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 finding it hard to find the perfect pair. All the jean shorts I found were either too frumpy or way too daisy duke for my tastes. Until I found this great pair from Loft. They have a 4 inch inseam, which works well for my height of 5′ 7″ and I really like the relaxed skinny fit.
To keep the feeling casual yet pulled together, I paired it with an oversized top with lace trim under a white tank. I wore this top from Francesca’s a great deal last fall, most often with bootcut jeans, and think it works great for summer too. It’s no longer available but here is a similar blouse that would also work great.
My Born sandals from J. Jill have also become a summer staple. I literally wear these some part of every day. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. These sandals are like buttah (butter) on my feet.
This is the type of look that I’m in all weekend these days. Jean shorts are just perfect for Target runs and ice cream treats. And of course belly laughs like this one from my littlest guy who is just really funny. Watch out world, I think I have a class clown on my hands!
