Casual Look with Denim Shorts and Loft Red Tank

 

Morning friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend as we delve into summer a bit more.  This is always the time of year where I start to crave Fall clothes and shoes, so I got a bit of a head start and found some amazing sales. I wrote about Things i Love About Summer in this post,  as it isn’t over yet!  Speaking of summer, this is a fun and casual look from LOFT that I put together, as I love red and halter tops are the thing when the heat is on!

Last year I wrote a post about Wearing a Romper ( shorts “jumper” for those in the UK) as I feel ladies of any age can wear shorts if they want to! I bought these medium rinse denim shorts at Loft Outlet and they were a whopping $18! The top I had seen on another blogger, Lisa, and I loved the neckline and flowy, peplum style, not to mention it is in red. I love this rich, vibrant, shade – one of my favorites.

For an even more casual look, I could have worn my white Seychelle leather slides, or a pair of my new converse sneakers, but I decided to go for a bit more funkiness and fun with my Jambu gladiator sandals in a deep red color. A women in Loft said she loved my shoes- i do get asked about Jambu when I were them! Stay tunes on the blog for some Fall styles and  a discount code from me.

Denim shorts are one of those staples that are great for the summer. They go with everything and look current . There are denim shorts with embellishments, details, and longer more “Bermuda style” shorts.  Varying lengths for everyone’s taste. I folded the hem to the shorts up once, as this is the style and they are loose and comfy. For reference, these are a size  2 in Loft, a size down from my jean size.

Weekend

Had a great time at one of our favorite places, The Cottage, as they host a wine dinner each weekend. Since I don’t eat meat other than chicken and fish, I had to let them know. We had a great time with the 5 wines ranging from a White Bordeux from France, a Pinot Griogio from Italy to a California Pinot Nior and last, my favorite, a Spanish Tampranillo. Sometimes, I think I daydream of owning a vineyard and enjoy the fruits of the labor. I know it is hard work, but I truly enjoy learning about various wines and climates. The dinner was scrumptious with a starter of apple tart accompanied by the White Bordeaux, the dinner a chicken, orzo and spinach meal with a medium bodied Pinot Nior and dessert of peach pie/whipped cream with the final wine. I didn’t quite make it to dessert, so hubby graciously finished mine off~

Accessories

You all know by now I am a purse girl. I just loved the circle shape of this bag, a vintage feel and the colorful floral embroidery. Another Poshmark find, this bag is from Zara. i do plan on doing a post on some wonderful thrifting deals i have found recently.

In the Summer I am not one to wear a lot of heavy jewelry and sometimes forgo necklaces altogether. Iv’e been enjoying buying some statement earrings from Baublebar, where I purchased these white floral drop earrings .

As a Jambu Brand Ambassador, I knew I wanted to wear a red shoe with this look, and these strappy gladiator sandals were the perfect mix.  The Sugar Too I have posted about HERE, a fun a beautiful, red shoe. I’ve done many posts on Jambu, and the fact they have have a memory foam footbed make them so easy to wear all day. Not to mention, stylish! I’ll be posting more on Jambu in the Fall!

    Hey, Jess! Love this halter style top and the drop earrings, very eye-catching and flattering. I really enjoy a pop of red when it can be worked into an outfit, even if it is just the shoes for a fun surprise. Talk soon 😀

    WOW! You look amazing in this top! Such a fun design, and the shaping is great. Like this one a lot better than the gingham design.

      Hi Jodie
      There are some great deals now on denim shorts, you should snag a pair. I linked mine and they were $25 shipped from Loft Outlet. Painting is hard work! You will feel so grateful when it is over and excited too. I was when we got our rooms painted recently, but we have a 2 story Great Room, so hubby and i weren’t about to get up on scaffolding- we had someone do it! xx

    That red halter looks great on you Jess! It will be great with a jacket in the fall too – super piece! Love it with the denim shorts an of course those Jambu gladiators. You have the long legs to pull off this look for sure.
    Your weekend sounds great. Husbands are always good at finishing off desserts, aren’t they?

      Morning!
      thank you Kellyann! At first I wasn’t sure if the peplum was too high on me, but that is the style and it is a flowy piece. Two other ladies in line also had the same top! I love red, so I hope to add some more pieces here and there. Yes! I love the idea with a jacket. We did have a nice weekend, so fun with the wine tasting. xx
