I was never a shorts person growing up. In fact, it wasn’t until a trip to New York during my second year in college that I started to get into shorts. A group of friends and I were had just left a donut shop when one of them suggested we duck into the Old Navy next door to kill a few minutes. Before this trip I’d only been to an Old Navy store twice!
Shocking isn’t it? But in my defense, I grew up in a town where we had a Walmart, Catos, B. C Moore’s and everything else was fast food restaurants and grocery stores. And the nearest mall had Wet Seal and Rave. Anyways, it was at this Old Navy in New York that my interest not only the brand but in wearing shorts began to grow.
I remember that I found the cutest khaki floral pattern shorts. I had to try them on. Sadly, the inseam was too high and the shorts and I parted ways. Well, this past weekend I headed back to Old Navy in search for the perfect pair of shorts to kick off my Mother’s Day celebration. And I found these cuties below.

Here’s a better look
After wearing these all day Saturday, I am in love. These will certainly be thrown into my wardrobe rotation. The linen fabric is very light and breathable. The relaxed fit made me feel comfortable that everything was covered in the booty area. Love, love the drawstring detail. I just have this thing for clothing with drawstrings or drawstring style belts.
The scoop pockets look small in the picture above but I was able to fit my EVO in there sideways. And it didn’t fall out when I sat. Aside from the wrinkling, I have nothing negative to say about these shorts. Linen is one of those easy to wrinkle fabrics but that doesn’t take away from the fact that Old Navy has a home run with these shorts.
Go, check these out if you haven’t. I will be going back for the white pair! Here a few of my other favorite shorts.
