Polka dots henley blouse + distressed bermuda jean shorts

The thing I am going to miss most about summer is the casual, laid back fashion. Summer style is always easy, breezy; wear a dress, sandals and just go or a pair of shorts, a top and sandals and you are on your way. I wore this outfit a few days ago when the weather was still warm and nice. The weather is still beautiful here in my city but it's starting to get cold in the mornings and evenings. Back to this outfit, I purchased this polka dots blouse from LOFT a couple of years ago and have enjoyed styling it in so many ways. As we know, polka dots print was the big prints for the summer and it is still going to be a big trend in the fall too along with animal prints; snake print, leopard prints, cheetah prints... I paired the blouse with a pair of heavily distressed DIY denim bermuda shorts and this pair of black and white high heeled sandals I purchased from Amazon two summers ago. My crochet knit bag from Target completed the look. Crochet is another huge trend to watch for in the spring of 2019. This look is edgy and can be worn to casual events like barbecues, to shopping and for hanging out with hubby or your girlfriends.

I remember I used to have a love hate relationship with distressed denim years ago or I would rather say; hate-hate relationship. I used to think the style was too rugged or rough and a little bit too out there until I figured out that it depends on the event you are wearing distressed denim to, the weather and also the extent of the ruggedness of the denim. When I sat down to think this over, I realized that I could wear distressed denim and just style it like another piece in my wardrobe instead of totally ruling it out. My tip for wearing distressed denim short is this; I prefer a pair of distressed bermuda shorts for me because it is age appropriate. I would not wear distressed denim short shorts unless I am at the beach or at a vacation spot or at home. Also, I would not wear a cropped top over it unless I layer a tank top underneath the cropped top or I would wear an oversized shirt or tee on top. This is  because I want to make the look age appropriate. The general idea is that distressed denim or short shorts is for  high school and college kids. Do you agree and how would you style your distressed denim shorts? Contribute to my thoughts in the comment section and thanks so much for stopping by.
