Patterned shorts for a pear shaped lady

Today is the last warm day for a while according to the forecast, so I decided to pull a pair of shorts out of the drawer.  I rarely wear shorts because as I’ve mentioned before it is incredibly hard to find ones that fit my body.  The ones I wanted to wear today were from Ann Taylor Loft, but not the curvy fit, just regular fit.  I had to do what I’ve described as “creative mending” to the waistband to get them to come in enough so they aren’t gaping a ton.  As long as I wear a long enough top it’s okay because the poorly done stitching doesn’t show through.

I’ve seen a lot of looks in magazines where the models will be wearing a blazer with shorts that I wanted to try to replicate.  While it looks good, it never struck me as practical, because if it is cool enough to wear a blazer wouldn’t you be too cold to wear shorts?  (Especially the tiny ones they show on models.)  Nevertheless, I thought it was a cute look, so when I’m in a store with air conditioning I’ll throw on the blazer, but for most of the day I’ll just be wearing the white tee by itself.
