Summer Shorts (and maybe a few tops, too)
Updated: Jun 1, 2019
We have usually hit 100 degrees by this time in Vegas but we are seriously having record braking low temps for this time of year, which is a pleasant 60-70 degrees most days. However, we know summer is coming in and it most definitely will come in HOT!
What could possibly be our favorite summer staples? Shorts and tees (for two, LOL), of course. We would love to share with you some of our favs; plus, many of these are on sale right now which means stock up time!
These Abercrombie shorts are, quite simply, the perfect summer denim short! Sizes are in slim supply for the wash we have but there are so many washes to chose from affording you the opportunity to grab at least one pair or two or three. Oh, did we mention that right now they are $29? Hand clap emoji here!!! We think these are true to size but if in between we advise sizing up since these shorts are a rigid 100% cotton. We have two since they are so amazing that we bought in 2 different sizes: one for those days you want your shorts high and tight and one for those days you want loose and comfy. This top is almost sold out but if you can grab it in your size, ruuuuuuun! It is really that good and TTS.
These pull-on shorts come in four different colors and have one of the most important things your wardrobe demands: POCKETS! We have these in our cart right now because these are also $29. Then there is these paperbag waist ones also on sale...add to cart, please!
Talk about amazing shorts, these high-rise ones from Madewell are denim perfection! Button fly, just the right amount of stretch and shall we talk magic pockets? Currently available in all sizes! We had to share these just in case your size is still in stock because these pull-on shorts in rainbow stripe are the short you will want to wear on the hottest of summer days. If rainbow and paperbag waist is your thing then you may want to check out these beauties that are on sale, oh yes please! Oh my, check out these in rainbow and on sale. If you are wondering what to wear with your Madewell shorts, we highly recommend the Madewell whisper cotton v-neck pocket tank in all the colors (or the tee that is just as fabulous in all the colors). Some colors are on sale including our pink tank and our 'burnt clay' tee. Also on sale for a price we can't believe is this wrap top that we have in ivory and absolutely adore. Through June 3rd use code ENJOY20 for an extra 20% off markdowns!!! We found all our summer Madewell finds TTS.
If you are in the mood for a more sporty short look no further than lululemon. We know, we know, you are completely surprised by this HA HA! Emily's favorite shorts of all time just might be these Hotty Hot Shorts in black. However, the camo ones are giving us all the feels! Oh, and high rise Hotty Hot Shorts? Who knew!!! Hitting up an amusement park or two this summer? We highly recommend the Spring Break Away Short as they have been put to the test during a 3 day stint at Disney last summer and are going in our suitcase for Universal Studios this summer! Lastly, these classic speed shorts in black can go to the gym, the amusement park, the beach and everywhere.
Rounding out some of our favorite summer shorts are these tomgirl shorts from American Eagle (we sized up for a looser fit). Online sales at AE vary from the store so keep your eyes peeled for the best deal! These Mudd high-rise black denim shorts from Kohl's are so good we can't believe it! Always check back at Kohl's for sales if you don't find them marked down the first time you look. Right now they are $22! If you love a white short in the summer Levi's has a destructed one that we wear on rotation from Macy's. If between sizes, size up. Forever 21's paperbag waist shorts are really, really good and these gingham ones are our favorites this summer. Oh, but what about these that fill our need for stripes? Looking for some tube tops to wear with all your high rise shorts? We think these Wild Fable ones from Target are pretty great. Thick enough to cover what needs to be covered and will stay put even when jumping for joy! One last thing, Target has these tops priced from $5-$7 so you can totally stock up for summer!!!
Happy summer shopping!
