If you’ve been around these parts during the summer before, you know it was only in the past year or so that I truly embraced shorts. My shape has changed so much since I had children, like most mamas, and it took me a while to accept my new curves. That being said, once I threw caution to the wind and gave shorts a chance again, I never looked back. Being cool and comfortable is so much better than stressing over a dimple or two. Casual summer style is where it’s at folks!
And this summer has been no different from last summer. I’ve been living in shorts, namely Athleta shorts. I have yet to find comfier shorts than one can score there. I’m fairly obsessed with Athleta in general to tell the truth. Remember our girls’ getaway at the Arizona dude ranch? 75% of my vacay wardrobe was Athleta. Bwah! So, it was a pair of my beloved Atheleta gear that I rocked on the first day of our family vacation this week along with a flowy tank, a pair of my beloved Birkenstocks, a string of African beads and the straw cross body bag you may remember from our NYC trip this spring.
There is something about casual summer style that just makes me smile. It may not be the most fashion forward, but it’s comfy and what do us busy moms want more than cute comfort when it comes to our wardrobe? Not much. Am I right? And being that I was wine tasting outdoors at my favorite North Georgia winery, cool comfort was just the ticket. Who wants to be strapped into constricting clothes or shoes when they’re trying to relax? Not this girl!
So, what does your casual summer style look like? Are shorts a big part of your summer looks too?!
