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. 🙂
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. 😉
