Only one picture, I'm afraid, but out of the many I took, only one turned out even remotely well (and that's still pretty remote). Which is a shame, because I really like this outfit. I plan to recycle it for a party this weekend. It's my new go-to outfit: bright, fun and pretty comfortable. Am I the only one who shamelessly recycles cute outfits (when I stumble on to them)?
REVIEW: J. Crew Factory 4" printed stretch chino shorts
I had forgotten about these adorable J. Crew Factory shorts I bought last month (too busy enjoying my comfy linen shorts from Old Navy, I guess). I won't make that mistake again! Now that I've worn them, I see many future outfits coming. My favorite white blazer will definitely make an appearance with said shorts...
Fit: True to size. I ordered my usual J. Crew bottom size, and it fit fine.
Cut: It's a more fitted cut, so keep that in mind if you are bottom heavy.
Style: Always a plus, there are pockets - both in front and back.
Fabric: Nice sturdy stretch twill. Feels good quality, even though the pattern is printed-on, not my usual favorite type.
