Affordable Summer Shorts

I find it difficult to find shorts that are comfortable, cute and affordable… But this summer I have had really good luck with finding shorts I love! Jean shorts and comfy/linen shorts seem to be the style this summer and I am here for it! Here are my fun and budget-friendly finds:

Affordable, budget-friendly summer shorts finds at Old Navy, Lofts, J. Crew, Maurices

Old Navy

Old Navy is one of my favorite stores because it sells basic and trendy pieces at budget-friendly prices. My favorite jean shorts (cut off and folded) are from Old Navy:

Old Navy also has an array of linen blended shorts that are so comfortable it’s basically like wearing athleisure shorts!


I recently visited a Loft factory outlet and bought three pairs of linen shorts! Yes, three! The Loft is not a place I normally search for clothing, but after visiting the factory outlet I went to their website and found that their shorts are very reasonably priced. If you hit a sale right, some shorts are only $25. Here are some linen shorts currently on their website I love:

J. Crew

J. Crew always has adorable clothing and good sales going on all the time. So don’t buy anything there without a coupon code! Wait for a sale! These shorts are a few of my favorite from J. Crew:


Maurices is not normally a place I shop at either, but I had a gift card to spend so I decided to stop in and found these cute and AMAZINGLY comfortable Dolphin Shorts. They have this style in lots of colors and can be easily dressed up or down:

Comfy and cute shorts can be difficult to find especially on a budget so remember to wait for sales, find those coupon codes and pick up at stores if free shipping isn’t an option 🙂
