Lei ChicWe've got some good news for you.

If you're reading this, that means your computer wasn't affected by the global Internet shutdown that involved the FBI, millions of computers and a nasty piece of malware.

Phew. That was a close one.

Now, even better news. Petite denim designer Allison Izu has teamed up with Collins & 8th's Maida Montemayor on a brand new collaboration of super cute denim shorts, made right here in Hawaii.

Just think, it's Monday. You've had a hard morning filled with virus scans. No one would think twice if you took an hour (or two) for lunch and drove down to Collins & 8th for a little retail therapy.

Lei Chic Once there, you'll take in the collaboration's two styles of vintage-inspired shorts: one with kick pleats, the other with curved hemline (think '80s gym shorts, but way cooler) and fabric tabs. Both feature bright Aloha print pocket inserts and back labels, a light wash denim, and sit low on the hips for a flirty, beachy feel.

Feel free to try them on, even if you're not 5'4" or under; with Izu's detail-oriented design aesthetic and Montemayor's casual yet stylish flair, these shorts look great on all leg lengths.

Either style you choose, you'll be living in these jeans all summer long.

Trust us. There's no better way to beat the Monday blues.

$98, Allison Izu denim shorts, exclusive to Collins & 8th, 560 Pensacola St., Suites 4 and 5. For more information, call (808) 593-9696.
