I know I haven’t posted a lot of casual-ish outfits, but that’s just because I’m in dressier clothes most of the time.  During the week, I come home from work and put on my comfies.  On Friday nights, our favorite date lately has been to grill steaks and sit around a fire on the back porch, and Saturdays are spent doing things around the house, and, weather permitting, taking a bike ride to grab a bite of supper.  On Sundays, I’m back in dress clothes.

Well, this past Friday night, we had to run to Bloomington, so we took advantage of the opportunity to eat at Scotty’s Brewhouse (highly recommend), and I was excited to actually get dressed up for a real date:)  Since I have 4 million pairs of shorts that I rarely wear, I thought it would be fun to dress up a pair with wedge heels, my fave shoe choice of late!  I like them b/c they add a few inches to my legs and are slimming; however, they make whatever you’re wearing, whether a skirt or shorts, appear shorter than they actually are…

My solution for not feeling too exposed is to wear a loose-fitting, modest top to balance out the lack of coverage on the bottom half, but the bright colors and paisley print keep it fun and fresh.

What’s your favorite way to dress up a pair of shorts?  Check out today’s gallery for several more blouse styles that would do the trick:
