There are a lot of trends out there but the one that I am most excited about these days is silk shorts. New York is a dressy place, everyone always looks so stylish and well put together, all the time. Every now and then I'll take a look around and suddenly feel extremely under dressed, usually those moments occur when I'm wearing jeans after six pm. As a result, I prefer my outfits to be transitional. If I can take it from day to night just by changing my shoes at the end of the day, it's a winner in my book. Silk shorts help make that transition a little easier, especially on days like today when you could probably actually cook an egg on the sidewalk. 

I love the pretty blue hue of this pair from J. Crew and they just so happen to be on sale! I would wear them with this pretty Joie top, I love the subtle pleating and embroidery, fun sunglasses and little pops of red. 

What's your take on the trend?

  7. Oh my word, cook-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk weather sounds atrocious, but these shorts are so adorable I can only image that they make that situation a little more bearable.
