How to wear distressed denim shorts

Bell sleeve top | Distressed denim shorts (I rolled mine up) | Rebecca Minkoff studded sandals (on sale!) | Starshooter ring | Hermes bangle (dupe here) | Milano 6 Stone Bangle
One of my favorite combinations for summer is a flowy top paired with distressed denim. I’m especially fond of this bell sleeve darling because it’s super light weight, and despite the long sleeves very cool. It was actually over 95 the day we took these photos, and I was surprised by how comfortable this top was. 
One thing I always struggle to find every summer is a perfect pair of denim shorts. I’m very picky about the fit and I usually order about 5 pairs (and return them) before I get it right. These were an instant heck-yes! I love the over distressed look of these and how they are just the right length. They were a total splurge at $150, but well worth it. I’ll also be linking a few budget friendly options below, so be sure to scroll and check them out! Also, if you love my sandals, they are currently marked down, so it’s a win, win situation!

    I love how the longer sleeves really balance out the shorts! In Texas you basically have to wear shorts May-September sooo after a while I start feeling awkward withs o much leg showing all the time!
