1 Pair of Shorts Styled 6 Ways

Team LIY

The second we spotted these J.Crew Factory linen blend shorts, we knew we had to try them. The fit, the colors, the price – it was the trifecta. The ladies of LIY shopped our closets to style them in our own ways, just in time for spring and summer. Something tells us we’re going to be putting these shorts into the weekly rotation a whooooole lot as things warm up!


Shorts [size down if in between, wearing in small but could do XS] // Tee [size down if in between, wearing in small but could do XS] // Sandals [size up .5]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.
