This blog post is inspired by Ashlee Simpson, who was just recently spotted wearing her itty-bitty cutoff denim shorts even though it’s the dead of winter.

Okay, so maybe it’s not “real” winter since Ashlee lives in sunny LA, but her rocker-inspired outfit was too cute not to copy.

Ashlee Simpson’s usual rock ‘n roll tee and ripped denim shorts style gets the cold treatment from a Topshop checkered wool cape and thick black tights.

We love the celebrity must-have oversized sunnies, but we traded in the ultra-expensive Fendi purse and the classic lace-up oxfords for something more hardy and grungy.

Lastly, we added a lovely scarf and a cute hat just to make things a little bit more warm and cozy.

No one in their right mind would probably wear denim shorts when temperatures drop to 40 degrees Fahrenheit and below, but this is just right for Ashlee S. and LA, where average temperatures are 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Do you love winterizing your denim shorts, too?
