Weekend Wear: Pastel Tops & Distressed Denim Shorts


We made it to Friday, babes! Can you believe it’s already mid-May? I don’t know about you ladies, but I’m definitely ready for a weekend with sunshine and 70-degree temps. It seems like the weather has been so dreary in Chicago lately.. but it looks like things may be starting to heat up! (fingers crossed). I guess that means I should probably get my wardrobe ready for summer.


One trend that’s been quickly taking over my closet is everything pastel. I went into Anthropologie yesterday…. (which is always a mistake) and walked out with a major pastel obsession. I literally went into the store for a couple last-minute Mother’s Day gifts, and walked out with a bag full of pastel tops for myself. (Dog moms deserve gifts too, right?!) Another must-have for the season – distressed denim. Julianna and I have been absolutely obsessed with distressed denim shorts lately, and the picks below are no exception. I love how versatile jean shorts are. You can keep your look super casual, with a basic tee and sneakers, or dress it up with an embroidered top (love this one, HERE.)  and espadrilles (our favorites linked HERE.)

Okay, so back to what’s important…I linked all of my favorite pastel tops and denim shorts for you all below! I’ve found some amazing deals, and have also included some great items that are worth the splurge. Happy shopping!
