Well, it’s going to be one hundred and nine degrees today here in north Texas. I wrote it out to be dramatic. It’s offensively hot this week. As Texans, we all saw it coming, every summer we are prepared to feel the first layer of the sun. So how does one dress for that kind of assault? Shorts, duh. That was a gimme answer since I was wearing them in my photos, you guys. It’s shorts or nothing at all and as I’ve learned it’s hard to sell clothing when you are naked.

  4. Oooh, the glasses, the shoes, the necklace, the shirt, the shorts. I am most definitely loving this outfit!

  5. Urgh. That's too bloody hot. I'm not sure who has it the hardest…Texans and the summer broil, or Albertans and the deep winter freeze. I'd say it's a toss up. Anyway, love the shorts and I love that you accessorized with a much brighter color in the same family.

    Lovely summer look. I've got these shorts too and they are a great fit and compliment-getter! I've worn white with them a lot, but patterns are particularly fun to experiment with as well.

    It can be pretty brutal here in DC, too. If it weren't for everyone's stupid "no clothes no service" policy, I'd be set. We appear to be in a torrential downpour at the moment, though, so feel free to come on over. I have booze and a dog.

  13. Whoa! New layout! It's fantastic – fresh and clean. Ditto for the shorts. I'm now comes the part where I spend too long exploring your new "sort by colour" feature.

    i can relate to dressing for intense summer heat. i live in st. louis where it's been 102-110 for most days the past 3 months. the flip side is our office hovers around 48 degrees. so do you dress for summer or winter? love this outfit ~ even in 109 degree temps, you manage to look totally cool. 😉 ~ susan

  30. Growing up in Austin I pretty much went to Barton Springs everyday it's just too hot to do anything else. Of course then I was young and didn't have to pay for anything and it was ok to be half dressed all day. Oh to be 16 again.

  31. I was having a bad morning and decided to do some intense retail therapy. I read todays post as I was walking into Old Navy and looked up to find that they have the same color/polka dot shorts as seen here! I got so excited! It was a retail sign! So, I tried on the shorts with a flowy white shirt…turned around to look at myself in the mirror… and literally laughed (then cried) out loud in the dressing room. You pull this off so well, and I sadly did not. I suppose shorts and I don't really get along. I'll stick with skirts. Nevertheless, I did score some mega deals at Ulta, so not a bad day after all. :)

    Keep rocking those shorts, girl!

    As for the ‘Pants and Feelings,’ I don’t think any outfit you wear or anything you say would turn your readers away. We love your candor and your cute clothes…so, just be you! That’s why we all started following KE in the first place, right?

    Girl, your legs look fabulous!!  Miles long.  And working those glasses!

    I would never guess that it would be anywhere near that hot by looking at these photos.  If it were me, I would a hot mess.  A literal one, not an attractive one.  But I guess that's what you get when you're from Texas and I'm from rainy Washington…
