Beating the heat in the summer means trading in those jeans for some summer shorts, but just because you’ve ditched the length doesn’t mean you have to ditch the gun. With a little help from 5.11 Tactical, our model demonstrated just how comfy concealed carry can be with a gun in tow.

Sporting a 5.11 Tactical Cuff Key blouse ($49.99) with Arin shorts ($59.99), Volund Gearworks Atlas Cobra Slim Belt ($75) and Springfield Armory XD Mod 2 in a StealthGear holster ($55) positioned behind the hip she prepped the car for a road trip.

After arriving at her destination, she spiced the outfit up with some coral colored, scalloped shorts from her own wardrobe paired, again, with the Cuff Key blouse. This time, our model opted to tie off the shirt for a cool, fun summer look while she relaxed in the shade with a book. To achieve this look, she traded the Springfield XD in for the slimmer, smaller Smith & Wesson Shield in a Bravo Concealment Dos IWB Kydex holster ($29.99).
