Summer is in full swing and boy is it HOT out there! I’m loving simple linen shorts like these for keeping cool and comfortable. They are a great alternative to denim shorts – if those aren’t your thing, or if you just need a break from them – and the combo drawstring/elastic waist is super comfortable for everyday wear. I went down a size in these shorts and find that worked perfectly for me. They are available in lots of colors. I love this army green since it’s a nice neutral, but be sure to check out all the other great colors too. Let’s take a look at the six ways I styled them!

A chambray shirt is a simple and classic staple. It works perfectly with these linen shorts and Birkenstocks for everyday mom wear.

I love the green shorts with black. Here I paired a simple tank and denim jacket for a perfect summer look. I always like to have a denim jacket on hand for too cold AC.

These shorts work well with feminine details like this eyelet sleeve tank. It’s a perfect combo for super hot days.

Sneakers work really well with these shorts too. With a lightweight sweater it’s perfect for around the house or running summer errands. *also! puppy alert! He couldn’t resist a little cameo.
