Grovin' In My Island Company Short Shorts

Aide-de-Camp Lizzie and I have spent the past decade on a perpetual hunt for thee perfect linen short, the more late 70's/early 80's vibe, the better...

So, my recent discovery of Island Company's linen Short Shorts most definitely merits coming off the beach for a quickie post...

Especially considering my inaugural pink pair has let me spend the last week getting my Ali MacGraw on...

And, with a White pair en route...

I feel an encore coming on...

Cue the Camel...

For my sporty Lauren Hutton moment in the sun...

Then the Caribe for pairing with my Mexican embroidered pheasant blouse...

And, I'm a très sun kissed Christie Brinkley sipping Margaritas with the crew after wrapping up an SI shoot in the Seychelles...

By the time I score the Navy pair...

My summer abs should be Pucci scarf as a halter worthy enough for my best Marisa Berenson cavorting in Capri...

*FYI, I feel like the Short Shorts run a smidge big so, if you're between sizes I'd default down. I'm usually a 6, took a medium and am now awaiting smalls. Fingers crossed my badonkadonk passes the size down muster...

Kindness of bff Kimba for confirming my Island Company as potential source of a great linen short suspicion with her firsthand account of looting their Naples store. KNEW I should have tagged along on that trip she took with my sister Julie...XXOO

  4. You are the BEST!!! I have been scouting the world for the perfect navy short and I will give these a try!! xoxo mpm

  5. Ive been on the hunt for a pair of short shorts with that side angle pocket- 70's vibe, and I can't find them anywhere, and I want white. They must be white, wondering if these white linen ones pictured will fit the bill. HEre s hoping!

  6. I love these! Caribe for me and camel for my sister. Thanks.

  7. Can we talk about the Island Company's dresses???? The Pink Mykonos Dress is the cutest ever. I <3 you for introducing me to this little company.

    Happy PTHs!!!!

  8. How fun! Thank you, Alice, for sharing this line with us as I have never heard of it. Might be perfect for the honeymoon!

  14. This reminds me of that I so need to start on a serious leg work out... 3 children, a spanx addiction and love of red wine later.... I prefer to go for the walking short look. Loved catching up on your blog today darling, Coryanne

  15. Dresses are also great for those fierce girls who dare to destroy summer barbeques without having to worry about their gut hanging out.
