Summer casual dressing is always a challenge for me. I live in the near-tropics, and we have many months of 90-degree weather. So jeans, my favorite casual items, are often not wearable. And shorts — well, I don’t feel happy in them except for workouts, gardening, and brushing the cats.
Until I rediscovered slim, knee-length shorts. Call me crazy, but I find these so flattering, comfortable and versatile. I wear these on my days off to shop, go to lunch, movies, and the bookstore. They look good to my eyes with a simple tee, tucked in and belted. I also dress them up with a print blouse/tunic. And the shoe options are fun too: from sandals, sneakers and espadrilles to wedges and even shooties.

I like them very slim at the knee, with no embellishments, cuffs, print, etc. How do you like your shorts, if you wear them? Or are you strictly a sundress, summer-skirt kind of woman?
Have a wonderful day, and don’t forget, Monday, April 30th is Visible Monday! Everyone is welcome to participate!
