It ain’t often that you’ll find me wearing white pants. Most of the white pants I’ve tried on throughout my life have been completely see-through. Is it just me, or is there a shortage of non-see-through white pants out there? Thankfully, these cozy, stretchy Old Navy corduroy pants don’t have that problem.
I love a good pair of blue jeans, but I think it’s nice every so often to mix up our staple garments. Case in point: switch out jeans for corduroy.
I like that this tee-shirt has some cool little details on it that make it stand out. And the cutout sleeves add a dash of sex appeal to an otherwise suburban look. You know I like that sort of thing.
Taking a casual outfit and pairing it with a nice pair of heels can really raise the dress up factor. Or I could easily throw on a pair of Chucks and keep everything else the same to completely change this look. I should have brought a pair with me to show both ways of styling this look, but I’m not enough of a pro at fashion blogging to think of these ideas before the actual photos are taken.
Those of you who know me know that I almost never remember to wear accessories. It drives my mother crazy more than it does me, but one thing I’m almost always found wearing anklets. I purchased this one in Thailand last year and I love it just as much as when I got it.
Pants: The Gap
Shoes: Jessica Simpson (She makes the most comfortable pumps I’ve worn outside of Christian Louboutin. Yeah, I own more of her than him).
Shirt: Some place no one cares about.
What do you think? Would you wear more white pants if they weren’t mostly see-through? Do you wear them anyway, lol? What do you think about cutout sleeves and a bit of skin peeking out?
Footnote: Tonight at 8pm on Instagram Live I’ll be discussing and reading from portions of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet! So, if you haven’t joined me on Instagram, now’s a great time. Hope to see you there!
