Trendy Thursday LinkUp: 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. 🙂

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. 🙂

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. 😉

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?

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. 🙂

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. 😉
