More and more schools are going online this fall. It doesn't look like it will be business will be as usual as safety and health become our top priority. All this means I won't be dressing up anytime soon. That's why I'm telling you to never underestimate the power of denim shorts.

Never Underestimate The Power Of Denim Shorts

Since there's no where to go right now, I'm dressing down. There are a few things on constant repeat like these $40 Levi's denim shorts that I bought on a whim from Amazon back on March 1st. Little did I know, they would become part of my summer capsule wardrobe. They are mom-approved (a higher waist and more backside coverage) and there’s no end in sight for their utility. 

The Levi's 501 High Rise Short has a 3" inseam unrolled (and that's the way I wear them), but feel free to roll them up to make them 2". The waist makes them mom approved (thank goodness that high waists are back in!) and the longer length works for those of us over 30!

What to wear with your denim

Right now I am wearing a lot of statement tees. I usually have good luck shopping for tees and tanks at Evereve. That's where I found this one. Head over to Evereve here to check out the latest tops. 

The weather is perfect here right now and I'm counting my blessings that I can still be in these minimalist outfits that offer maximum comfort.

And here in Vermont, it's all about comfortable shoes. My Birkenstock sandals take me everywhere I need to be. You can pick from a bunch of colors on Zappos here.

I hope you are finding your fashion happy place in this weird time. Stay strong and stylish mom friends!
