One of the things I always dread about summer is wearing shorts. I always see cute shorts that I like, but I rarely ever buy them because I am so picky! I don’t like super short shorts, and absolutely hate that feeling of being overexposed. However, I have finally found a pair of shorts that I actually feel comfortable in and will be wearing all summer. These chambray shorts are the perfect length, and I love the gold button details! They come in white, too, so I will probably be grabbing those soon. These pink shorts don’t have the buttons, but they are the same fit (Ryan fit) and come in several other colors and prints.
This striped off the shoulder top completely won me over the second I tried it on. I am in LOVE with the fluted sleeves, and the stripes complement the sailor-style shorts perfectly. My favorite part about this top is that it’s super hard to wrinkle, so it would be great to pack for a weekend getaway. I don’t know about you guys, but if I can avoid steaming or ironing clothes that is a huge win! I think this top would also be adorable paired with a contrasting print, like this floral skirt or these printed jeans.
How do you guys feel about shorts in general? Do you tend to avoid them (like I usually do), or would you wear them year-round if you could? Are there any specific brands that you always turn to if you’re looking for a more modest pair of shorts? Let’s chat in the comments!
