Florida’s Finest Guest Blogging Series: Disguised by NuSophisticate

Hello to all you sassy readers out there! My name is Jillian and you can find me blogging at NuSophisticate.com. My blog focuses on easy ways to stay chic both at work and after hours. I am extremely honored and super excited to close out Ashley’s Florida’s Finest series. It’s exciting to know that there are so many fabulous bloggers in Florida, and I for one, plan on visiting them all regularly!

Though Florida is a beautiful place to reside, the sweltering temps can really put a wrench in a fashionistas plans. I’m sure we’ve all gotten dolled up, stepped one foot outside the door, and immediately turned around to change into shorts and a tank to avoid melting down the avenues. Though shorts and a tank go hand in hand with a hot Florida day, the combo can significantly limit the number of places you can go. So, if you’re looking for another spin on the short/tank combo, the outfit below may be for you. It can leave you feeling just as cool and appropriately dressed for countless occasions.

Blouse: Mango

Shorts/Maxi skirt: Forever 21

Heels: Steve Madden

Purse: Fendi

Glasses: Gucci

Though it looks like a skirt, these are really shorts disguised as a maxi skirt. I purchased this short/maxi skirt combo at Forever 21 and I’m officially in love with the idea. You still get all the ventilation needed to get through a hot summer day while being a little more covered up. This outfit took me from pizza with my husband to a birthday dinner for my niece.

I paired my “shorts” with this blouse from Mango. Though this isn’t a tank top, it’s still lightweight and, therefore, perfect for cooling off. Also, the exaggerated armholes go a long way in keeping the body cool.

Finally, I added a little punch to the outfit with a pair of Steve Madden leopard platform sandals. I love the way that the leopard looks next to the polka-dots.

There you have it ladies, a really easy way to stay cool and look chic all summer long.

Feel free to visit me anytime at www.NuSophisticate.com.

Lots of Love,


::ASW Speaking:: Love and adore this outfit. I love the skirt paired with leopard platform heels. It’s an eclectic look!

    Very Chic. I love the idea of the maxi skirt/ shorts look. You are so correct. This horrid heat index in FL, makes it a little hard to be chic at times. But we find ways to over come.

  10. helpful site

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  11. go now

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  12. good website

    Can I simply say what a relief to discover a person that really knows what they’re discussing on the net. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people must read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you surely have the gift.

    The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint me just as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, nonetheless I truly thought you would have something interesting to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you can fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
