Summer Chambray & Lace

So we're now at that point in the summer where the heat is becoming quite annoying. At least for me that is! I prefer to wear pants so anytime the weather is too warm and I'm forced to wear shorts, I am pushed outside of my comfort zone. These shorts however, don't make me feel as uncomfortable since they are not form-fitting. The shorts are LC Lauren Conrad from Kohl's and I snagged them a few years ago. Aside from the fact that they look cute with just about anything, they also feel amazing. Since the shorts are a few years old, I've linked some similar options for you. Another great thing about lace shorts, they can be dressed up or down. Looking for a casual look? Pair with a comfortable top (like my chambray photographed below) and add a simple sandal. If you're looking to dress it up, add a fun wedge or scrappy heel. You can also add a fun statement necklace too, since the chambray is so simple. 

Since we're on the topic of chambray's, it's about time that I tell you why they are so important. A denim top, or a "chambray" goes with just about anything and everything. Seriously. Pair it with any color of denim, I repeat: ANY COLOR. It literally looks good with everything. And just like lace, it can be dressed up or down. Since it's summer, I'll stick to some summer time tips for styling a chambray. Now depending on the weather, you may see me in a long sleeve chambray or if it's hot, I'll be wearing my tank chambray from LOFT. The LOFT chambray can be worn with jeans, or shorts. And by now you get what I'm saying because both of these items offer so many options. The styling opportunities are endless. And we're not even on to accessories. And accessories can completely change the entire look of an outfit. (Always remember that!)

So if you don't have a good chambray or lace shorts, I suggest you check out some of the links below. And with summer winding down, you can probably snag the lace shorts for a steal! And seriously, a chambray is literally a staple to my wardrobe. Don't just take my word for it though, snag one and test it out for yourself. You will be pleasantly surprised when you discover the many ways to style a chambray.
