Summer Denim Shorts Guide

Denim shorts season is upon us.  At least here in Nashville it is.  In Ohio, not so much.  Man, am I glad we’re down South!

Back to denim shorts…  I wear them basically every single day during the winter months, so finding pairs that I love and that are super comfy are of the utmost importance to me.

This past week, I received a pair in that I ordered from Target and tried them on in Stories.  I caught them on sale for $12, but they’re normally $18.  Here’s what they look like on…

They are in my top three pairs in my closet because they are so stretchy.  They fit TTS and are such a bargain!

Next up, is my newest favorite pair of shorts.  I’ve been eyeing these shorts for two years, but never pulled the trigger before now because of the price.  I finally threw in the towel and ordered them…  Now, I understand what all the hype is about!  They fit like a dream.  They are the most flattering pair of shorts in my closet.  I ordered my normal size: 26 and they fit perfectly.  This isn’t the best photo, but you get the idea…

The pair below are another fave of mine because of the high waist fit.  They fit TTS and have decent stretch.  The rolled hem can be frustrating, but I have a hack that I’ll be sharing soon in a YouTube video.

I ordered two new pairs from Abercrombie that are now on sale.  They haven’t arrived yet, but here’s a round-up of all of the shorts I’m currently loving.  All but one pair are currently on sale!

    Denim shorts are seriously timeless! We’ve had a great week of 85 degree weather 😍 so happy to hang up my rain coat. Atleast for a month or two! 🤣

    Love this!! I have had trouble finding shorts that I love over the past few years and feel like I’m constantly buying new ones. I have longer legs and am no longer that age where I want those super short shorts haha. Love the super cute recommendations and will definitely be giving them a try! 🙂

    I love denim shorts but until I am back in shape and toned up I am not wearing any shorts in public. Thank you for posting this. I can wear them around my house

      How are you planning to get toned up? I’ve been looking for a good program/workout to do the same thing.

    Crazy how our fashion taste changes as we get older. I used to only buy short, tight jean shorts. Now like you, I’m all about stretchy and comfort.

    It’s getting warmer where I’m from so these will really come in handy and the high wasted ones are so cute.

    I can’t wait for warmer weather here in Indiana. I am definitely going to be ordering the target shorts.

      Love those Target shorts! I bought a pair (a bit longer) for my mom and she loves them!

    Love me some shorts! I cannot wait until the weather improves here and we can start wearing them. I have some cute EV1 shorts I love as well. Super soft and super comfy

    I have such a hard time finding denim shorts that fit well! I have such small legs they are usually super loose. I love the pair you have on from Target!! I will need to try them out!
