OOTD - Shorts and Tights, Summer to Fall

Happy Thursday, Noobs! Another transitional outfit today, bridging a Summer wardrobe into Fall.  As I had mentioned in a previous post, one of my favourite ways to bring my Summer clothes into Fall is with black tights and for this outfit I layered them under a pair of black shorts.  I started getting into shorts and tights last Spring and, after at first wondering if I was too "old" for the look, am now 100% a fan.  Adding a lightweight striped sweater and a maroon scarf kept me warm, and black booties helped to elongate my legs -bonus!  Read on for additional photos and outfit details.

Shorts - Club Monaco (similar), Sweater  - Forever 21 (similar), Scarf - Asos
Booties - Target (similar), Bag - Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran

I have a small confession - as sad as I was to see the end of Summer, I'm secretly glad about Fall's arrival.  There's something about wearing cozy knits and layering different materials that just soothes my soul.  As long as we can keep things at a reasonable temperature - without any snow - then I'll be a happy camper.

A rare shot without sunglasses.  Random fact - my eyes are ridiculously sensitive to the light, and I end up squinting even on a cloudy day.  I've heard that this is common among people with very light coloured eyes.  Does anyone else have the same problem?

How are you transitioning your wardrobe from Summer to Fall?

  4. You totally rock the tights under shorts look. :) Sometimes I'm not sure about it, but I really love this, especially with the stripes and scarf. If only I had a pair of black shorts to try this!

    1. Thanks Kimi! I was originally debating whether or not to try this outfit out with jean shorts, so maybe give those a try instead of the black! Let me know how it goes :)

  5. Such an adorable look! I'm waiting for the weather to get a little bit colder here to wear my shorts and tights

  6. Love it! I am obsessed with shorts and tights. I bought a pair of leg warmers too so I can hopefully continue wearing them in the winter. We'll have to see how cold it gets though.

  7. I'm totally a fan of shorts with tights, especially pleather shorts!
