Now that the temperature is starting to drop, I’m holding on tightly to my favorite summer pieces for as long as I can. As I have mentioned before, I feel a deep love for shorts. This summer, I wore them virtually all the time and only gave them a rest when I suffered many mosquito bites that were pure torture [these clever mosquitos sense how sweet I am 😉 ]. My favorite way to style them is with a shirt and, if the weather allows it, a blazer. These shorts are my first pair in denim that I’ve owned in a long time, and now I can’t stop creating new outfits with them! The shirt I’m wearing is my favorite at the moment because of its white neckline and cuffs (you can get a better look in this older post). The blazer is a purchase from last year. I was really excited when I found it because it was on sale and the quality is fabulous (who doesn’t love a great piece at a low price?). I hope you like this outfit.

Thank you very much for stopping by!

Have a nice weekend!

    I wish I could pull outfits off like this where I’m from! I live in the south, so if I wore something like this everyone would look at me like I was crazy! Haha. I absolutely love it though, and you look stunning!

    What a cute look, I don’t wear shorts a lot, once in a while in certain circumstance. I can’t wear them to work, and here in NY where you take transportation everywhere I just don’t feel comfortable wearing short shorts, If I was in a car a lot I would probably wear them more often.

    Dear Danielle,
    what a beautiful combination of elegant and casual pieces.
    I like destroyed jeans very much and your small bag is so cute! I am really obsessed of those small cute bags.
    Unfortunately in Germany it is already cold and I have to wear my long trousers or tights. I can’t wait for next summer time, because I love summer that much as you do.
    Have a beautiful and happy weekend :-*
