Shorts in Winter

Pin It
Hope you're having a great Monday. I will be spending my week finishing up training courses that are required for work. It's only day one and my brain is already fried. Please keep your fingers crossed that I will pass all 5 exams by the end of this week.

Last week, we were blessed with a couple of mild days. I immediately pulled out a pair of shorts that I thrifted a while back and was dying to wear. I spotted this beautiful pair of tweed shorts 2 months ago and had to bring them home with me. I love thrifting and finding unique items. These shorts were brand-new from Express. Sadly, the size 0 was too big on me. I took them to my tailor and had the waist taken in. They now fit me perfectly. These shorts are made of thick and beautiful tweed material.

Do you remember this cable sweater that I ordered from Target last week? I added it to my cart as a filler item for free shipping. However, I ended up loving it so much. It fits me perfectly. I love the cropped length and the softness of this sweater.

What I am wearing:
Shorts: Express (thrifted - waist taken in) - size 0 (buy similar)
Sweater: Target pullover cable sweater - size XS
Boots: Steve Madden (buy similar)
Necklace: Gold tassel necklace c/o Kate & Soo

I hope you enjoy this outfit. Our unseasonably warm weather will continue through tomorrow. I probably won't be posting much this week. Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for stopping by!

The cable sweater looks so cozy! I was shocked to see you in shorts for this time of year but yay for nice weather:)


Gorgeous!! That is awesome that your filler item worked out! And those boots look so cute with those shorts!

Good luck on your exam! :)


Great thrifting find, Sydney! At the speed you're going with DIY's, pretty soon you'll be taking in the waist on all of these yourself.

I am recently getting into thrifting...cute shorts! I need to find a tailor in my area that I can trust. That Target sweater is adorable too! Good luck on those exams, Sydney!


Gorgeous shorts - I need to start thrifting more myself, you can find such terrific items for even more terrific prices.


i can't believe that you're able to wear shorts in the winter (& w/o tights!).
And ditto what jean said about the DIY's!


I just started thrifting and really enjoying it! It has been insanely nice over our side lately too, so weird since it's January!

I can't believe you can wear those shorts on their own right now, that's awesome!...and they will look so great with tights too....(did I mention I love those boots)!! Lol


The weather has been crazy in my neck of the woods too. Sunshine and warm one day and snow the next! I'm glad to see you were able to enjoy the mild weather, Sydney! Cable and tweed is such a pretty combination.
