Tailored Shorts

Even in the heat of a Midwest summer, I still prefer polish to being “comfortable”. There are two things I use to my summer looks easy and effortless while looking put together: breezy blouses and tailored shorts. They both can survive even the hottest of days while keeping my typical style in tact.

You may have noticed that 90% of my shorts I wear are high waisted. Call it a day dream or call it aging, but super low waisted shorts come off looking very immature most of the time in my opinion. The high-waisted pairs that have a great fit and an elevated material have almost a nostalgic feel to them, which I adore. These were just $40 and come in other colors.

Even in my well paired down capsule closet, I make room for an arsenal of basic blouses. I have at least 10 different ones, with different necklines, fits and details. This $20 one is one of my most-worn due to its skimming fit and easy to tuck silhouette.

Wearing an Everly Ring stack. Shown stacked from left to right: The Honor, The Verona (yellow), The Delta and The Havana.
