How to wear heels with shorts

July 16, 2015

If you follow me on instagram or Facebook then you know we saw Dave Matthews Band Tuesday night and my son who was front and center of the concert was lucky enough to meet Dave.  You can see the pic on my Facebook page!    It was a fabulous concert and he played for almost 4 hours.  It was a late night out for a "school night" and today I am on my way to California.  I will be traveling most of the afternoon and arriving in time for a sunset beach stroll!  I am looking forward to sunshine, and maybe a little shopping!  Be sure to follow me on instagram to see my trip as it happens! I am looking forward to some downtime for sure.  

Distressed and ripped denim is on trend; or "fleek" as some would say.  I tried to get into this trend.... but something with the idea of paying good money for ripped clothes at a premium price no less, was just not setting well with me.  I opted for no holes.  Hey, if they are going to show wear I want it to be authentic and most certainly have a story attached to any holes or tears!! I found the perfect pair at Gap.  These white denim shorts are a great length and with a cute rolled cuff.  With a slightly higher waist, but that works in my favor!  When pairing your shorts with a heel be sure to match the height of your heel with the length of your shorts.  The longer the short.... the lower the heel.  The shorter the short.... the higher the heel!  Any heel over 4 inches with a pair of shorts is too much in my opinion.  I don't care how short your shorts are and how good your legs look.  Put a dress on instead.  These shorts have a 5" inseam so I paired a 2.5 inch heel with them.  To keep my outfit casual I wore a chambray top; add a pop of leopard and turquoise jewels for the finishing touches.  Would you wear heels with your shorts?
