Over the summer, I fell in love with a pair of high-waisted burgundy shorts from F21 and purchased them right on the spot. Then, you know what happens next— summer ended before I even got a chance to wear these beautiful babies. However, I turned my thinking cap on and realized that this love affair didn’t have to end before it started. The solution? Stockings. I pulled on a pair of stockings under the shorts so my legs wouldn’t be completely bare against the harsh Chicago wind.
