#TheMessyProject - Stepping Outside of the Box

its baaaaaaackkkkkkkk!!!!!! 

Welcome back to Round 5 of #TheMessyProject!!! If you are new around here & have yet to hear about the project, you can check out all the info HERE..... but here's just a quick little intro to help you get more acquainted to the project  ----> 

Sooooo for Novembers group I wanted to do something different. There are 2 girls in the group who write mostly fashion blogs so I wanted to challenge these fellow fashionista's with something different than the usual. Plus I was super excited to have Jenna from the very FIRST Messy Project apart of this months as well so I wanted to challenge her too since this was her second time around. 
I went through a few different options until I decided on THE ONE. I knew this was going to be a challenge, even for me but I wanted to spice things up this month. So I am not going to lie, a few of the girls were not very happy with me when they received their item. They were nervous, but I wasn't. I knew the type of girls I had & I knew they could do this! It was just a matter of stepping outside of the box & thinking differently. Considering that it is the holiday season I wanted to also stay with that theme. I wanted to find something fun & festive that the girls could wear to a  holiday party or event. 
So I decided on this ---->



Navy Blue Sequins Shorts. Oh yes. 
So like I said above this was even a challenge for me. Mainly because I decided to get navy blue & not the typical black. Everything goes with black, so it's much easier to put outfits together. But throwing in a different color changes things up. Nonetheless, after going through my closet & trying on a few different options I finally came to my decision as to how I was going to style these shorts....& I don't know why but every time I go to style my outfit for #TheMessyProject it always turns into some type of theme. So for this round I feel like my outfit had kind of a British feel to it. See for yourself ----->



So as you can see I decided to put tights with the shorts so they could have more of a winter feel to them. I didn't want to do just plain tights so I got ones with some simple white dots on them. Then I added a navy & white stripped top to match the shorts. I wanted the shorts to be the main item so I tucked the top in & hiked up the shorts a little bit. 
Then I added short black boots. I know what you're thinking, black & blue what?!?!? But yes, it is okay to mix & match blue & black. I mean did you think I was going to wear matching navy shoes? That's just too 'matchy matchy' for me....& to finish off the look I kept it simple & added gold bangles & a statement gold ring. Remember less is more. 
So I was having so much fun with this look that I decided to add some more pieces of clothing to take this party outfit outside. So I added a jacket & a red scarf to add some more color!

And just because I am wearing sequins shorts it doesn't mean I can't add some winter accessories like a scarf or GLOVES to the outfit. 



Can you tell I had a lot of fun with this outfit? And as you can see just because they're shorts doesn't mean they can't be worn during the winter. Personally, I think they're the perfect holiday party outfit. Its fun, festive & something original. 
I feel like this round of the project was a great example of stepping outside of the box & trying something new. So how would you have styled the shorts? 
What to see how the other girls styled their sequin shorts!? Check 'em out & show them some love

I LOVE those shorts! They would be perfect for a holiday party like NYE! Awesome pic!

Kate said...

Very cute! I absolutely love how you wore these... especially with the tights!

julia rose. said...

GREAT idea going with the shorts!! I absolutely LOVE them! You've definitely inspired me to bust out some cute shorts and tights this winter. Boom shaka laka!!

Niki Caron said...

You look incredible as always! I'm obsessed with these shorts! And I love your tights too!

Michael Z said...

Holy cute! Kelly, I love this. You nailed it. I love the contrast of seasons in the last pictures with just the gloves on. And I have to say, when I scrolled down and saw the item, my eyes popped. I don't know WHAT I'd do if I was tasked with making an outfit from these!

CALLIE said...

O these messy projects are my favorite!!! I love seeing everyone's take on the different pieces you choose. Loving the shorts :)

Christina @My Life, Laughs, and Love said...

the shorts look AMAZING! you rocked them so well :) Love how you paired them with the tights and you looked so cute with those gloves.

you, Kelly, are a genius :)

Alana Christine said...

haha. I bet they were shocked to receive those! I definitely wouldn't have known what to do with them!

J and A said...

How cute are you? First of all: Look at your weather!!! I am moving there stat. Love these boots with it. That was my downfall for sure. Needed short boots. You can totally pull this skirt off. :) Well thank you for pushing me out of my comfort zone!! :)

Amy said...

