Summer Casual: Are Shorts Ever Okay? Can Shorts Be Worn with a Jacket?

Antonio, summers in Texas can get unbearable at times (as you know.) What’s the view on shorts with maybe a tucked in polo with loafers in more casual environments (obviously not in a dressier office environment)? Does this just seem like you’re always at a golf outing? Also, I’ve sometimes seen lighter sportcoats/blazers paired with this. I think sometimes it looks a little awkward but can also look very sharp.
