Another pulled together shorts look, this time with shorts unrolled (so more like pedal pushers -- they are longer on me than on the model) and the new Sorel sandals.

    So Suz! You look polished even in shorts and sandals.

    I wasn't a fan at all of those sandals in the Find, but they're really great on you. They make a mostly-classic outfit feel updated and fresh.

  • Angie replied 9 months ago


    I prefer these white shorts! A little more flattering to my eye, and lengths. FWIW, I'm pedantic about it....can't help it! 

    Your silver hair is sooooo beautiful! You are Queen Silver, and can wave to Joy and JAileen :)

    LOVE the trendy sandals. They add a nice edge. And I know red is energizing for you too. HIGH FIVE.

    Great look !  And I really like your hair this length - it looks terrific !  I have a pair of Jag pedal pushers that I'm about to cut off to bermuda length .  They are longer than yours here though. I just feel too "my mother " in them, although some better styling on my part would help I suppose.  

    And lastly - I am lusting after those sandals. They are SO cute.

    Beautiful, Suz!  Polished and classy.

  • Runcarla replied 9 months ago

    Hair is gorgeous!  How funny is that?  Just when you might be able to get it cut.  Fresh, cool outfit- even with the red cardi

  • lisa p replied 9 months ago

    And I agree with Angie in that this length is really good on you .

  • UmmLila replied 9 months ago

    Cool and summery. This is a really nice shorts length for you.

  • Janet replied 9 months ago

    I love that length! It works on you really well (and a favorite on me too). And you are actually making me kind of want those sandals. :-)

  • Suz replied 9 months ago

    So, these are the same shorts as yesterday. I agree they are more flattering at this length - but it helps that the sandals are platform so give me enough height. I have short calves, so when I am not wearing heels, a longer short can make proportions go wildly out of whack. 

    It also helps that I am in a column of colour (or neutral) -- gives a longer, leaner, look. 

    Plus, camera angle -- always a factor! 

    Thanks for all the hair love. it is just shoved behind my ears for now. 3 more weeks until a cut.

    You are a silver belle!!

  • anchie replied 9 months ago

    I love everything about this outfit. Can’t believe that Zara t-shirt is still going strong. How is the comfort of the sandals - they showed up on shopping site that I frequent as recommended for me :)

  • slim cat replied 9 months ago

    Great outfit - love that silver top and your lipstick! Sandals are just perfect!

  • Star replied 9 months ago

    I love the shorts unrolled, and the silvery top I so flattering.  YLF!

  • Preppy Pear replied 9 months ago

    What’s not to love here? That top is magic with your gorgeous hair. Love your longer pixie. I like the shorts both ways.

  • Suz replied 9 months ago

    Anchie, the sandals are comfy. Quite adjustable (velcro fastening on the top) and spongy platform. It's good for my plantar fasciitis. :) 

  • unfrumped replied 9 months ago

    Love the silvery echoes in the outfit! Also is great to pair the long cardi with the shorts--lot of times, long over long is too much for me but this has more of the "pencil skirt" silhouette with the comfort and functionality of shorts. 

  • Sara L. replied 9 months ago

    Super cute with the red sweater.

  • LaPed replied 9 months ago

    Oh, wow, that is so interesting to see the same shorts styled two different ways. This one definitely nails conventionally flattering proportions, rule of thirds and all that. I really like your hair with the extra length -- sassy side-bangs!

  • Windchime replied 9 months ago

    Classy casual!  The silver shirt is brilliant on you, and red is always a winner for you.  It’s great to see your white shorts stylings.

  • kkards replied 9 months ago

    Love the white with silver, it feels clean but not stark. And the sandals are so fun

  • MsMaven replied 9 months ago

    Very impressive! Another great shorts look.

  • Phoebe replied 9 months ago

    Very pretty and such flattering color choices with your hair and complexion. 

    I'm studying the photos that you and Anchie post because I so admire your use of color. The two of you make greying hair look a like fresh and exciting new style option.

  • Debbie replied 9 months ago

    You look great. I love the cardigan with the short. You look very put together.

  • shevia replied 9 months ago

    This is the ideal shorts length in my opinion. The midi of shorts if you will. I love the first picture especially - you are a silver sprite! 

  • rachylou replied 9 months ago

    Oooh! So good!

  • Laurie replied 9 months ago

    Excellent outfit, with or without the cardigan, but the deep red is really amazing when you add that on. Gorgeous!

  • Kyle replied 9 months ago

    I like everything about this outfit, and your longer hair, a lot.

  • avicennia replied 9 months ago

    From one short silver pixie to another — you look lovely!

  • Chris987 replied 9 months ago

    Everything about this is FAB! You have such a great collection of tees that are mixed media and dressy, that elevate other more casual items. I need to remember to look for something similar. I would not have liked those sandals that much if just seeing photos but they look wonderful the way you have styled them.

  • texstyle replied 9 months ago

    This looks great on you Suz - perfect colors and the sandals really make it special.

  • Christina F. replied 9 months ago

    Looking good, Suz! I love how you wear Bermuda shorts.

  • Angie replied 9 months ago

    I didn't know they were the same shorts! You rock Bermudas - and with sneakers too. 

  • suntiger replied 9 months ago

    I like these at this length more than rolled! Looks great!

  • Vix replied 9 months ago

    Hi Suz —

    Had to click through when I saw that top — gorgeous on you, esp with your hair!

    Love this column o’ non-color-color on you as well as the version with the cardigan.

    Funny thing as you know how we have lots of similar body proportions...I have an earlier version of those sandals. Soooo comfortable for miles and miles. Me being me, I metallicized part of them...they’d look great with your top. ;)

  • Style Fan replied 9 months ago

    Lots of love from me!  I am also a fan of the shorts at the longer length.  They are so flatteringly.  The silver and red look amazing on you.  

  • Laura replied 9 months ago

    The gleam of the silvery t-shirt is a fab reflection of your hair, and your new white sandals are an ideal pairing with the shorts!

  • lyn67 replied 9 months ago

    Hah, those kinetic sandals make a differece fo a very trendy new look & love the shorts (and hair:-)) at this length,  just fab!:-)
