Casual Sweater + Denim Shorts

madewell shaker sweater

Sweater// Denim Shorts (old, love this pair)

It's been quite hot here.. which is so not my thing. I love the fall.. 65-70 degrees is right where I like it. This whole 90+ degrees... not so much. The worst is when it is 90, and I leave work and have to get into my car... I actually dread that moment.

I've been reaching a lot for denim shorts lately. They're super simple and casual and great for running weekend errands. I've had these shorts since I was a sophomore in college... they're the only pair of jean shorts I own. I'm really eyeing this pair, but I honestly think one pair is enough! 

I think the key to denim shorts is to never try and dress them up. They are super casual and I think where a lot of people go wrong with denim shorts, making them look tacky, is when you try to dress them up. I embrace the casual-ness of denim shorts and love to pair them with sneakers, cotton tanks, oversized sweaters, etc. 

I wore this last weekend while running some errands. Since I am in and out of places, I always make sure to have a sweater on hand because sometimes the air conditioning can be ridiculous, ahem, I'm looking at you, Fresh Market. This one is great because it is neutral and lightweight, so I'll even leave it in my car so I have it whenever I need it. It's on sale right now for under $50... a really good price for the quality. I think it'll look great with skinny jeans and boots come fall, too. Have a fabulous day!

I'm definitely with you on the cooler weather. Fall and Winter are definitely my favorite seasons. Those denim shorts are cute and you're right - who needs more than one pair?

I love this look, Sydney! Even though it's not dressed up, I still think it's put together. I would go out for lunch with girlfriends in this outfit.
