Blouse - H&M (recent), Cardigan - J.Crew, Denim shorts - American Eagle, Cognac flats - Shoemint, Watch - Michael Kors (similar) 


This was the first time this season wearing my denim boyfriend shorts from American Eagle. I own two pairs and literally have worn them to death for the past two Summers. Need proof? (One, two,) I thought I had more than just two posts featuring them, but I guess not! Well I promise I wear them all the time. Longer shorts or midi shorts are great for casual weekends and lazy days. I personally love the way Laura wears hers (here & here). She has been inspiring me to wear shorts with unexpected pieces.  Dress them up with a blouse, blazer, and cardi. Dress them down with a flowy boho tank and sandals. Voila! Instant Summer :)

  1. I have 2 pairs of denim shorts that I also wore to death last summer, so I definitely need a new pair! I'm trying to incorporate some bright shorts into the mix this summer too. You look great, I love the whole look.

  7. Love the outfit, must hunt down that H&M top. I am also inspired to decorate the collars of existing shirts, perhaps with sequins!

  8. I was going to say that I don't remember ever seeing you in shorts...but then I saw the proof lol. Love the way you wore them here, so chic (and in the past too).

  9. Thank you for your comments <3 I love the metallic gold lace on the H&M blouse. I just got it a couple weeks ago, so I'm pretty sure you'll be able to find it in your store. I also love my new cardigan from J.Crew. It's such a vibrant color in person! And the flats? I'm so thrilled I finally found a pair in cognac. I know I'll be living in them.

  10. I am still trying to find the "perfect" summer short since I feel too old to wear the short shorts of my past but don't want to go the whole bermuda style. These look like a really good length and I love how you styled them, Noelle!
