Styling Shorts with Ageless Style

It's the third Thursday of the month and time for another ageless style challenge.  This month Leslie picked shorts and alternatives to shorts. 

 I tend to wear shorts a lot; I often pair them with flowy blouses and tops for a nice cool outfit to beat the summer heat. 

This first photo is from the only time I've worn shorts this year.. 


But here are some older photos from my archives:





If I'm not wearing shorts I am usually wearing gauzy jumpsuits






Or linen pants with a cute halter top


And on rare occasions I may even wear a dress. 


Basically I just love summer clothes!

  1. I have worn shorts every day since April 1 (the date of my surgery)! I could wear skirts or dresses and I have for occasions when out of the house, but I change back into shorts when I am home. Of course when my boot comes off, it will be crazy hot outside so I will want to wear pants only because I will be able to, lol. Enough of my yammering- your outfits are cute. I like that scalloped edge blue top. Also love linen anything- your pants are pretty and comfortable.

    1. I would have frozen if I had to wear short then! LOL. It is pretty warm this week so I've finally broken out the shorts these past couple of days.

  4. Such cute short outfits and alternatives. Would you believe I don't own a jumpsuit? I owned a jumpsuit short set once, but I didn't like the "bathroom issue" so I donated it.

    1. I think I easily own at least a dozen; I just LOVE them!

  5. The couple times I wore shorts this summer so far, I have regretted it with sticking to my car and sweating like crazy. Now if I was at the beach or the lake, it would be a different story. So I am wearing my flowy pants and maxis right now, which is good: everything needs a turn in my closet!

    1. Definitely! I find I am reaching more for dresses, skirts, flowy pants this summer than last summer when I think I wore shorts nearly every day.

  6. I've been wearing bermuda shorts this summer for the first time ever! They're comfortable and modest and, most importantly, cool in this Louisiana heat. I don't own a jumpsuit or romper, either, but they look really good on you, especially that blue polka dot one!

    1. I used to wear a lot of Bermuda shorts too but went to shorter shorts just a couple years ago-- not even really sure why but they are my new "go to" favorite length... for now. :)

  7. Looks great! I ha e a bad habit of buying black clothes so I do not look very summery haha

    1. I do that a lot in fall/winter but have been trying to add more color into my wardrobe-- especially in summer.

    1. It's still my favorite too! I wore it for Alec's senior awards night.

  10. I'm not sure why but I don't love shorts this summer! I got a few comfy ones but if I want to look nicer I have more skirts!

  14. Other than my summer obsession with dresses, I do love a linen pant, jumpsuit and skorts too.

    1. You and Jen nearly have me convinced to try some shorter dresses; all mine are maxi length.

  15. I'm like you. The more variety the better. And it's nice to have different options for different days.

  16. I can't believe you've only been able to wear shorts once this year. I wonder if our heat wave will make it to you. It's brutal! I love all the different looks, Joanne! I really like your blue maxi dress (or is it black)!

    1. We had a heatwave this week; it was triple digits yesterday but I still didn't end up wearing shorts because we made sure to stay in the air conditioning!

  17. I need some new summer tops! Your post has inspired me to do a little shopping! I love the silhouette of these!

  18. I love shorts except when it's really hot outside then I gravitate to dresses. All of your short outfits are so cute! Thanks for the inspo!

  19. Your outfits are all so cute and comfy-looking! I have been trying to pay more attention to what I wear even if I'm just hanging around the house. And I love dresses any time of year!

  20. I don't wear shorts as I am not confident about my legs, the closest I come is cropped leggings.
    You look great! I love the denim one's with the pink top and all of your jumpsuits.

  21. I love your fashion posts, you always look fab! I agree, summer clothes are the best! :)

  22. Hey cutie pie!! Guess what I had for breakfast?? Yogurt and fruit, sitting outside with a view of my pool rather than your beautiful lake view.
    Love your looks. You wear shorts so well and I hope you will continue to style and wear them for years to come. I need to try pairing my denim shorts with kimonos or flowy tops like you are doing here. I really like the way that looks and that would be a cooler option for our intenese summer heat.
    Your jumpsuits are sure cute, too. Love the first one. It 'reads' like a maxi dress. So flirty and fun.

    1. I had the same thing for breakfast and did get to eat outside overlooking the lake today! Thank you for your compliments on my outfits!
