Bermuda shorts in the fall. Totally do-able.
I have to admit I got the idea after seeing pictures of a fashion blogger in Sweden, where they have six months of winter, sporting a pair of Bermuda shorts, a thick, white turtleneck and some rock star sunnies. I’m sure she was wearing appropriate footwear but in the photo collage her shoes weren’t visible. She was working her look like a pro.
In Austin, where we have six, non-consecutive days of winter, we’ve had some cold mornings this month (my laptop says the temperature right now is 32 degrees with a forecasted high of 71). As I’ve said before, layering is the key to wearing a spring/summer piece in the fall and that’s what I’ve done here. With my Bermudas I’m wearing tights, black snake skin flats, a teal long-sleeved T-shirt, a waist-length jacket from Banana Republic and a scarf. And, of course, my version of rock star sunnies. I wouldn’t want to stand around outside in this outfit, but it’s sufficiently warm to get me from the parking lot to the office.
Have a great weekend, y’all. If you get a chance, visit Reality Chic blog to read yesterday’s post: What to Wear to Thanksgiving. And remember to thank a military vet today!
