Silky sateen shorts for summer? I’ve always seen silky shorts as a winter thing. If someone mentioned silky shorts I instantly thought of New Years Eve or a spunky Christmas party look. Wearing them in the summer never crossed my mind. That is until, I spotted this pair at Loft a few weeks ago. I think I might has actually squealed when I saw them. They’re SO pretty!! I already had this stripe top in hand and instantly thought of pairing them together. A combination I would have NEVER thought of previously. Again, silky shorts in the summertime was never something I had previously thought about. I wasn’t really sure if I’d love them together but once I had the two items on in the fitting room, I was sold. Silky sateen shorts could totally be worn in the summertime!

To keep the look casual, I added my favorite basket bag {last seen here} and go to gingham slides {last seen here}. I loved the way these items brought down the dressy factor of the shorts. I also feel they could be switched out for wedges and clutchclutch to easily take this look from day to night. Tell me these shorts wouldn’t totally switch up your usual summer date night look? 

These shorts will be back soon for a fun festive inspired look. Stay tuned! 

P.S. Lily Pad Haven, a Charlotte-run non-profit that provides emergent and transitional housing for victims of human trafficking will be hosting a fundraiser at the Kendra Scott store in SouthPark Mall on Saturday, May 13th from 5:00-8:00 p.m. During this time, a portion of all sales will be donated to the Lily Pad Haven efforts.

    This is such a gorgeously classic ensemble. From the cute & retro tie top to those beautiful sateen shorts, down to the slides and even the bag. I love it all! You look totally ready for a summer picnic date!
