summer plaid

((A New Approach top; Express shorts; F21 sunglasses; Fossil watch; DIY bracelet; Steve Madden sandals))

Do you ever feel that a particular item in your closet delivers considerably more than just returning your money’s worth? These cuffed denim shorts have been a staple in my wardrobe since I purchased them for 70% off three years ago. The dark wash and mid-thigh length (I’m not really a Daisy Duke kind of girl) makes them perfectly versatile for the season. I wore them last night, which turned out to be one of those rare summer evenings in D.C. that’s blessedly devoid of humidity with a light breeze–perfect for grilling out or taking a walk at dusk. Maybe it’s the association with camping or picnic blankets, but plaid always seems well-suited for an outdoor evening this time of year, and blues and taupes are much better on me than checkered red and white.
