I just realized it is the first week of August and I have yet to show you a summer shorts outfit other than what I wore on my Myrtle Beach vacation. The main reason is that other than around the house, I haven't worn shorts this season. If I went out, and it was hot, I chose a skirt. But it's been a relatively cool summer, so I actually wore pants a lot.
The funny thing about this outfit is that when I asked my husband to photograph me he was perplexed. He said "Really? There's nothing very special about it. It's just a T-Shirt and Shorts." I replied "That's exactly why I want you to photograph me. My fashion posts are about what I wore...and this is what I wore shopping and out to lunch on a very hot day."
Everything I am wearing is old except the t-shirt and choker. The t-shirt I picked up at a tourist shop in Myrtle Beach for $3.99. I originally bought it to just wear around the house or in the garden as it is a nice, thin tee which is my usual preference for summer tees to do housework. But I ended up really liking the print and the fit, so I changed my mind about that and I wear it outside the house as well.
I love the color, the design, the V-neck, and the nice long length. When choosing a tee to wear with shorts, these are important details to look for. Crew necks never look good on me, so I avoid buying those tees if I can.
I added a black and silver choker from Forever 21. I like to wear my chokers a little lower down on the neck. Adding jewelry, carrying a cute bag, and wearing eye catching shoes do a lot to dress up a tee shirt and shorts outfit.
My Carlos Santana Sandals I bought last year always catch someone's eye overtime I wear them. They are so super comfortable too!
I wore a silver bracelet to coordinate with the silver beads in the jewelry and I carried a silver cross body bag.
So what do you think? Do you agree with my husband that there is nothing "blog-worthy" about this outfit or do you like to see everyday outfits on my blog? I'd love to hear from you!
On Monday I'm going to do a very special fashion post called "Grandma and Me". I've seen so many "Mommy and Me" fashion posts, but never ones for grandmothers or even older moms. So I'm going to TRY and do a link up. I say that because I've never done a link up before and I'm not quite sure how to do it. 🤣 I will have to figure that out, and hopefully I can! All Grandmother related posts will be welcome...it doesn't have to be fashion related. The posts can be old or new. So if you know any grandmothers out there, get the word out, or if you have a post to share yourself, I'd love to see it!
Have a Great Day! Amy
