It should come as no surprise to y'all that I love Lilly's Callahan Short, because really...Lilly can do no wrong in my book!
I'd always been a J. Crew chino kind of gal (I've got close to 10 pairs of the shorts), but last summer I found myself feeling less and less satisfied with J. Crew's chino shorts. The 5" look awkward on my 5'3 body, so I always used to buy the 3". Last summer though, I felt myself pulling them down to make them longer constantly, and let's be honest--after wearing them for just a little while they get the worst wrinkles and all bunched up which makes them even shorter!
At the end of the summer I came across Lilly's Callahan short, though! I bought an aqua pair on sale and fell in love! I pulled them out for the first time of the season on Monday (paired with a white eyelet cami and white Jacks), so naturally I thought it would be appropriate to post about them.
Aren't they a great color?
What I love about the Callahan shorts are:
- Their 5" inseam is a little longer, but the cut is not awkward on my shorter body
- The material is a little softer than the J. Crew chino and they are SO much more comfortable
- They wrinkle way less than J. Crew chinos.
Fun shorts are one of my go-to summer staples. When I'm running around all day with the Cuties, comfort is key, but I still want to look cute. What I love about the Callahans is that you can pull them on with a plain tee shirt or tank and you're set!
These Callahans are now on my summer wishlist:
Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved the crisp look of white shorts. These might need to replace my white J. Crew chinos!
I have been obsessing over this print for a while now, so I think the shorts would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe!
Multi Minnie Zinny-- say that 5 times fast!
In middle and high school I had a pair of pale pink shorts I lived in! Eventually I had to get rid of them, because they were so worn, BUT I think these would be the perfect replacement!
Who doesn't love a fun a green print?
