Spring and fall are my favorite seasons, sartorially speaking, because I love all the style possibilities the weather allows. It’s cool enough for layers, yet not so cold that all anyone ever sees is my winter coat. I love being able to roll up my jeans without my ankles freezing, and it’s nice to be able to wear long sleeves without breaking a sweat.

Yet I know that soon enough it’s going to be summer, and wearing corduroy pants, even if they’re rolled up, will be less than desirable. I was thinking about that as I put this outfit together today, and how I’m going to have to find a summer-appropriate replacement for this pair of much-loved red cords.
I’m guessing that brightly hued shorts will be summer’s answer to the colored jeans of the cooler seasons. And while I go back and forth about how I feel about shorts, after a few hot days in jeans, I always break down and buy a few pairs each summer. I think a red or coral pair will be in order this year.
Here's the summer version of my outfit today:
Will you be trading in your colored denim for some colored shorts this summer?
