A reader asked about styling chino shorts, and it took me down a little shopping rabbit hole that has now left me determined to buy a pair of long-ish white denim shorts for summer. I’m not a shorts gal, but I must live out this styling fantasy. (Inspo above from Symphony of Silk and below from Irma Tessar.)

First up: the shorts. Slightly long, a modern mom-fit. I found three excellent options at different price points: Veronica Beard ($$$), Agolde ($$), and Zara ($).

Second up: styling. I love the idea of wearing these shorts with a more polished top and a trendy pair of sandals, or an unexpected little jacket and some ladylike flats. These details make the entire look intentional and fashion-conscious.

Styling Mom Shorts: Look 1.

Top: Alex Mill. I also love Rag & Bone’s slightly more expensive Maxine top — it has a great polish/shine to it, but wears like a t-shirt — and you can get the look for less with either this one from Nordstrom’s house brand or this one from Sezane.

Bag: Loewe Anagram tote. I’m eyeing this bag seriously after seeing that it’s being released in both a hot pink and a kiwi green. I love a bold color moment! I’ve never once regretted picking a bag in a statement color.

Sandals: Prada. Look for less with these or these.

Sunglasses: Celine. Look for less with these.

Styling Mom Shorts: Look Two.

Jacket: BA&SH. Look for less with this.

Tee: COS. This just arrived and is a great, luxe, heavy-weight cotton. It runs a tad cropped but otherwise TTS. I took the XXS. TBH, very similar to the $15 Uniqlo. I would put them neck and neck — similar, thick weight; structured fit; etc.

Bag: Celine. Look for less with this Demellier or Sezane.

Flats: Margaux. A good price for a really soft, high-end looking flat. I own these in red.

Watch: Hermes. Look for less with March Hare (10% off with code MAGPIEBYJENSHOOP).

P.S. The things your children will miss.

P.P.P.S. Matching sets for spring.
