sweaters in the summer.

I love being able to transition my fall/winter wardrobe into a spring/summer look. This sweater happens to work perfectly with soft shorts! I’ve worn these shorts in a post previously (and linked my favorite soft shorts) and you guys loved the look, so I thought I’d share another look. This sweater is such a unique color and is so comfy! ALSO. I’ve got some ways to save at American Eagle to buy a few pairs of soft shorts so we can twin 👭

Soft shorts are the best type of shorts. They’re like fancy pajama shorts, which honestly, who doesn’t want? I paired with some baby block heels from Steve Madden which are super cute and make the outfit look ever so fancy. Can I get an amen for comfy and stylish outfits?! These heels are currently on sale, grab them before it’s too late!

Talking about sales, American Eagle has some great ones going on right now. Currently, they have BOGO 50% off all shorts and jeans (buy yourself a pair of soft shorts STAT). They also have $40 off your purchase and an extra 50% off clearance. I’ve been using the app Honey on my Chrome browser, which checks the sales of websites before you check out. It’s really helpful and easy to see if you can save money!

Can we talk about how orange my hair looks in these photos? It’s back to brown (and short) now and can’t wait to see how it photographs. I’ve had red/orange hair for what seems like a longggg time, I’m SO happy to be back to my natural shade. Happy Thursday, readers o’ mine!

    Short shorts are the best kinda shorts! I agree with that! I am loving this look and style.

    I am always cold, so I wear sweaters all summer long. We go to Orlando every August and people look at me funny when I am in long sleeves in 100+ degree weather 🙂

      I love sweaters in hot weather – both wearing them myself and see others wearing them.

    I don’t have the type of figured that could pull off wearing some very short short shorts anymore like I used to. I love those shoes they are adorable I’m not a fan of showing my toes but I’m trying to get over it so that I could wear cute shoes this summer .

  • Cassie @ Be Forever Healthier

    Really like your look and style here! Australia gets way to hot in summer to wear sweaters and even sometimes too hot in winter lol! but this sweater your wearing is so cute

  • Terri Steffes

    I like your hair. When I go red, it tends to fade to orange, so I have to be careful of the shade. I am in love with the color of that sweater!

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    I wished that I could wear a sweater in the summer. This is a super cute outfit! Living in Florida though, I’d die of heat!

    Such a pretty outfit!! And I’m loving the first photo so much, it literally shines – and so do you! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend beauty xx

    When you work in an office wearing a sweater, even in the summer, is a necessity. I swear they keep those offices like an igloo. I like the idea of pairing a sweater with shorts so you look chic and still keep warm.

  • Carolyn

    Those shorts do look so comfy. And dressier than pajamas. I love the color of the sweater.

  • Nikki

    I actually do wear sweaters in the summer. Hey, it gets cold at night! That sweater is really cute.

  • Tasha

    I am loving the color of that sweater! It looks very light and breezy! Love how you paired the sweater with the skirt!

  • Amanda Love

    I love this look, it’s so comfy and perfect for the summer. Those shorts are definitely a must have! I like how soft they are.

  • Elizabeth O.

    I love the idea of being able to use your clothes in different seasons. That will definitely help you save money as well. Love this outfit!

  • Sarah

    I wear long sleeves in the summer a lot and my husband thinks I am crazy. That outfit looks wonderful on you!

  • Toughcookiemommy

    I’ve always liked the sweater in the summer look. It is especially useful during those chilly summer nights that you spend out with the family.

  • Rachel

    That sweater is really cute. I love being able to wear longer sleeves. I’m not a fan of my arms so I always look for something with a bit of a sleeve.
