My 7 Favorite Summertime Shorts

The 7 Best Summer Shorts with Bubby & Bean
1. Printed Bermuda Shorts, Zara  //  2. Denim Midi Shorts, Madewell  //  3. Broken In Boyfriend Chino Shorts, J.Crew  //  4. Tailored Shorts in Garden Vine, Madewell  //  5. Alice + Olive Print Cuff Shorts, Shopbop  //  6. Classic Red Denim Shorts, The Gap //  7. Lacy Denim Cutoffs, Free People

It's starting to get hot here in Chicagoland (bloggers talk about the weather/seasons an awful lot, don't we?), which means it's finally time to bust out the shorts.  Wooot!  Although I'm a dress person the majority of the time, I'm a sucker for a great pair of shorts.  I feel like they are the definitive summertime garment.  I mean, you can wear dresses and tops and skirts and pants any time of the year, but for the most part, shorts belong solely to this one season.  The shorts you see above are some of my current favorites - each has its own distinct style, but still screams summertime.

Do you wear shorts a lot this time of year?  What is your summertime garment of choice?

  1. I wish I could be wearing my shorts right now! Sadly, it's still early spring here in Paris - normally by this time of year we have beautifully sunny, warm weather, but this year, I've been in my jacket for most of the spring :( If I were wearing shorts, I'd definitely be in denim cutoffs like pair number 7 :)

  2. I have such a hard time with shorts! I am a dress person (like you!) and I always feel awkward in shorts. I feel like I can never find a pair that fit well. All of that aside, #4 and #7 are super cute.

  3. ooo Thanks for the list! I'm on a hunt for some cute summer shorts. I've been eyeing the madewell ones but wasn't sure.

  4. It's supposed to get up to 100 degrees here in northern Cali this Saturday. Hello, Summer! I like shorts #3 and #7 best, and a fave summer time piece of mine would be sandals (do shoes count?). =0)
    Happy Thursday,

  5. I'm pretty much a denim kind of gal. I have them in every style...short, bermuda, capri (are those shorts?).
    But I want to try a colorful pair like the teal ones you have featured above! I'm thinking I need some pink ones :)

  6. I love #s 1, 2, and 7! I love shorts in the summer too, with tanks and tees and sandals. I'm a casual kind of summer gal. =)

  7. Also, how does Madewell sizing run? Thinking about getting a pair now but have never ordered from them.

    1. I found this size chart for their pants and shorts:,2
      Hope that helps! xo, m

  8. Love the madewell garden vine shorts...not sure I could pull them off though...but maybe!

    Here in VanCity it's still too cold for shorts and likely will be for another month. Here's hoping its sooner rather than later!

  9. Love your site!
    Just added your button on my page! Hope that is okay :)

  10. Thanks for the comments everyone! Three cheers for summer clothes! xo, m
