Le Chateau made in Canada

Vintage Denim Shorts…

Remember this post from a couple weeks ago? There I was, just 2 outfit posts back, talking about how I am not a ‘shorts wearing girl’ and yet here I am, just a couple weeks later and wearing shorts again! Further to that, this time I am wearing them with heels- something I never thought I would do! But, I have to say, it just felt right. Let me walk you through this look and talk about what works here.

Like I shared in my last shorts blog post, I like to elevate my shorts by pairing them with something slightly unexpected. So, I dressed these up…but only little. I like to pair my denim shorts with pieces that are sophisticated but definitely not fancy. A linen blazer is relaxed and chic – the perfect compliment, and brown leather always gives off a casual vibe so these shoes, even though they have a heel, worked well. Throwing on the hat just made this outfit more ‘me’ and I love pairing my vintage Chanel bag with just about anything! For a day in the city this outfit felt appropriate- casual but with a twist.

Ever since buying these vintage Levis shorts I have loved wearing them with a blazer but that has been a bit tricky with this heat. I picked up this light weight linen blazer last week from the Le Château Outlet. That place is honestly a gem. I walked in and was slightly overwhelmed (in a good way!)- the walls are packed floor to ceiling with past season stock. It’s a no frills shopping experience, but, if you are like me and enjoy the thrill of searching through racks on racks this place is full of great finds. My favourite surprise was that SO MUCH of the stock was made in Canada. I was super impressed. So I picked up this linen blazer (made in Canada, of course!) and these little pumps that I know I’ll get a ton of wear out of for the rest of the season.

    First, you have killer legs babe! I’m so glad you decided to wear shorts again. That blazer and denim shorts are a perfect combo for a summer chic look. That bag is to die for btw. I love the entire outfit! xx
