For daytime: spice up your easy silk shorts with a loose tank or tee and a comfortable pair of sandals. This outfit is perfect for hitting up the farmers market, grabbing a coffee with a girlfriend or even for a day trip.
The change up: swap your footwear for something more feminine like a pair of your favourite sandaled heels. Consider holding onto your cross-body bag and wearing it over your shoulder.
For evening: With cool summer nights be sure to add a layer. A knit blazer is the perfect combination of comfort, warmth and added structure. Consider also throwing in a piece of jewelry, like a statement necklace or chunky bracelet, to add to your outfit.

For so many summers I somehow managed to avoid shorts. It’s true! Between working during the day and turning to skirts, dresses, and pants for the most part I was able to last a summer with a mere 2 pairs of shorts! Please tell me I’m not alone here! So this summer I decided to make a change and invest in a few pairs of shorts, especially during the recent (and ongoing) summer sales. Enter these easy-to-wear silk shorts. Not only do I love the lightweight, no wrinkle quality to them, I also love how they seem to work for numerous outings. As photographed here, I’m a big fan of wearing them with a simple tank and flat sandals during the day and simply throwing on a blazer or sweater with heels or wedged for the evening. I’ve also even worn them to the beach! The perfect summer travelling companion indeed!
