The shorts Renaissance continues here at Take Time for Style! I’m on vacation in our beloved Blue Ridge Mountains and it is hot hot hot y’all. I figured it would be a bit steamy considering it’s June in Georgia so I picked up a few new pairs of shorts before we left. And my favorite pair just so happens to be a lightweight denim style that I scored for a song at Target. I’ve already worn them twice and we’ve only been here a few days. Haha! I can’t help myself. They’re THAT comfy! So, let’s talk about how to wear denim shorts this summer…

If you’re looking to add a new pair of shorts to your summer wardrobe I suggest you try a pair of versatile denim shorts on for size. You’ll have oodles of styling potential and if you stick to a lightweight denim, you won’t have to worry about the extra weight that can come with traditional denim. I’m serious about how versatile denim shorts are…They can be styled a million different ways. I chose to pair my denim shorts with a flowy striped top (similar here) that Carly sent in one of my The Box Service boxes, along with my go-to African bead necklace (similar here), cat-eye sunglasses (similar here) and my animal print Vionic slide sandals. You may remember when I sported them earlier this month…Clearly they’re becoming a fast favorite!

So, that’s just one of the ways I’ve been wearing denim shorts. You can bet more outfit ideas featuring those shorts will be heading your way soon. I still marvel at how long it took me to get back into shorts. Much like the get back in your bathing suit movement, I’m urging you to say my body rocks and I’m going to rock shorts. You’ll look great mamas…and you’ll be so much more comfortable! It’s hard to enjoy the magic of summer when you’re overheating!
