Feelin’ a bit hot and steamy?!
The heat is definitely turned on high in Cleveland and after spending a grand total of 15 minutes outside this morning all I want is a cold shower, a blast of air conditioning and the least amount of clothing as publicly appropriate.
When your go to jeans just won’t cut it, what’s a girl to wear?!
Yes, my friends… it’s time to break out the shorts.
In all honestly, I think I may own only 5 pairs of shorts, including my go to DENIM CUTOFFS. Personally, I’ve always gravitated to easy summer dresses over shorts, but with my currently lifestyle and schedule, a pair of shorts often seems like the more practical choice. As I’ve learned the hard way — kids, playgrounds and constant hauling of bikes, toys and groceries don’t quite mix with skirts.
(My sincerest apologies to all those who I’ve flashed over the last 5 years…)
All that being said, I’ve been seeing more and more dress short options that give me that more refined look I love, even on the hottest days and nights.

From pleated to flowy, long Bermuda style to short scallop hem, there is a pair of shorts out there flattering to anyone. For day, pair your shorts with easy flat sandals or sneakers, and for night throw on a pair of heels or wedges to dress up the same look. Don’t forget about those MATCHING SETS you know I love — they’re an easy, less-fussy alternative to a traditional summer dress.
