Is it just me, or does shorts season feel super boring? Somehow when I reach for a pair of shorts the outfit-making part of my brain stops. All I can think is to add a t-shirt. Here are some slightly-styled shorts outfits I’ve made lately to keep it interesting!
Twisty top and sandals
I really love pleated shorts right now (as you’re about to see, haha). I think they look best with a “delicate” sandal that isn’t chunky. It balances them out. I wore this with my most recent sewing project top!

Pop of color
I love black and white anything! Lately I’ve been trying to add an unexpected or “weird” color into my black and white outfits. These olive green/or are they kinda yellow flats fit the bill.
The year is 2001 and I’m listening to Now 6 after going to the CD store with my dad. Life is good.
Add a twist to your tee
I made a video of this trick but you know how we used to tie our tees with a hair tie? Do that, but do it on the inside of the shirt, and you’ll have this look!
Add a fun neckline
I know, broken record over here, but if I’m gonna wear shorts and a tank top all summer I’m trying to make it fun? I love the neckline on this tank for that very reason! Also, still wearing the heck out of my plastic-y Birks…do I need a second pair?
