Cleveland Fashion Ideas on How to wear Shorts in Spring

Streetfashionista Ambassador Renate @ the 'Q' 
making the shorts-and-tights trend super fancy,
 with Cleveland Cavaliers wine colored tights
 and sequined sweater vest, warm poncho,
newsboy hat and boots. 

For obvious reasons, shorts are traditionally a fashion statement for warmer weather, but here on the North Coast in Cleveland, where a prolonged chilly winter gives way to a late Summer, shorts in Spring can become a necessary fashion item for women who want Winter to end.  

Unlike the Bavarian Lady's who wear short Lederhosen all year round, most Women in Cleveland put away their shorts before the cold fall and winter days, opting for jeans, pants, and tights instead until the hot summer sun prompts us to bring them back out. Except…we don’t really have to do that, because it’s totally possible to wear shorts in the Spring and make them look amazing. And warm, because that is clearly the most important thing on a sunny but cold day in Cleveland.

I’ve seen a lot of people pull off the shorts-and-tights (strumphosen) trend with ease, managing to look put-together and effortlessly styled at the same time. I have tried this myself and I kind of feel like it can be pulled off by anyone who is scared by the idea. But these outfit ideas below might change your mind. From distressed blue denim shorts worn with dainty heels to more formal shorts paired with cardigans, these looks are unexpected, fun, and refreshingly unique during a pre-summer season when it sometimes feel like we’re all too bundled up. 

Here are some fashion ideas on how to wear shorts in spring that will inspire you to take yours out of the drawer before July 4th!

So kombiniert ihr Shorts richtig!Inspiration gefällig?
Das sind die schönsten Looks mit Shorts für JEDE Wetterlage!
Kelly Laret - Das ist zwar keine Jeans Shorts, aber die Kombi würde bestimmt
auch mit ner Shorts + Strumpfhose

Heels and booties look good with shorts, but you can go with
white sneakers, which make a good contrast! Tight denim
shorts look very trendy with black motorcycle jacket and
white sneakers, wear a warm sweater,
and you’re good to go.

Terry Campell shows that even super short shorts can work -
especially when you add layers on top.

Looking forward to summertime in the Sun with the dogs.

ARK in Berea (ICEAnews) - Members of Pakistan World Peace Daily had reasons to be excited and joyful during their Mother Earth celebration of the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) on April 22, 2017 that was organized by Pakistani Peace Emissary, Baba Brohi in Margalla Hills National Park at Islamabad, Pakistan.  Starting with the announcement of the many new trees to planted and the celebration afterword, they showed the same sensitivity for nature as they do for people and their love for the wild places.

Pakistan Peace Emissary

In her testament honoring the work of the Pakistani People, for their generous voluntary care of Mother Earth, Ambassador Renate meditated on the people’s role as protectors of Pakistan, the Planet and for All the Worlds Children:
“Let us,” she urged, “protect Mother Earth in our lives, so that we can protect others, and protect All the Worlds Children.” That means, she explained in a simple way, “protecting ourselves and the beauty of the natural world, as the Theory of Iceality shows us: respecting each of God’s creatures and respecting the environment in which they live.”
Dr. Renate continued to describe in detail a Worlds Children ethic of iceality care: “It means protecting people, animals and plants, especially showing loving concern for each and every person, especially children, the elderly, those in need, who are often the last we think about. It means caring for one another in our families: husbands and wives first protect one another, and then, as parents, they care for their children, and children themselves, in time, protect their parents. It means building sincere friendships in which we protect one another in trust, respect, and goodness. In the end, everything has been entrusted to our protection, and all of us are responsible for it. We are all protectors of Mother Earth’s gifts!”

She made a special plea to world leaders to join the Worlds Children in this ethic. “Please, I would like to ask all those with positions of responsibility in economic, political and social life, and all men and women of good will: Let us be protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of All the Worlds Children and of the their environment.”
Ambassador Renate
This message is a positive one, calling for goodness and tenderness in the treatment of all others and the world. Addressing the hard-hardheartedness many presume to be necessary for survival in this world, she declared, “We must not be afraid of goodness, nor even of tenderness!”

In conclusion, the Ambassador spoke of the role of the Pakistani Peace Emissary as a Guardian. “To protect the whole of Pakistan, to protect each person, especially the poorest, to protect the Animals and the Plants: this is a service that Baba Brohi has called to carry out, yet one to which all of us are called, so that the star of hope will shine brightly for future generations: "Let us protect with love all that Mother Earth has given us!”

The result of a major global public promotion at the United Nations level, is that the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts is now considered as the cornerstone of the modern global sustainable culture of peace movement and this concept is now replicated by artists, architects, urban planners and sustainable organizations throughout the World, reflecting a still growing global audience, including:
