Hi, friends! How are you!? We’ve been busy with swimming lessons, planning for a 3rd birthday, a Disney trip very soon and family coming to town! I had expected things to slow down a little bit here but I didn’t expect it this much. I miss opening up my computer every day to blog! But I know I need to devote my time to the little guy for the summer. My goal is 1 blog post a week and then pick it up more when school starts back for him. What I thought was going to be a slow summer is turning out to be so busy and I know it’s going to go by so fast. What’s also going to be here so soon is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s one of my favorite sales of the year (early access starts July 12th)! I’m already saving my dollar bills to score some really great pieces at amazing prices!
Today I am rounding up the best shorts for summer. I am definitely a shorts and top girl, and find I gravitate towards separates more so than dresses. I will definitely reach for a pair of shorts before I reach for a dress. I love the versatility of shorts being worn different ways with different tops. My shorts collection is pretty much complete for the summer with the perfect denim shorts, casual olive utility shorts and cute ruffle seersucker shorts. Last night, I counted how many shorts I have purchased this summer (the number is kind of embarrassing) but I kept this roundup pretty basic with ones that you can mix and match a ton!
Denim roll shorts in light indigo wash – I love these for everyday, running errands, hanging out at home with just a basic white tee (on sale). These have definitely been my most worn short this summer! A basic white tee with the front tuck is on repeat all of the time and it’s so easy! I also love adding a blouse to these to add something a little different.
Soft utility shorts (additional 20% off) – These are my 2nd most worn pair of shorts! I throw on this easy striped top a ton with them – I call this my summer uniform! They are super comfy for running around town and super easy to go with a ton of tops! I am so drawn to this olive green color right now.
Seersucker shorts – I love these shorts for dressing up! High waisted shorts are super flattering. I wore these in Charleston and received a ton of compliments. Seersucker is one thing that doesn’t go out of style. I will be wearing these for summers to come!
Denim cutoff shorts – a good pair of denim cut off shorts are a must! I love the button detail on the front of these and they stay in place. That is probably my biggest pet peeve with shorts – wearing shorts that don’t stay on my hips. I am still on the hunt for a good pair of cut off distressed denim shorts (that aren’t too short) which are another must have!
White denim roll shorts – Another favorite! I actually purchased these last summer and they are back again (but selling fast)! I wear white denim pretty much year round (that’s definitely one rule I don’t follow and I find living in Florida at the beach, I can get away with it) and when it gets super hot, I trade out my white denim for these white denim shorts. So easy and versatile!
