I was off jean shorts for a while. They always seemed to be really short, and really tight, and really unflattering…dare I say trashy? However, I'm totally jumping on the bandwagon this summer with the new denim trend...

They look effortlessly cool and insanely comfortable. Above, they pair perfectly with red, white and blue. This shirt would be perfect for a casual Saturday around town.

I also love the way it looks with crisp navy or black and white. It replaces the skinny jean for a more laid back look, and is an unexpected choice with a ladylike bag (I love this one).

Or pair it with pretty florals (either on your shirt or in your bag). And of course you know I love a white button-down with jeans.