Love how you used these shorts!
Definitely a daring piece of clothing, but girl you can rock it!

Anonymous said...

I wouldn't have worn those shorts. I have no desire to look like a street hooker. Hiking the shorts up was a great way to look like you are ready to work the street corner. The messy project is a good idea but why force the other bloggers to dress like tramps? Those shorts could not be uglier.

In regards to the post above from Anonymous.
All I have to say is....Jealous much? Negativity will get you nowhere sweetie. And during this wonderfully loving and giving time of year, if you feel you must slander someone, at least have the b*lls to use your real name.
Happy Holidays to you.

Anonymous said...

Hey anonymous. If u think this is what a hooker looks like then count me in she looks fab. A little jealous. Haters gonna hate. U must be a two ton tessie

Nicole said...

Ooooh, I loved that you switched it up with the shorts! Great job, once again!

Chantelle Rowley said...

you look fabulous as always! to bad anonymous doesn't know what fashion is!

Hot Mess Mommie said...

I love anonymous comments. Balls, grow them and own your words.

Lins said...

Celia Houck said...

Oh em gee!!! LOVE!!! The tights are just too dern cute! Please come and shop for me, and lay out my outfits for me. K? Thanks!

Anonymous said...

Dont jump down my throat but I agree with anon! Those shorts are very short and trashy looking.

ashbash said...

omg like what a concept, " short shorts." i love how people act like shorts and tights in the winter is some huge deal. and seriously i would love to see a hooker on the street wearing that. best dressed hooker forsure.
lets just set the standard for whats trashy: writing on walls anonymously, knock of purses, lying about your life. etc.etc.etc.

its simple. " if you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all"

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Cute!! I love how you all pair things in your own way! Such a cool project, I think I'll sign up...finally! ;)

Lindsey Leitner said...

I love those shorts! I basically love anything sequins (when its tastefully at least)

Cassie @ Live.Laugh.L0ve. said...

I really didn't know hookers looked fabulous! ;) I absolutely loved this outfit and all of the other girls outfits. Yes, they are short shorts but paired with a pair of tights or leggings who gives an eff? You made this outfit work and you look classy! xoxo

Jade Sierra said...

Love these shorts! You totally rocked them! :)

Kelly said...

Seriously, anonymous commenters can suck it. So rude and uncalled for. If you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all! GROSS! I think you look HAWT and did a FAB job with the project! Even though I wanted to KILL you at first! LOL!! Happy to have been apart of it!

Julie Marie said...

what a fun idea!! love it..you look cute as always xo

Paige said...

Oh yeah, Kelly, you totally look like a hooker! Geez, this anonymous girl should get a clue and maybe go to any store at all and look at shorts. Where does she shop? I shop at Target and Old Navy and their shorts are just as short as the shorts you picked to wear!

It would have been near impossible for you to get me in those shorts, but I love the way you styled them! :)

Alyssa @ Sugar, Spice, and a Dash of Advice said...

Love this!! I'd never know what to do with sequin shorts but you (and the other girls) totally rocked them! :)

Janna Renee said...

Hmmmm. It's really funny that Anon's are the only ones saying negative things. I would believe them if they didn't sound like negative nancy's hiding behind their computers. Yes, they are short, but you all paired them with flippin' tights and leggings. It's not like you are rockin' 'em bare legged (which all of you could do because you all have fabulous legs). You all made a fashion statement and THAT'S the point. If any blogger had a prob with them, they could have said no. Obviously, they ALL chose to wear them, and by creating controversy, you proved that you are doing something right! Meanness is the UGLIEST thing someone can wear, so we know that Anon can't be pretty from the inside out ;)

Amber said...

Oh I love it! You look so cute. I def wouldn't be able to pull off those shorts!

Bran said...

I think you look amazing. My head would turn If you walked by me! Anon just wishes they could dress like you.

Lulu said...

Stunning shorts! You look terrific!
(I'm so glad Yours Truly sent me here)

Heidi-likes said...

In love with the sequin shorts, they look fab with the striped top x

My-cliffnotes said...
