Happy 4th of July, dolls! So glad you’re stopping by! Today I’m keeping it easy breezy in my favorite pair of denim shorts and a comfy jersey bodysuit to celebrate Independence Day in style…

Independence Day is my favorite holiday, and while you are reading this, chances are that my family and I are on our way to Glencoe for our traditional picnic at the park. We always stay until the fireworks which is so fun! And with the amazing weather we’re currently having I tend to count denim shorts as one of my favorite warm-weather mainstays, if not for their longevity, but the sheer ease. This season you’ll probably see me wearing them non-stop especially since I’m leaving to California this week! I’m beyond excited for this trip especially since my husband and I will make the decision whether or not we really want to move out there. Anyhow, I’m slightly getting off-topic here. I’ve compiled my favorite denim shorts below. Click through to shop my favorite jean shorts for all occasions.

As always, thanks much for reading and Happy 4th!!

Much love.

    I love those shorts on you, Vanessa! They’re so cute and I adore the fringed hem. I love the way you’ve paired them with a simple black bodysuit and added a pop of patriotic color with your bandana! I hope you had a wonderful time spent at the park with your family and enjoyed the holiday! How exciting that you’ll be visiting California next week, I can’t wait to learn more! I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far and thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, sending lots of love your way!
