6 Summer Outfits

Let it Rain

{H&M sweater, J Brand shorts, Hunter boots, Michael Kors watch, Target bracelets} 

The weather lately has gone from sun shining to full on rain and thunder storms in the matter of minutes.  I’ve been turning to my trusty rain boots (or at least keeping them nearby) for when I get caught in a torrential downpour!  

I’ve had a lot of emails lately from readers asking about buying jean shorts and tips for getting the right fit.  Since I wear them so often, here’s my secret: buy 1 size bigger than your normal jean size.  Jean shorts are supposed to be comfy and they will shrink in the wash, so you can always use the little extra room.  Happy shopping!

    Your legs look fantastic! I’m hoping my current shorts last me through the rest of the summer. They are all so well worn (loved?) that they are starting to fall apart 🙁

    This outfit is adorable. I think it’s great advice to buy a size up with jean shorts. The fit is always a little better!
