Six Different Ways to Wear Shorts this Summer

Shorts are an essential part of my summer wardrobe – especially living in Houston – temperatures as high at 90+ these are really a must. Because I spend a lot of time in these, I like having different options for styling them. Today I’m sharing six ways I like to wear them in the summer, to give you some inspiration when it comes to wearing shorts. ๐Ÿ™‚

Shorts + Blouses

A blouse doesn’t always belong to a dressed up look. Sure they look great with trousers and skirts but jeans and jeans shorts are fair game too. In this look, I went for a casual vibe (my usual) wearing them with a blouse with my favorite slide on sandals, neutral handbag and minimal accessories.

Shorts + Sweaters

Of all the ways to wear shorts, I think wearing them with sweaters is one of my favorite. Especially if paired with a lightweight sweater, one that is breathable enough to wear in summer. This look I think is also perfect for beachside and lakeside days. ๐Ÿ™‚

Shorts + Tanks

Tanks are so breeze that this pairing is a no-brainer. I especially love ones that have pretty details like ruffles. As for the shorts are so comfortable, I like the baggy fit and fun details like stitching on the sides and the cuff hem. I paired them with wedges – which are a go-to shoe this summer – and a fun clear bag which can also be worn without the insert. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shorts + Button Down Shirt

Button down shirts are a wardrobe essential on their own. Because I already owned this one, I thought it would be perfect to pair with shorts and use as a cover up while at the pool. If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ll see a few pins on how to style button down shirts in a similar way to this look.

Shorts + T-shirts

Lastly, paired with t-shirts are a combination you can not go wrong with. This is one of the ways I wear them the most, especially to be around the house. Now tell me, what’s your favorite way to style and wear shorts in the summer?

How to Get Ready for the Nordstrom Sale

Are you ready for the biggest sale of the year? I am! So much that I’ve started rounding up a handful of favorites from the Nordstrom Sale to share with you. Before we get to that, here are a few details to keep in min about the sale.

What is the N Sale?

It’s one of the biggest and most popular sales of the year. One that helps lots of shoppers get ready to the season ahead. In order to shop early from July 12- 18, you must be a card holder. Being a cardholder is good for a few reasons:

  • Nordstrom cardmembers shop 7 days before everyone else.
  • You can 3 points per dollar on Nordstrom credit card purchases in stores or online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and Trunk Club.
  • ย Points turn into cash back rewards called notes. If you don’t want to get the card, you can also shop the sale on these dates July 19 – August 4.

Keep in mind that the sale ends on August 5, which means that all prices will go back up.

What to Shop for?

I feel that this depends on your style and location. What I do is comb through the endless list of items on sale and bring you a round up of those I think are of great value. Having shopped the sale before, I feel that these categories are the most sought after; sweaters, denim, boots, handbags, outerwear, and accessories. If you keep reading, you will see a sneak peek of my picks in these categories.

How to Shop?

There are a few ways you can shop. 1) You could head to the site as soon as the sale starts at 12:30 ET on July 12 and shop online. 2) You can follow me on LIKEtoKNOW.it where I will be sharing more items from the sale. 3) You can use the Shop the N Sale tab on the drop down menu at the top of the blog. 4) Shop by keeping an eye out on my Instagram posts and Stories.

Trendy Thursday LinkUp: Trendy Handbags to Get This Summer

Among my favorite accessories are straw bags, these trendy handbags are perfect for summer. While I already have a few in my collection, I wanted to search the web to find some additional options that I could share with you. And I have linked them all below! Some are very affordable starting at just $20. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The one that I’m wearing here I found at T.J. Maxx and have loved wearing it. It goes with just about everything and is so stylish that I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it. My favorite part is that it’s on sale at $20. It brings a strap so that it can be worn as a crossbody.

Trendy Thursday LinkUp: What I Packed and Wore for a Weekend in Austin

Did you see my posts and stories about our weekend in Austin? We spent two days at the Omni Barton Creek and let me tell you it was a much needed getaway. At least once a year, we try to take a solo trip, because couples vacations are as important as family vacations. So we called up Alanzo’s grandma and asked her to keep the girls for a few days – luckily, she agreed! The girls had a blast and so did we. Head on over to my Insta stories to check out highlights on our weekend in Austin. ๐Ÿ™‚

So today, I wanted to share what I wore with you, especially since it’s officially summer and I assume many of you may be looking for fun new pieces to add to your wardrobes.

Yellow Floral top

Nothing says summer like yellow, am I right? And I thought this breezy blouse would be perfect for traveling from Houston to Austin. I snagged it Express Factory Outlets along with the romper I shared last week. Paired it with shorts because they’re super comfortable to travel in and with the Texas heat, it’s a bit hard to wear jeans at times.

Black One Shoulder Two Piece Swimsuit

This swimsuit has to be my favorite two piece. I just love the one shoulder detail and high waisted bottom. The bottoms are a higher cut than I usually wear but it still offered enough coverage in my opinion. Plus, it is only $15. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Why You Need a Jean Jacket in your Closet this Season

A jean jacket in my opinion is the must have accessory. I’m calling it an accessory because I truly believe is the final piece to an outfit. The same as a bag or earrings. ๐Ÿ™‚ I mean, it can be worn with just about anything too; with dresses, shorts, rompers, jumpsuits… And even with jeans; one can’t go wrong with a little denim on denim, right?! What about tied around the waist? That’s another fun way to wear a denim jacket.

Since finding this one, I haven’t stopped wearing it. So I thought I should share it on the blog along with similar options. In this look I wore it with a cute floral romper I picked up at Express Factory Outlet, if you want to find one near you, you can search here. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love shopping at the outlets and feel lucky that living in Texas means having several outlet malls in the area. While I found several styles like this romper at great prices on my last trip, I have admit that I wish the same were available online. Most in-store styles are exclusive to the outlets and can’t be found at Express. But I’ve made sure to link a few of my favorites rompers that are shoppable online for you below. ๐Ÿ™‚
