  1. This post couldn’t have come at a better time because I just ordered a new pair of “mom jean” denim shorts and I can’t wait to style them. I’m hoping to bring them to New York in the fall because I know it’s going to be super hot and was trying to think of ways to style them! I love the first look with the neck scarf, trench and western belt. I also like the idea of pairing them with a statement top! Thanks for the ideas as always babe! I’m sure my future posts will be inspired by you again (just like I was inspired with all the yellow =P)
