I have a confession: At heart, I'm a jeans-and-a-t-shirt kind of girl.
Granted my jeans are high waisted and skinny, and my t-shirts are made of luxe fabrics... but still, I'm a sucker for the classic combo.
I think the reason I love it so much is that there is so much freedom in the simplicity of the look. You can really interpret the pieces into anything you want! You could go with a classic pair of blue jeans and a black tank top. You could go edgy with a pair of black jeans with zipper details and a white long sleeved shirt. Or, you can amp it up with a pair of printed jeans, a low cut v-neck tee and punchy accessories like I did today.
I didn't expect to become as obsessed with the Camo Cadet Cargo Pant when I saw them online. Within five seconds of ripping the package open, I became obsessed. The fabric is soft and stretchy, the seaming down the middle is slimming and adds a curve - and can we talk about the copper detailing? Gorgeous!
I bought them because wanted something different from my usual blue and black. After purchasing yet another teeny tiny neon bag, I knew the perfect pairing for it would be camouflage. Camo is not traditionally a summer print, but the fluorescent yellow bag and matching shoes really make it work.
To add a bit of interest (and to show off the gorgeous copper zip detail), I did a half tuck with my super soft Sharp V Neck Top. I wore this out to tea downtown with Husband - we'd been putting in long hours at work and needed a mid-day reprieve. We sat on the patio and sipped our drinks, exchanging funny work stories. I loved that I was not only comfortable, but looked stylish enough that our conversation was interrupted about five different times with girls asking me where I got my outfit. That's how you know you've got a winner!
Until next time, stay chic!
