simply layer a pair of shorts underneath. It must have been a Friday when I wore this outfit because I only ever wear denim to work/school on Fridays.

I’ve been totally digging the one side earring lately–especially with my asymmetrical bob. In this instance, I wore both of my silver Ganesh earrings on my left ear. I loved how they jangled against one another all day long. Also, this embellished jacket–one of my first DIY jean jackets–is one of my faves. I love wearing this jacket, and yes our temperature, especially indoors with air conditioning, requires a jacket. A denim option is just the right piece.

Are you Gucci? That’s a saying my daughter has started asking. It’s suppose to mean, “Are you good.” In my Gucci-eque sweatshirt, yes I am good! I picked up this sweatshirt while Kevin and I were on our summer road trip along California’s coast. There happened to be a Forever 21 on Santa Barbara’s Main Street, and I was allowed a wee bit of time while Kevin roamed around. When I saw this cute bumble bee, bright floral number with the green striped hem, I instantly thought of Gucci, and I instantly knew I had to have it! Am I Gucci? Oh yes!

I had to have this bag. I had to! We were living in India, and on the weekends we would go to the J.W. Marriot and just chill by the pool. The J.W. had three pools: a kiddie pool with a fun slide for our then toddlers, a main pool that was just sublime, and a small salt water pool hidden away in the corner. By the time the kids started getting older we’d head over to the hidden salt water pool. There was a very handsome Spanish couple that would do the same. Oh, would I stare at that Spanish woman! To put it mildly, she was drop dead gorgeous! Anyway, back to the bag…. she owned it. I finally got the gumption to ask where she got it–of course the Spanish brand, Zara. Well, the moment I was at a Zara during our next trip out of India, I saw the BAG! I bought it without hesitation. I’ve had it ever since. And with a style story connected to this beautiful loden green bag, it’s unlikely we will ever part ways. It reminds me of that very stunning Spaniard!

    These shorts outfits are great! They’re also speaking a little of that “Fall transitional” language with the colors you’ve chosen. I think my favorite is the floral sweatshirt and brown suede shorts. That color comination is really great. Your socks are so darn cute too!! How fun to create shorts outfits with a fall vibe!
