[Julia is wearing the H81 Adria Linen Shorts, a top of her own design, and Mossimo pumps]
By July, I came to the sad conclusion that jean cut-offs show my gams no mercy, and I’m better off wearing a more flattering jean short fit. Luckily, I discovered the H81 Adria Linen Short, $19.90, a linen and cotton blend with a removable matching belt that has a tiny bit of flare in order to not hug my leg, and slit back pockets to compliment, instead of surpress, my derriere. I’ve tried dressing the shorts up, which works wonderfully (seen in the pic), and making them more casual with a solid beater or worn tee and canvas sneakers looks absolutely adorable. The shorts tend to retain their shape and can be worn about three times before needing to be washed, and definitely can be packed away and pulled out again next summer.
