I'll be honest with you, I was a little wary of the pleats (anchorman anyone?). But they are just the right balance of baggy + tailored. These have a tiny bit of stretch too. I have a feeling I'll be taking them on a quite a few bike rides this (indian) summer.
A note of sizing: these run a little big. I'm wearing size 2 here. I mostly wear medium with Everlane. (In fact, the tshirt is a medium.) So, I was pretty sure size 4 would fit. I got both sizes, just in case, and ended up keeping size 2. Size 4 ones were far too... puffy, if you will. For the reference, I'm 121/5'7''(technically, 5'6'' and 1/2).
Everlane has really been killing it this year. The silk, trench, poplin, shirt dress, and now the shorts. Bravo! Have you gotten anything recently?
Had to include this photo because it's hilarious. I'm pretty sure I'm pontificating to the cat.
Steven Alan gets it. In addition to making spot-on gamine essentials, they curate a selection of other brands. And really, I should limit my shopping at Steven Alan to this time of the year. Even on sale, most of it is absurdly expensive. Although I find it's totally worth the discounted price. (Paid full price for this one. What's more depressing? I don't regret it at all.)

It has been a couple of years since I've gotten clothes from J.Crew. I stopped by the store with my mom this past weekend and walked away with this piece. It is so incredibly soft, and the perfect length. (Biking approved.) Wore it the entire (long) weekend, and seriously contemplated washing it to wear on Monday. Is that disgusting or what?
