Summer Shorts I’ll Actually Wear

Easy-breezy dresses are definitely my go-to pieces during the summer.  Actually, I almost exclusively wear dresses all year round.

I can’t help but notice all the fabulously chic summer shorts that are everywhere at the moment.  I am so attracted to these pants and think they are quite versatile.  I mean, they can be dressed up with a tailored jacket and pumps or cuffed and worn with flats for a laid-black look.  The only thing is, my 32-year old, bottom-heavy self is usually not very comfortable in short pants.

The slightly relaxed silhouette and longer lengths of boyfriend shorts, however, seem to provide the perfect balance between my fascination with and reservations about summer shorts.

I have found two pairs of shorts, both at the Loft recently.  One is a more polished, darker denim pair, and the other a laid-back, vintage-inspired, cuffed denim pair.

Here’s how I have been wearing these shorts this summer.

    You look wonderful in those shorts, you know you do no wrong style wise! And that straw tote was seriously a steal!

    I think I'm more into the longer shorts this season also. Having that said I only have one pair of them, and since I'm trying to stay on a budget I'll probably still wear my short shorts that I own, but I do love the long ones!
