On the Edge of the Week Link Up #4 and Tee Shirt Giveaway

Today I am sharing with you a classic all-American summer look. Cut off distressed denim shorts, a plain white tee shirt, and footbed sandals. I feel like I stepped straight out of John Mellencamp’s 1980’s but with a modern twist. I just need a black moto jacket for cool summer nights and a pack of smokes! Ha. That’s where the modern vibe comes…no smokes! I am not going to go off on a smoking soap box. We all have our vices. No judgments coming from here.

So now let’s just get on with it. It’s the Edge of the Week and time for a link up. And I also have a tiny little giveaway, too. I received this adorable graphic tee by Bellarose from my dear friend, Amy. But woe is me, it is too small! So I am going to give it away (with Amy’s okay, of course!). There is no size tag anywhere on it that I can see but I would say it fits a Medium-Large.

  1. This definitely screams All American..which is all right by me! Love this summer casual look on you. Nothing is better than a little cut off short and a cute tee. Hope you have a great weekend ahead!



    • Thanks so much, Shauna! I think sometimes as bloggers we get so wrapped up in sharing spectacular outfits that it is a nice relief to go back to basics sometimes, too! And there’s nothing more basic than a white tee and cut off shorts!


  2. You look cute and comfy. Love the new do and your little photo bomber. Thanks for hosting.


    • Thank you, Rena! I don’t often share pictures of my kids on the blog, but they photobomb so often that I figured I’d share it this time!


  3. Love the white tee. I could wear one everyday of the week. πŸ™‚ The OOTD tee also made me smile. Great Giveaway! Still on the hunt for a pair of jean shorts that look good on me. I have a curvy lower figure so it’s hard to find something slimming that’s a comfortable length…the search goes on. xx-S

    • Thank you, Shannon. I hope you find your perfect jean shorts soon! My advice on that is to keep trying on every different style of denim shorts that you can find even if you don’t particularly like them on the hanger. Eventually, you will find a pair that you love! Have a fabulous weekend.


  4. Cute summer look! I love the necklace!

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. Oh I love the giveaway! Little man has a cool t shirt too! Have a great weekend x

  6. This is the perfect summer look! Those shorts are so cute and look great on you!

  7. Love this outfit Shelbee! It would be perfect with a lightweight leather jacket. Usually it’s my dogs that photobomb me, but a couple of years ago on New Year’s Eve I decided to take outfit shots after a few beverages and my 26 year old son photobombed me…fun times…lol! Can I just tell you that I love that your son called the sea gulls “sky rats”?! I would totally freak if there was a flock of them at my house. We have this ginormous (I mean like 50 or so) flock of turkey vultures that live in these huge pine trees about a block from our house. They are truly heinous creatures; I’d take gulls any day of the week. The freakin’ things are about as big as me. Anyway, they are always skulking around the ‘hood, usually kind of lazily floating overhead terrorizing people. The other day a bunch of them were hanging out in a field down the street, eating dead things I suppose. One of them just sat there in the middle of the field with it’s wings fully extended staring at the road…seriously, Shelbee, it was like a bad dream come to life!! Ew.

    • Oh my gosh, Debbie! I totally just laughed out loud at this comment! I don’t think I have ever seen a turkey vulture in real life and I don’t think that I want to either! How gross! And you are in Pennsylvania, right? My home state…I never saw those gross creatures in all my 30 plus years living in PA! Here in upstate New York, we have wild turkeys everywhere. They often stop traffic. And you can get a huge fine if you hit them with your car! A few years ago as I was leisurely drinking my morning coffee in my living room, I heard this really loud, awful sound outside at like 6:00 in the morning. I went to the window to see what all the noise was about and I was nose to beak with this giant turkey staring right in my living room window. It squawked in my face so loud, I jumped and screamed! Turns out it was a mama turkey calling for her babies…she spent the next 8 weeks or so with those babies moving from my backyard to my front yard. I guess they were nesting in the trees behind my house. Weird, creepy creatures!

      Have a fabulous weekend! Hopefully, it’s a bird-free one!

    • Thanks, Jodie! They think it’s funny when I yell at them to get of the picture! hahaha! I have to let them in because they get so excited to have their photo taken (except when I want to take their picture, then they want no part of it)!

      Have a fabulous weekend.

  11. Oh, I like your swing tee! I cannot recall seeing a tee like this before and it looks perfect with your distressed denim shorts. so fun to see a photo of your son included. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much, Jennie! I usually don’t put pictures of my kids on the blog, but I figured I share their photos on Instagram and so many people look at that anyway. So why the heck not share here?! Have a fabulous weekend.
