Recent Finds: Summer Shorts
I hope you’re having a wonderful week. A few weeks ago I talked about trying to find the perfect length summer shorts over on Instagram (you know somewhere between the teenager booty shorts and the knee length bermuda style) and many of you messaged me saying you struggle with the same thing!
So today I’m sharing a round up of my fav summer shorts as part of my “Recent Finds” series. If you missed the first few posts in the series, you can find Spring Style Favs here + Maternity/Nursing Basics here + Basic Tees here!
A "Recent Find" will always be something that I've actually purchased myself and either can't wait to wear or have already been wearing and loving for weeks.
Denim Midi Short
These are my go-to shorts this summer. Denim shorts are a summer wardrobe staple, and this medium wash color is as versatile as it is flattering.
STYLE TIP: If you’re self conscious about your legs or carry weight in your hips, opting for a darker color denim will be most flattering.
Olive Twill Shorts
A mid-rise, looser leg opening, and adjustable hem length make these olive shorts perfect for dressing up or down all summer long. I love to pair these olive shorts with a basic white or grey tee + white converse sneakers. You could also dress them up with a bright orange top or button down blouse for a warm evening out to dinner.
STYLE TIP: If you’re tall or just looking for a little extra length, try shorts with a pre-rolled hem and unroll to your desired length. Press the seam with an iron (or flat iron if your in a pinch) to keep the hem in place.
Navy Twill Shorts
My husband wears navy pants and shorts all year long + I always love how great it pairs with grey, so I decided to take a style cue from my husband (shhh... don’t tell him or he’ll be bragging about it all week) and try a pair of navy shorts this season. I especially love the faded navy color of this pair (same style as the olive pair) + have already worn them a ton! My fav combo is a grey tee + coordinating faded navy baseball hat.
Distressed Denim Shorts
I’ve added a few other distressed denim pairs I love as well. I didn’t end up buying any of these, because a Midwest girl only needs so many shorts. But I highly recommend any of the Ne(x)t Level Stretch Midi Shorts from American Eagle. Perfect length + super comfy.
Light Wash Denim Chambray
Ok, so technically this isn't a pair of shorts, but I had to share it anyways. Although I went shopping for shorts, I happened to find this light wash denim chambray on the clearance rack for only $12! Literally a steal! I can't wait to wear it more this fall or throw over a tee + shorts for chilly summer nights.
