My Okanaganista article this week is all about shorts! I love summer, but find it hard to stay fashionable in the heat when I only want to wear cut offs and tank tops!

    That third look with the t-shirt and combat boots is the perfect casual summer look, definitely an inspirational image for me. You look awesome in all these shorts shots, lady! And I prefer loose cotton shorts, preferably printed and worn with a loose blouse and cute flats or chunky wedges, since you asked.

    funny thing – the progression of gasping got louder and louder as i scrolled down to see each of these pictures. I think the white out is my FAVORITE. I've seen those mesh bathing suit tops everywhere and have been drawn to them, but without inspiration as to how to wear them. So this is great! Gotta get one asap.

    Also, I want to steal your ikat bag. big love.
