Summer Shorts

A few weeks back, Grace {The Stripe} wrote a spot on post about the current state of the denim short. It’s worth a read but boils down to the struggle to find a pair that is somewhere between a cut-off denim diaper and a sad denim Bermuda short. Ever since reading it, I’ve thanked my lucky shopping stars that I found a pair a couple years back that’s somewhere in the middle.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find another pair like them since. They’re either way too tight in the legs (from a combination of muscular and post-baby bod thighs), too short, way too high in the rise or just ill-fitting. I’m not quite willing to shell out a bunch of cash for a higher end pair so if you have any favorites, send them my way.

Gap Denim Shorts (so old) | Old Navy Tassel Bag (extra 20% off now)
Loeffler Randall Star Sandals | J.Crew Sunglasses
J.Crew Tassel Earrings

This trusty old pair is from the Gap and I am already worried about my options when this pair inevitably get stained or ripped. Until then, I’ll be wearing them nonstop on summer weekends.

Last week I shared this top with dark denim for a night out but I love it for more casual days too. It would be great for a summer concert (Waterfront Wednesday anyone?), backyard bbq or just doing a little shopping.

p.s. – this tassel bag that I am obsessed with and am still shocked is an Old Navy find is 20% off now and if you have super cash, you can use that to get it for an even bigger steal.
