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.

  3. This is the quintessential French aesthetic chic look. Love your shorts, a great find from TJ Maxx. I also like the cute fedora on you and yeay for co-hosting another linkup!

    Last but not least, you should check out my most recent post when you have time, because we are both rocking white with blue+white stripes except my bottoms are white and my stripes are on top. I also have on similar ghilly sandals and a fun neutral hat, Christine. Hey, great minds think alike!

  4. I like this light blue pinstriped shorts, the color is full of naturally fresh sense in hot days. I agree with you that whites it’s hard to keep anything white, fresh and clean for the next season. But I still like white t shirt, white dress and white blouse. The white color is really easy to pair with other outfits.

  5. Christine, thank you so much for co-hosting with me this week!
    Shorts and a blazer are a favorite look of mine. I really like how you topped off this classic look with your stylish chapeau! These are wonderful photos. You are a natural in front of the camera.

  6. Stopping by from Jennie’s link-up at Pocketful of Polka Dots. Your patriotic outfit is adorable. Very cute detailing on the blazer. And then here you are looking so cool and fresh in this white blazer. I think I need to add one to my wardrobe. My hubs likes a blazer with jeans but had never tried a blazer with shorts. Great look.
