Summer is finally here and the mercury is on the rise as well as hemlines.
When it's hot and humid the way it gets in NYC I don't want to wear anything pass my knees: neither skirts nor pants.
I love a comfy and relaxed fit on a pair of shorts especially if I'm dressing for work.
If worn properly like I've done today with a light weight blazer, go ahead and show those legs. But remember to treat them like you would when wearing a short skirt: loose but fitted, silk or cotton and always pair them with flat shoes or sandals and don't forget the classic extras: A tote bag or daytime clutch, simple jewelry and don't leave your house without a pair of sunnies, you will need them.

Love Chacha,
