COVETING: Milly Dickies Shorts
I hate to sound like a broken record, but summer just gets so HOT. Thus, I'm always on the hunt for fun, classy-looking shorts with details that make them special. This little Milly pair is perfect. The chevron stripes are a fabulous print, and the inseam is just the right length -- it allows for major versatility, meaning that these shorts can be worn with a pair of flat sandals for day or paired with heels and a sheer button-down for evening.
I'm all about low-maintenance beauty in the summer -- because, honestly, who has the time (or the patience) to put a lot of effort into looking fantastic when it's a million degrees outside, super humid, and your perfectly-straightened hair is going to frizz the second you step outside anyhow? And hairstyles just don't get much more warm-weather-appropriate than undone beachy waves. They're not SUPPOSED to be perfect, making them the ideal, relaxed look for summer. Though I've never quite mastered this style (I blame the freshwater environment in which I grew up), I'm determined to do so this year so that I can be as low-key pretty as my inspiration.
