Happy Thursday! It’s funny but shorts seem to stir up a little controversy here on Style at a Certain Age. I was surprised to realize how many ladies out there disagree with wearing shorts. Personally, I love shorts! They’re so versatile and perfect for hot days. It’s great to have a separates option besides skirts and pants in the summer. So today I have Chic Shorts for Summer.
Of course, I have casual shorts for lounging around and running errands, but I do like the versatility of Ann Taylor’s line of structured shorts: the City Short, the slightly longer Metro Short and the longer still, Boardwalk Short. All three come in both regular and petite sizes. So no matter what length you prefer, there is a chic short for you!

I have these same shorts in white and this summer, I decided to go for a pair in black. Ann Taylor really does a great job with their petite sizing and these shorts are no exception. And the $60 price point is pretty agreeable!
This Petite Collared Blouse from Banana Republic Factory is just the ticket for dressing up my chic shorts. With a silk-like finish, this collared blouse adds just the right amount of shine to my outfit. I love the neutral oyster pearl color of this top, it will go beautifully with so many items in my closet.
Every summer I am on the lookout for different and interesting espadrilles to add to my ever-expanding collection. When I saw these Striped Slingback Espadrilles at J.Crew, I couldn’t help but add them to my shopping cart. While their slingback design is unique, it’s the stripes that drew me in.
Then because I am a sucker for stripes, I went for this Crochet Rectangle Bag in a matching natural and black stripe. I like to put together a neutral outfit and then add either a punch of color or pattern. These striped accessories are just the ticket!
