It is officially, unofficially here now!
That’s what Memorial Day means, right?
The start of summer –the pool opens, the warm starts, the clothing switches and you can wear white without your mom tsking at you.
I thought it was never going to hit Maryland. Our entire spring was awash in rain and coldness and then, like Mother Nature was waiting for a three day weekend to premier her best work, the clouds moved out, the sun showed up, and Memorial Day was spectacular.
We’ve been smothered in sun and warmness ever since.
Never complaining about a sun shiny day.
To celebrate all of this sun shiny awesome, I’ve teamed up with some of my fave fashionista moms to share 6 ways to wear shorts like a grown up in summer…
Yours truly is rocking my summer wardrobe from Chadwicks of Boston.
I know, no white in sight, but you know what?
I look better in black and, until the heat reaches the breath snatch level I know is coming and I am forced to walk around in a muumuu with a spritz bottle to stay alive, I intend to wear what flatters.
Now let me tell you about these Boho Beach Shorts.
First, I don’t even know what boho really means and when I picked these, I honestly thought I’d be meh about them.
Figured I’d be a little on the dumpy side for them. And that I’d struggle to find a top. And that my thighs would devour them when I walked.
I. LOVE. THEM.
They are so comfy and almost like a skirt and they work perfectly with all kinds of tops and all kinds of shoes. And my thighs! My thighs loooove them!
And I don’t mean eat-them-while-I-walk love them, I mean they lay perfectly without any crotch bunch action and my thighs are left to just be love them.
So, so perfect for summer days at the park and evenings at, um, I don’t know, wherever you people who leave your houses at night time go.
Not bad for under $30.
