Happy First Day of Summer! If you’re from an area anywhere like where I was born and raised, you’ll understand that summer is ALL about time spent at the pool. Swim Team is the deal of the summer and countless hours are spent surrounded around it. Practices, meets, playtime…. doesn’t matter if you’re a mama, nanny, auntie, Grandma… you find yourself at a country club or community pool more times than you can count from now through August.
Because I fall under the ‘Auntie’ and ‘Nanny’ categories, I know the pool scene all too well. And though it may sound glamorous, you’re often more of a
sheep children herder than you are a lady laying out poolside. So no, you’re not enjoying the water aka in your bikini (or fab new one piece 😉 ) for the day. However, I often find myself wanting to wear something that could go over a swim suit if needed, but could transition to an easy summer day outfit with little fuss. Meaning, it could get wet and not look too terrible, but you could also dress it up a bit and not feel like you’re in workout clothes, even though you want to feel that comfy. So with that list of demands, I give you the miraculous chambray short trend. Elastic drawstring waist. Flowy so nothing is tight and creating bulges. Easy to pair with sandals or dress up with wedges. Miraculous, indeed! And let’s be real, I had you at elastic waist, did I not?
So easy and so dang comfortable, ladies! These shorts are a huge WIN in my book. Paired with my other casual summer attire essentials, like my favorite Toss Grab Bag tote, which is perfect for towels, sunscreen, caps, goggles, etc…. you’re set. And if you’re not a Swim Team go-er, I can guarantee this look is still perfect for family summer vacations, beach trips, a cookout with friends….
Whatever way you ‘summer’, I think you need this look in your life.
