Although I wear trendy pieces, I don’t have enough youth on my side to wear certain fashionable looks that I simple adore. Top of that list is dressy short shorts with heels and a tuxedo jacket. The Budget Babe featured actress Amanda Seyfried in this look a month ago and I’m crazy about it. I’d entertain less glitzy and more smart casual takes on the combination too, like denim short shorts with a silky blouse, blazer and wedged pumps.

I do my version of the look with longer Bermuda shorts, but  the effect isn’t as cheeky. Oh well! That’s okay too. At least I get to admire the cheeky version on lasses younger than me.

Do you yearn to wear a particular look that you would wear if you were younger? Converse sneakers with dresses, string bikinis, 5-inch heels, lower tops? I don’t mean for this topic to be directed at women who are over the age of 40. If you’re in your 20’s or 30’s feel free to comment too!
