Happy Tuesday babes!! How is everyone’s week going so far? Ours started out with a HUGE milestone yesterday….Charlie lost his first tooth!!! Y’all I cannot even believe that my first baby is big enough to be loosing his teeth (insert a million crying emojis)!! Thank goodness for baby Sam otherwise I would be a total emotional wreck over Charlie loosing his first tooth and starting kindergarten.

Okay so I know that fall is officially right around the corner, and everyone is pulling out their cardigans and boots…but it is still 100 degrees out here in Dallas AND we still do have a month left of summer. So today I’m sharing this look that I have been wearing all season long. I first got these Alice + Olivia ‘Caddy’ shorts in navy a few years ago when I was down on the floor playing with Charlie a lot. I needed something other than denim shorts (which are so casual) and skirts (which were not very practical for being down on the floor with a little one). I wore them so much that I wanted to get them in some other colors, so this year I got them in both black and white. One thing in particular that I absolutely love about these shorts is that the stretch cotton fabric is comfortable enough for chasing kiddos and for daytime outfits, yet these shorts are tailored and sleek enough for wearing at night too. And the wide waistband is super flattering.

I wore this exact outfit for a day of lunch and shopping with my mom (with baby Sam in tow) and I wore it for a date night with Jordan. The shorts I wear on repeat with a basic tee and flip flops or with a fun statement piece like this ruffle top. These literally are the one pair of shorts you need for wearing from day to night. And speaking of this ruffle top, it is so fun and fab!! It comes in three colors (black, white and coral) and can be worn off the shoulder (like I did) or up on the shoulder. I love it with skirts and jeans (perfect for fall) too.

I’m excited to pair these pieces for transitioning into fall. The top will be cute with jeans and boots. And the shorts can still be worn with long sleeve statement tops (hello bell sleeve tops like this one) or even with sweaters.

I hope you all have a fabulous week!!

Xo, Deanie
