My goodness, is it really May already? Where has this year gone? Well, May means one thing: shorts season.
Every year when shorts season rolls around there’s always a big question of what trends are going to pop up this time. Some of them are classic – they will always be in – and others should never come back. One trend that will always stay en vogue is white shorts.
The minute the sun comes out to stay, I start wearing white shorts. There is just something that feels sophisticated and cute about a dark-colored top with light-colored shorts or pants.
Today’s outfit features one of my favorite looks. It just so happens to consist of red, white and blue. I’m a very patriotic person so this is my favorite outfit to wear for small-town events.
I found this shirt at the outlets in Livermore. I love taking a trip to the outlets. Sometimes it’s hit or miss, but the day I found this top, I fell in love. My favorite part is the navy buttons it has going down the back of the shirt. The most delicate details make the most impact.
I paired it with my favorite white shorts. These shorts are not too short nor see-through, so they are perfect for summertime. Can’t forget my pop of color – I added a pair of bright neon green accented shoes to give it something extra. My mom wasn’t sure what look I was going for with the shoes, but I love them.
There are so many styles of shorts to wear during summer and I just have to share a few more of my favorites.
I am really into longer shorts right now. Not board shorts or Bermuda shorts necessarily, but ones that are a happy medium between the short white ones shown in the photo and knee-length ones.
I saw a pair the other day that were cuffed and came to about midthigh. They were perfect. If I didn’t own a ridiculous amount of shorts already, I would have bought those. Pair those shorts with a cute spaghetti-strap shirt or a sleeveless tank and you’re set for a fun day of shopping or a lazy Saturday walking around town.
I know that hot weather is coming at a rapid rate so I have been trying to wear colorful shorts with my favorite jean jacket as much as possible. I know that within the next month I will have to move my jean jacket to the back of my closet and that absolutely breaks my heart.
Until then I will just wear it to death. If you see me around town wearing it, just smile and nod. Jean jackets are my go-to when there is a slight breeze or chill in the air. They match virtually everything, and I have yet to find an outfit I don’t like to wear one with.
Hope you all are prepping your closets for summer clothes and making sure you have all the key pieces you will need to survive the heat.
