Remember summertime? Lemonade, 105 degree days, sunlight until 9, and all those cute shorts. While shorts have been a summer staple since (insert old year, we couldn't find this info on Wikipedia), this year was definentely a boom year for this classic garment. High waisted, pleats, cute prints, classic cut-off, the possibilities were endless.
But then Fall comes, and 40 degree weather ruins all your fun...OR does it? Trendsetters have been hard at work to solve this little problem and recently unveiled their solution. Just add tights! Solid, sheer, patterned...whatever your fancy.
Shorts and tights can be a difficult one to maneuver, so we put Shopowner Sheila on the case. So she has cooked up some fantastic ideas for you!
