It’s inevitable that during the summer months, we all basically live in our denim shorts. Whether you cut them from old jeans or scour your local mall looking for that perfect pair, shorts and summer go together like Taylor Swift and a Jonas Brother. Earlier this year, during our Spring Denim Series, myself and some of my favorite bloggers got together to highlight some of the best denim trends for the season and it was a huge hit. Now we’re back with one of the same amazing brands, American Eagle, to show how us ladies style one killer pair of denim shorts for summer! I loved the idea of taking these distressed shorts and dressing them up with a classic blazer and wedges. Add on a baseball cap, and I’m ready for a weekend of fun around DC!
