How to style denim shorts in the summer (it’s all about proportions!)

Even though I’m still enjoying the cool breezes of Carmel, let’s go back to the hot OKC summer…

Trying to look stylish in the summer is just SO hard sometimes.  While I love dresses (and wear them almost all of the time) I also want to switch it up once in a while.  So it’s when I bring out the denim shorts.  And I must say even though you might want to just throw on a tank top and shorts don’t.  While that’s perfectly fine for working out, it’s not for going out.  So here’s the little secret about dressing in the summer.  Or really anytime… 


Like many things, fashion is simply proportions.  So basically if you’re going to wear shorts, pair them with a breezy top like I did in this post.  Or if you’re going to wear jeans, go ahead and wear a tank top or cami.  (I loving this one!  And did you see the one I wore yesterday?)   It’s a little trick you that will keep you always looking fashionable.

And about today’s outfit — not only does this top has the most amazing shoulder details, it also happens to be reversible!   Wear it with the two-button closure open in the front, or turn it around and button it up to create a little keyhole detail.  It comes in 4 colors and since I’m on a yellow kick lately (remember this dress) I went with this sunny shade.  But the white one was definitely my second choice!  What do you think of it?
