On the platform: denim bermuda shorts, white plaid shirt, and a summer beanie

Hard to believe that I’d be wearing a button-down shirt (not to mention with sleeves!) on a hot summer’s day; yet here I am, dear readers!!

Truly, though…the whisper-thin, gauzy fabric of this particular shirt – another recent purchase from American Eagle Outfitters – makes it amazingly comfortable for torrid temperatures; you barely notice it against your skin!!  And I went with a size larger than I normally wear, as well; so that “strait-jacket” feeling I frequently get with collared shirts??  Totally a non-issue!!

The hot weather has had me staying away from my beloved jeans for the past few weeks, but I was willing to make an exception for this comfy pair of denim bermuda shorts; the combination with the plaid top was simply too cute to resist!!

And finishing things off??  My blue-floral beanie (it’s a cool cotton jersey, not wool!) and those “major” platform mules…plus a bright pop of orange, care of that slouchy suede bag!!  Yep…I think I’ve got this heat wave handled very nicely, thank you!!  😉

    I live in outfits just like this one. I turn all my old denims into shorts if they still fit on top. In the fall sometimes I even wear them with tights and boots.
    Love that shirt too. Lightweight cotton is the way to go!

      I'm sure you were the sub-conscious inspiration for this particular combination, dearest Joni!! And turning full-length denim into shorts is a terrific idea…it's just unfortunate that none of my old jeans fit me anymore!! XOXO

      Switch out the accessories…and my shorts-and-shirt ensemble would look completely different, dearest Kelsey and Kenecha!! But I've got to admit – I'm feeling the love with these shoes and the beanie!! 🙂
