Happy hump day, gals! And welcome back to day two of my collaboration with beautiful Susanne at Thompson Hill. We’re Styling Summer! So be sure to check out what Susanne has styled for today. But first, I’m sharing a classic summer look with white jean shorts.
First, let’s go ahead and address the elephant in the room. Yes, unfortunately this breezy chambray shirt is too large for me. I don’t know what possessed me to order the medium. Sometimes I just revert back to my old ways, I guess. But I’m returning it for the small. That’s how much I like this shirt otherwise.
I love the classic look of white denim and chambray. Add some leather accessories and a splash of leopard print and you’ve got an upscaled, casual summer look.
I’ve got the shirt tucked in only in the front. But you could also either tuck it in all around or leave it untucked, unbutton the bottom two buttons or so and tie it in the front.
Now let’s talk about these shorts. Score!
These white denim shorts fit oh so nicely TTS and feature a trending button up closure. They have a high rise and a 7″ rolled inseam or 9″ unrolled inseam. The fabric is a nice weight and has just the right amount of stretch. I’m linking these shorts to several different retailers in the widget, but Dillard’s has the best price and size selection. And remember, you can order online with Dillard’s and pick up at the store for no shipping cost.
I kept my accessories simple with gold jewelry (links in the shopping widget) and just a touch of animal print in my belt. Then I added my favorite leather tote and leather slides for a casual but classic summer look.
You could just as easily mix up the accessories a little by wearing these leopard print slides (or other animal print shoes) and wearing a leather belt instead. Or keep the leopard print belt and wear these platform slides in metallic jute. You have so many options when you marry classic pieces like these white denim shorts and chambray top. And I just love this classic summer look.
And that’s the beauty of building a wardrobe of classic essentials like this chambray shirt and white denim shorts. It’s versatile and chic without a lot of fuss or muss.

Blessed for My Day
I remember many, many years ago hunting desperately through a department store for my preschool daughter. She was a sly one! And she had removed herself from the safety of her stroller and wandered off while her older brother stayed obediently close by. I finally found her in the handbag department, hiding quietly underneath a large table that was draped with a full length cloth. I wanted to wear out her little hiney! But I enveloped her in my arms instead.
Abigail was just a small, innocent child when I had to go hunting for her. But my Father has had to hunt me down many times, even in my adult years. I’m so grateful that He loves me enough to pursue me. And my bet is that He has sought you and brought you back into His loving arms before, too. Let’s be oh so thankful today for a God who seeks His lost sheep…and never loses a single one.
I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek your servant,
for I do not forget your commandments. ~ Psalm 119:176
