This weekend was absolutely wonderful! It was also humid, very busy and rainy, but nonetheless it was wonderful. I spent most of the days with family, which is always a great thing. Knowing that I was going to be busy I decided to wear shorts and a lightweight tunic on Saturday. Hubby and I joined my family at the River Hill 4th of July Parade. My little sister rode in the parade while representing her title, Miss American Teenager, Preteen. It was a lot of fun and she, of course, had a ball riding in a drop top white mustang. 😉
Wearing shorts is something I haven’t always been a fan of. But over the past few years, I have embraced my body and shape and wearing shorts has been part of that journey. Regardless of your size, shorts during the summer months is a must. As long as their appropriate and fit nicely, I say go for it!
Speaking of wearing shorts, my favorite linkup from last week was Cheryl of Oh to Be a Muse. I love Cheryl’s easy breezy outfit, and not to mention her hair! She always styles herself perfectly, head to toe, regardless of the season. She’s true to her personal style and looks great in these Zara shorts!
So tell me, are you a fan of wearing shorts during the summer months? Let me know!

What a great way to incorporate the holiday theme into your outfit! I have to admit I’m not much of a fan of shorts myself, but I think that’s because I haven’t found a pair that are really flattering on my body. I’m totally in love with Cheryl’s look – now those shorts are amazing!

You look cute and casual, nice 4th of July outfit! Loves the tunic. I’m def a fan of shorts in the summer, bc it’s sooo hot! The rain and humidity weren’t my friends at all this past weekend, due to the fact that I had gotten my hair done! #fail, lol

I love wearing shorts in the summer. Unfortunately, I’ve had a type of dermatitis start over the past several years that leaves my legs looking as though they have been burned. I hate it, but nothing I have tried lessens the appearance, so I’ve resorted to maxi dresses during the summer which I absolutely love! I can be comfortable without any constriction and still look put together!
