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!

  1. 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 :)

  7. 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 :)

  9. 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!

  15. 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! ;)

  29. 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,
