Weekend Steals & Deals | Summer Shorts Edition

So happy for the weekend again! These weeks seem to be flying by lately and we only have two weeks of school left over here!  I can’t believe summer break is almost here.  We have Field Day at school today and then some time at Grandma’s house, so we’re starting our weekend off right!  What are y’all up to?  I have to keep my bikini prep game going over the weekend.  This week has been really good with my food and workouts, can’t wait to share my progress with you on Monday!  Hope y’all have a great weekend!


summer uniform – cute shorts outfits
Our weather is really starting to heat up and I find myself reaching for shorts most days. Cute shorts outfits like below are my summer staples, and probably yours too!  Now that I have some cuter sandals (other than my HWH Everyday Favorite flip flops), I’m feeling a little more put together, even on shorts days.


Summer Uniform - jean shorts, tank, sandals
I wish my exact pair of GAP jean shorts would come back in stock.  They are probably the most-worn item in my closet! I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for them and let you know if they get restocked.  The pair I linked are similar, but not exactly the same.

I realized I was only wearing two pair of shorts repeatedly (my jean shorts above and my white military shorts), so I ordered a few more styles of shorts.   These Caslon (3-inch) shorts below are interesting with the pattern, but still a neutral so they go with everything.  I got them in white too because they are a tad longer than my white military style shorts- better if I am wearing them at the school or something like that.
Caslon shorts for summer
Caslon ‘Addison’ shorts (the 3-inch since I’m a shorty). I felt like they ran big and the 0P was what fit me (5’1, 107 lbs.)  If you like your shorts longer, the 5-inch are also cute in two patterns (and on sale!).
Caslon shorts for summer
Caslon 5-inch shorts $42.50, $25.49 (regular & petite)
Either shorts are  cute with the Frenchi Swing Tank that’s still on sale for just $15.90 in 12 colors.  Time to stock up peeps!

Caslon ‘Addison’ shorts | HWH Everyday Favorite Vince Camuto Effel Sandal $118.95, $79.90 | Frenchi Swing Tank | necklace (similar) | earrings (similar)
Summer Uniform - shorts, tank, sandals
Another super comfy pair of shorts are by Jolt – I ordered size 3 since they’re Juniors, but they’re too big so I need to exchange them for a 1 or  0.  I love they drawstring style.

Below are my HWH Everyday Favorite military shorts.  I told you I love them so much I bought them in another color! They also come in olive, indigo, and “washed black” that looks kind of brown on the screen.  They are short (3-inch), so just know that before you buy.

At LOFT, their Riviera shorts (4-inch) sure are cute and come in bright, playful colors – but unfortunately, not on sale right now. 🙁

    Love those gold sandals! They would go with so much. Also wanted to let you know that Target has a pretty nice selection of shorts in many colors similar to some that you're showing. I love them!
    Hope you have a good weekend!

      Oh yes! I saw some at Target! Bought the size 3 without trying on and they were too by. When I went back, they didn't have my size. 🙁

    Fun clothes Megan! Btw – was going to tell you I'm so happy you merged your blogs! I enjoy the fitness stuff but rarely had time to check that blog after getting lost and spending all my time on your home blog when I check in. 🙂 Happy to be able to see it all in one place! And so impressed you are doing the bikini contest again! You look amazing and are motivating me to get my butt to the gym! 🙂 xo

      So glad that works better for both of us! 8 weeks to go! I'm on the bike now- 22 more minutes! 😉

      Fun for summer, right! 🙂

    Loving the Zoe & Rose dress from Nordstrom! What size did you order? I'm always unsure when ordering junior sizes.

    • May 18, 2015 / 11:12 pm

      I know what you mean about junior sizing, but I ordered XS and it fits me fine. I'm only 5'0 though- about 107 pounds.

    • May 26, 2015 / 2:19 pm

      Hi again – I wanted to thank you for finding such a cute dress! I love it! I ordered both the XS and the S and the XS ended up being the winner.

    Hi Megan! Just ordered the crochet dress in red! So cute! Love your fashion posts. Keep em coming! ?
