Fashion with Kelly: Little Runaway

The "sporty chic" look has been all over the runway for a while now; this is not by any means your everyday tennis shoe & workout tee look though, but instead more of a tailored, subtle, and (most of all) playful wink to the tomboy. As it finally seeps in to the ready-to-wear market, there are now plenty of options for styling this sort of look. At the moment, I am loving the track short. 

"Wait," you say. "I can wear an elastic-waisted pair of shorts, and not only get away with it, but also look super fly?

Yes, yes you can.
I paired these denim track shorts with a slouchy yet luxurious tee to make sure this sleek look doesn't get sloppy. I then decided to go all Pacific NW-style on it by adding a sweet floral cap, chunky sandals, and frilly socks. This 90's-Courtney-Love/Sporty Luxe look is unexpected, but tied in with minimalist jewelry, it becomes a really chic interpretation of the trend.
