Summer Shorts Shenanigans

It is finally becoming shorts whether in CA and by shorts weather for me I need it to be in the 80s. No 70ish temps give me hot hot. Obviously that means shedding of layers and clothing and I have deemed my summer outfit attire to be primarily fun, cute blouses with shorts. Yes shorts, a few years ago you couldn't have caught me in anything but jeans during the summer, yes I know jeans. But I was scared to death of showing off my legs in shorts. Now I have fully embraced them and I feel a lot more cooler in the summer.
I found some summer outfits I hope to be sporting this summer, if I am cool enough to sport them.



Any and all of these

Love the simplicity of the outfit




FYI on this outfit, you have to wear a cami under the green blouse it is really sheer,
I know because I own it.
Can you tell I love blouses with shorts, definitely my summer staples!

I have always hated shorts but there are so many cute ones this year! LOFT has some great ones that I love. But I pretty much live in sundresses and maxi's during the Summer :)

Ashley said...

I have just started wearing shorts as well because I used to have excema on my leg. So now it is all about sundresses and shorts!! Soo much fun!

Love shorts for summer time! However don't you feel that it takes a certain shirt for shorts i.e longer and flowy? Anyway, I don't have enough of the right type of shirts! Not yet any :)

Sue said...

I love the outfits you put together! I'm completely the opposite though... it hit the high 60's and I threw my shorts on. Of course coming out of a 20 degree winter the 60's feel really warm to me!

Oh my goodness!! I love all of those outfits! I understand your feelings of shorts and steering clear of them in the past. I feel that way about sleeveless tops. It's SOOO hot here in Texas in the summer, and I always want to wear a tank top, but I hate my arms. But last summer, I just went with it. I wore sleeveless dresses and tank tops without a cardigan and I loved it. I realized that yeah, I may not like my arms, and think that it looks really weird, but other people aren't going to think that at all. It was liberating. It's still a struggle though... and I have to still remind myself, but it's worth it. I love all your outfits and really want some white shorts. I need to look for those. Stat! ;)

Very cute! Is it sad that I only have two pairs of shorts that are practically the same? Ay! How embarrassing. I guess it is time to show those legs! :) The third from the bottom with the camel bag and blue striped fedora is probably my fave. Can't get enough blue and neutrals this season!

Have a fab weekend,
