OOTD - Shorts and Tights for the Grown Up


I know that my previous post regarding the shorts and tights trend had left me to the conclusion that it wasn't for me - but I am not one to throw in the towel easily (plus I did not want to give up on such an easy winter to spring transitional outfit!)  I think what was throwing me off with the previous outfit is that the look was a little 'young' for me - as someone approaching 30 at lightning speed, I think my days of booty showing short-shorts are far behind me.  This time I chose a longer, more conservative short and paired them with an opaque tight and black bootie to create a longer leg. My one focal point , the leopard scarf, adds just enough personality without being overdone.  Shorts and tights will certainly be in the outfit rotation from now on, but done more conservatively.  Read on for additional photos and outfit details.





Finding a large leopard scarf was a bit of an obsession for me, back in fall of 2013.  I finally found the perfect one at Zara and regrettably it has since been sold out.   This is a fairly similar one on Etsy, but check around your local Forever 21 - they seem to have good ones on rotation from time to time.

**TIP - this is a large scarf that I tied at the ends together, to turn it into an infinity scarf.

What do you think about this new shorts and tights combo?  More wearable for the gown up lady?

Happy Friday!
