Short Story

The heatwave is finally giving us a little relief, but I am still in full blown "stay as cool as possible" mode. What have I turned to lately? I am loving shorts. And I am loving the way these ladies styled them. They step it up a notch with heels or booties, a touch of glam jewelry...and look effortlessly put together. 






I had a day trip to Raleigh yesterday and picked up a few pairs of these J.Crew Shorts, {on sale!} in navy and maroon. I think they will work well for casual looks going into fall when it is still as hot as it can be. Might even pair them with booties...stepping out of the box a little bit!


What are your tips for looking stylish in the heat of the summer?
xoxo.
