Dressing up denim shorts

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! The temps finally got into the 80’s and we had a hot and sunny weekend. We got a great start on our summer bucket list with a day at the beach, ice cream and a good old fashioned water hose down at home. It’s safe to say that summer is here now. WooHoo! There’s plenty of warmth and sunshine to look forward to over the next 10 weeks, hopefully even longer.

Although I avoid the sun and slather myself in sunblock, I do want a little bit of color on my arms and legs. I aim for a sun kissed glow because it makes me feel better when I wear short sleeved shirts, skirts and shorts.

How to Style Denim Shorts

I’ve been seeing a lot of denim shorts, they made a come back last summer, and no wonder. They are adorable and can be dressed up with a pretty clutch and accessories! I love them with flats and heels and I have a new appreciation of how versatile and fun denim shorts can be. ZARA has a great selection of denim shorts in a few different lengths, with a cuff or without. And also distressed versions that are the perfect contrast to pair with something structured like a jacket. Below are some inspo images on how to style denim shorts this summer.
