Hello hello! How is it Thursday already?! I’ve been busy plugging away at Amazon Prime Day, getting ready to share everything that will be on sale! You won’t want to miss it! If there’s something from the private label brands you have had your eye on, it will most likely be on sale starting next Tuesday. It’s only for 48 hours though! I will have all of the details here on the blog for you on the 12th! It’s going to be fun! There just might be a pair of shorts included in today’s post that will be part of the sale!
What have we been up to this week?! My mom comes today so I’m off to the airport to pick her up and we celebrated the 4th with yard work and fireworks. Have you ever got bitten by yellow flies? I’m pretty sure that’s what happened to me. I woke up yesterday with the biggest welps on my thighs and legs and a very swollen ankle. I did a telehealth call with a doctor and he prescribed an antibiotic. Oh these things you can’t control, just have to deal with. I’m hoping it starts feeling better soon.
I’m a little late to this edition of 7 outfits but better late than never, right?! It’s all about summer shorts! Even though I love dresses, I am a shorts girl too. Before my love of dresses came along, I’d say shorts was mostly what I wore. Everything from casual shorts, dressy shorts, high waisted shorts and patterned shorts. I’m very, very particular about shorts. They can’t be too short, too tight, they have to fit just right. If you are on the hunt for a few good pairs of shorts for summer, I’m rounding up my favorites below. You may even get a little inspiration for your outfits as well.
This 1st pair caught me by surprise. It was a pair I took a chance on ordering from Amazon and I love them! They are pull-on, have a longer length which is great for being 5’6″ and the color is a muted purple and oh so pretty. I paired them with the adorable ruffle top from this set I shared recently. The shorts pull on nicely and sit right at the natural part of my waist. I did find the material to be thicker than I was expecting but I think that makes them easy to dress up. You could easily pair them with a tee and flip flops to dress down. Outfit: v-neck tank | trouser shorts | braided low block heel | rattan earrings | bangle bracelets
Next, is a pair of white denim shorts I can’t stop wearing and sharing! Don’t skip out on a pair of white shorts – they are a summer closet staple! I purchased these last year PP, sized up and love the oversized look of them this year. The last thing you want is a pair of white shorts that are too tight. I unrolled these as well and adore the longer length. They look super cute with a top tucked in or out. Outfit: denim shirt | white denim shorts | gold bracelets | two strap sandals
A pair of white dressy shorts may not be on everyone’s list as a must have for summer but I love them! You can wear them running errands, to dinner and even to a concert. Pack these on your next vacation! I scooped these up early in the season and have worn them a ton! They are high waisted and with an adjustable tie belt. Easily tuck in your favorite top for summer!
A printed short is a must! Usually, I go for dressy printed shorts but changed it up this year and went for a more casual, elastic waist short. They are super cute and classy paired with a simple ruffle tee. These are longer which is great, not quite 5″ though and come in 2 other colors!
I shared these red shorts are an option for Memorial Day and 4th of July. Even though those holidays have passed, these are a pair of shorts you can keep in your closet and pull out year after year. These are pull-on and have an elastic waist all the way around. They are 100% linen so very lightweight and breezy. A sweet reader messaged me recently and mentioned she wore these on the 4th and was so comfortable in them! Yay! I love hearing that! You might just want to hold off if you’ve had your eye on these as they will be on sale for Prime Day next week! Outfit: striped tank | red shorts | braided strap sandals | bangle bracelets
These shorts are on sale for $12!! Holy moly that’s a steal! These are very breezy and lightweight. I have paired them with a printed blouse tucked in and with a dressier top below. They have a wide leg which I think is so flattering and actually makes your legs look smaller than wearing a tighter short. These come in more color options too!
Lastly, here is another pair that are on sale for $11! When I first bought these, I thought they were cute but I never thought I would wear them as much as I have been. Some days I want to put them on but I remembered I just wore them. I love the classic stripes! They are very comfortable with the elastic waist and short, but not too short. These actually run a tad big as I’m wearing the size XS here. I would suggest sizing down. Outfit: ruffle cuff tank | blue & white striped shorts | flip flops
Which pair of shorts are your favorite?! That’s all for today! Have a wonderful Thursday!
