T-shirts and shorts in the summer anyone? Or is it too casual?

    Bunch of heat warnings from my weather app--I'm compelled to pick up some shorts. But, sigh, I probably need to pick up shoes to go with them. It seems it's gonna get hotter and hotter, right?

    If I'm going to a restaurant or someplace in public other than the gas station/grocery store/laundry mat/etc. I'll put on khaki shorts and a polo/short sleeve button up, but that's the exception to the rule.

    In years past, I would avoid wearing shorts in public. I'm a bit self-conscious about the whiteness of legs, but I'm starting to care a little less about that. Plus, the more often I wear shorts outside, the less white my legs get; funny how that works.

    Anyways, I hope my preferred choice of shorts with pockets doesn't earn me a ban.
    Personally I think the elastic band on the shorts gives them too much of a "dad" look for wearing out. But there is always a line between functional and dressing up. And that depends on the person, the tasks on hand, and who they interact with.

    I'm heading to home depot in about 30mins wearing gym shorts and a sports team t-shirt. It's home depot, I know I'm not dressing to impress there. I am trying to get this errand done and on to my next tasks.

    The problem with perfectly fitting short sleeves on a short sleeved shirt is that there's not much give. You can buy a t-shirt with tight sleeves and it will stretch fine. With the former, if it's a perfect fit I worry about it bursting open if I move or flex too much.

    I feel like this would be a good place to mention the merits of the short sleeve button down and shorts. I know that short sleeve button downs get a bad wrap, but they look great with shorts, or even pants so long as you get them with sleeves that fit. Too often the sleeves balloon out off of your arm. But, good fitting short sleeves are out there. Promise. Furthermore, I fundamentally do not understand the shots with rolled up OCBD sleeves. If it's hot enough to wear shorts, it is certainly hot enough for a short sleeve shirt. To me, shorts and a rolled-up long sleeve looks like it's laundry day, and you were out of options.

    Long pants, yes. I roll those up walking on the sand. I don't go walk on the shore often enough. I definitely don't go to the water either.

    J. Crew 9" inch shorts and J. Crew washed slim v-necks are my uniform when I am not at work during the summer. If it is too humid and im just around the house, shirt is optional.

    ^ This. Agree 100%

    In my part of the world it's always in the 80s and 90s year round. I wear the tee and shorts combo going to the gym, or for a quick in and out at the mall and if I'm not expecting to see anyone I know. The tee and shorts are always well-fitting, of course.

    My daily uniform is gym shorts and a v-neck t-shirt. That's mostly because I live in Florida and work remotely. The amount of ball sweat you accumulate in this state once you put on anything other than gym-shorts is insane.

    That said, if I am leaving the house, it's not hard to throw on "outside" shorts in a jiffy.

    I find that I feel more put-together in my T-shirt/shorts ensembles when I use summer colors. A blue gingham pair of shorts with a burnt orange garment-dyed tee still looks like you care a bit. As opposed to a plain white tee and plain tan shorts.
