Tried and Truly Addictive: Bop Basics Istanbul Shorts

I've been living in these military-style shorts lately and don't anticipate switching things up anytime soon. They are really one of the most comfortable, easy-to-throw-on pieces I own, made of the softest cotton you can imagine and with a really loose, slouchy fit that's perfect for this heat. The details are very much in keeping with their army-inspired origins: roomy pockets, snap buttons, little buckles, and tabs at the waist. To keep from looking completely rough and tumble, I've been pairing mine with patent leather sandals and lacy blouses.
