Wearing jeans in the summer is like wearing a Halloween costume to Christmas dinner – it’s just not right. Number one: it’s hot outside. Number two: there are so many amazing shorts to wear! Upgrade your shorts style with a few of my favorite shorts for the season, available right here in the North Dallas Corridor. Stock your drawers with these beauties and slowly back away from the jeans – they’ll be waiting for you when September rolls around.
