Tie Front Shorts and the Best Linen Cami

How to style high waisted shorts #tiefrontshorts

Hi friends! I'm excited to share today's outfit with you for two reasons.  First, because it's finally warm enough (here in New England) to wear shorts, and second, because it includes two of my favorite summer trends: high waist shorts and button detailing.

I've been all about the high waist (and tie front) shorts trend.  You all know I love a good pair of high waist bottoms, and I couldn't be happier with the fit of these stripe shorts!  Non only do they hide my mom pudge, but I love length and slight baggy fit.  Although they are not technically linen (I believe they are a polyester blend), they have a linen-like feel, which is perfect for the summer.  They are also super comfortable (hello elastic waistband), and I can see myself styling them both casually or dressing them up (I'm thinking a lunch with a white blazer).  For today's look I decided to pair them with my new button front camisole, which brings to my other favorite summer trend.  I've been seeing buttons on everything from tops, to jumpsuits, and dresses, and love the fun detail they add.  I found this camisole at Nordstrom, and know that it will be my summer go-to.   It's easy to throw on with shorts, or layer under a blazer for the office.  Plus, it is made of linen, making light and breathable on those hot and humid days.

*Sizing note.  These shorts are a size medium and fit perfectly (I wear a size 26/27 jean). I could probably get away with the small, but I like that they have a baggier fit.   My camisole runs a little big.  I am wearing the small which I find perfect on my 5'7' frame.  It's available in three colors, but hurry, they have been selling fast.  I noticed that the Extra-Small and Small were sold out in all three colors, but just got restocked in the tan!
