Wearing shorts in the summertime is my all time favorite, especially linen striped drawstring shorts like this pair I recently bought at T.J. Maxx. I find T.J. Maxx in general to be hit or miss with quality but when it comes to summer white staples like a basic pair of linen shorts, a white cotton tee or a basic white blazer, you’re pretty sure to find it there at a great value. I tend not to overspend on summer whites as it’s hard to keep anything white, fresh and clean for the next season. So I usually buy the same white basics year after year without feeling guilty and about it!
I personally love wearing linen in the summer. It’s a noble fabric that keeps you cool in the warmer temperatures and makes any summer outfit fresh and chic. These light blue pinstriped shorts are the quintessential summer staple that you can dress up paired with a summer blazer or simply wear with a simple white tee or linen camisole.
A white blazer is a must-have to any French Chic summer wardrobe! I love pairing it with shorts in the day time or with a black silk camisole and denim pants in the evening.

Meet your host for Fabulous Friday, Jennie of A Pocketful of Polka Dots.
∼ Hey y’all, I’m Jennie and I am a 47 year old frugal fashionista! I am mom to two wonderful (and handsome!) sons and one very spoiled Pomeranian. After spending most of my life in black and boring clothes, I now enjoy trying new trends, am a confessed shoeaholic, believe life is too short for boring hair, and never met a polka dot I didn’t like. I am also an avid photographer, reader of Jane Austen, Paleo/Primal enthusiast, and lover of DIY. You can follow me here ∼
My pick from last week’s Fabulous Friday linkup is Jessica from Jeans and a Teacup.
