The Ageless Style Link-Up – The first Tuesday of every month ten over 40 bloggers present a different style theme and show a myriad of ways to wear it, all the while proving you can still be fashionable and on trend over 40 and beyond.
Happy Independence Day to all of you out there in the US! It’s a day of cookouts, family fun, fireworks and celebrating our country. Since it is July, it is also hot out there and a perfect time to wear shorts, which is why chose them for this month’s Ageless Style theme. For some reason people think once you turn forty it is time to start packing up the shorts and hiding your legs. Down here in the south it is just too darn hot and humid to stay covered up in the summer, especially if you are going to be spending any amount of time outside.
It should be of no surprise I am drawn to slightly dressier shorts. I love patterned options, as well as bright colors (a couple of my favorite short looks here and here). Because I am petite I always choose shorter shorts, but lately I have been liking some of the bermuda shorts out there. These white and black striped shorts are so cute and make a great statement. Because they are black and white the color options to wear with them are literally endless.
