Summer Chic in Shorts

Hi everyone and happy Thursday!

Top: Nordstrom - old (similar here and here) // Shorts: Nordstrom Rack (only $20!!) //       Purse: Betsey Johnson (similar here and here, also LOVE this one) // Shoes: Sam Edelman // Sunglasses: RayBan // Necklaces:  House of Harlow and Kate Spade

I don't know how the weather has been where you all are, but here in North Carolina the days have been beyond hot recently!  Which basically limits my wardrobe choices to dresses and shorts if I am planning to spend anytime outside.  Overall, I am totally fine with that because I am a HUGE lover of dresses and shorts since they are both so comfy.  However, when it comes to shorts normally you have to go with a casual look if you want to wear shorts.  I had been struggling recently to put together a look that was 'chic' but yet wasn't going to leave me absolutely sweating in this summer heat!  That's why I was so excited to find these amazing shorts for super cheap!

These shorts honestly might be my favorite that I own because they are incredibly flattering, super comfortable and so chic!  I have already worn this outfit a couple times because it has been the absolute perfect look for a night out, and even the evenings have been super hot recently in NC!  Since these shorts themselves do already have a more chic vibe, I wanted to keep this look consistent so I paired it with a white tank and grabbed my favorite Betsey Johnson purse.  On that note - how cute is this Betsey Johnson purse?  It combined one of my favorite classic styles - stripes with a tassel! Perfection!

Hope you guys enjoy this look and I would love to hear your ideas to still achieve a chic look during the hot summer days!
