Casual Jean Shorts

Casual Jean Shorts

Like Kristin, I've been embracing shorts more and more often lately. I think having two young boys has made it essential. I'm constantly running, bending, sitting and man is it a whole lot easier to have a good time with them and really let go and play in shorts, like these jean shorts, than it is in a dress. That doesn't mean I have to look or feel frumpy, ya know what I'm sayin'?! Jean shorts was one area I was struggling with. They are so versatile and a great summer staple, yet I was really...

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,...

Thanks to that warmer weather I've found myself turning to shorts and pieces like a good summer hoodie more and more. Now as far as the shorts go, not just any pair of shorts will do. Lightweight linen is where it's at. These striped J. Jill mixed stripes linen drawstring shorts are my new favorites. Not only are they uber airy and comfortable, but they go with SO much. The chambray...

Seven Ways to Wear Shorts

It took me quite a while, but I finally hopped on the shorts bandwagon last year. My hubs convinced me to stop being so silly and body conscious after one too many uncomfortable trips to Disney. Instead of shorts I used to rock capris and if you've been to Walt Disney World during the summer you know that nothing but shorts will do if you don't want to totally melt. So, I picked up some shorts and never looked back. Sure, my legs are on the paler side and I'm still working on getting back into...
