These Shorts are Perfect for Fun Summer Days

This post is sponsored by DENIZEN® from Levi’s® jeans.

Summer is officially here! I love summers in St. Louis because there’s so much to do. I really enjoy living in South City, which is home to the Missouri Botanical Garden, the oldest botanical garden in continuous operation in the entire country. As a resident of the neighborhood, I get to explore the grounds during special early hours on Wednesdays and Saturdays. As a photographer, I take advantage of this cool opportunity to take pictures of the garden before droves of visitors arrive.

On my photo walking tours, it’s important for me to be comfortable. So, you can usually catch me rocking a favorite pair of my DENIZEN® from Levi’s® jeans. Since it’s been fairly hot in St. Louis already, shorts have been my go-tos. You saw how I wore the Modern Shorts in my Spring Denim Guide. Today, I’m sharing the Modern Skinny Shorts. With a 12″ inseam and a 1″ cuff, they’re a perfect choice for those days when you want to wear shorts but not super short shorts. You know what I mean?

I’m wearing the Modern Skinny Shorts in dark wash in a size 6. They’re also available in 3 other colors―white, black, and medium wash.

The Modern Skinny Shorts are fused with the ESSENTIAL STRETCH I’ve grown to love and expect from DENIZEN® jeans. When I need to sit or get low to capture a particular frame, these shorts move right along with me. And, the best part? They hold their shape all day long.

What I love about DENIZEN® jeans, and these shorts in particular, is that they seamlessly hug my curves to give a flattering fit.

These shorts are sold at Target stores and online. They’re only $22.99 too!
