It was Sunday morning and I was standing in my closet wondering what to wear. I was taking my mom and sister to see a film, “Bernie”, downtown and absolutely nothing in my closet was right.
Then I spied the burgundy, lace shorts I bought at Kohl’s last fall and it all came together. This is a vest I bought at Forever 21 a couple of months ago and my trusty, neutral Calvin Klein open-toed slingbacks, bought on sale four years ago, which make my legs look a mile long.
I hesitated buying these shorts because I couldn’t think of where/how I’d wear them. But almost any time jeans and a T-shirt are an option, so are these shorts and, in this Texas heat, they’re turning out to be a very wise purchase indeed. Well worth the sartorial risk.
PS: Go see “Bernie”! It’s based on a murder that happened in Carthage, Texas in the mid-90s and features a very restrained and nuanced performance from Jack Black. (No, really!) It also stars Matthew McConaughey and a host of townspeople from Carthage who will make you guffaw – out loud! – in the theater.
