Sophisticated Shorts

Heading out for a dressy event in the summer can sometimes be tricky! It's so easy to throw on a dress, but take an opportunity to try something different! It's probably safe to assume a lot of women will have a dress on, so take an alternative route and dress up a pair of shorts. High-waisted shorts aren't an every day item, but you can definitely dress them up and make them super sophisticated.

High-waisted shorts are great for two reasons: 1. They are unexpected and 2. They sure do make your legs look long! 
I am loving this tank top that I picked up from Ann Taylor last week (currently having a 40% off sale). I've already worn it with these shorts and then again with a pair of ripped jeans for a dressy-casual look (pictures to come soon)! 
I am off to Cape Cod for the weekend, so be sure to follow me on Instagram to follow along! Challenge yourself this weekend to try an unexpected piece that you normally would shy away from! Tag me on Instagram so I can check out your look!
