I am 42 and I have nicely curved legs and I am a little vain about my full calf muscles and small ankles and cute knees. In heels I just feel my legs look that much better and calves are such a classy way to feel sexy!
I really like this look in the Fall , I think it works better with more tailoring . In other words a tank top and this look is not my thing.

Does this look scream tacky or desperate to any one? Cause I feel awesome in my shorts and high heel espadrilles, but maybe its "too much"? I think I look younger than 42, but don't we all?
Nothing is wrong with that! As long as you feel good and look good who cares what anyone else thinks? I don't think its too much.

All that matters is that YOU feel good. If you're at all self conscious about your look, it will reflect on the way you carry yourself.

You like it, go for it!

However, it is never too late to look for a different look that may be as flattering as the one you love but are unsure about.

I'm not much of a shorts person, but it sounds like you'd know how to pull if off well!

Heels and shorts should never be worn together in my opinion. Espadrilles, sure...that can be a cute look. But heels...no way.
