2 Ways to Wear // Printed Pants

Accessories: Bracelets: Frock Candy & ℅ Brighthouse Baubles / Earrings: Frock Candy / Sunnies: RayBan

Good morning dolls,

As you saw on Monday, I wore these pants a totally different way with a bright pink top and black heeled sandals. I absolutely love the black and white trend and how you can wear it literally a million different ways. I like to balance the look out: if I’m wearing bright shoes, I’ll opt for a simple top. If I’m wearing a bright top or bright jewelry, I’ll keep the shoes simple. I absolutely love the way these red heels popped against my outfit.

Style tip: Opt for a sandal with a thinner ankle strap. Ankle straps elongate legs, make them look skinnier, and they’re ultra sexy for date night!

Good morning dolls,

Printed pants have seriously become my number one staple. I used to hate printed pants because I have muscular thighs and I always thought they made me look so much bigger than I really am. But, in the past year, I’ve overcome that fear and gave in to the (fabulous) trend. I’ve fallen in love with printed pants. The Old Navy ones I’m wearing (and also wore in another color here & on Lou What Wear) are seriously the most comfortable pants I own. They fit like a glove & don’t shrink (which is always fear of mine!) Plus, they’re insanely affordable at $30. When I spotted this black and white pair, I had to have them. I actually passed on them the first time I saw them and regretted it all night until I went back the next day to grab the last pair!! I love a staple that you can literally wear with every color.

What’s your take on printed pants?

Outfit: Top: Francesca’s {identical} / Shorts: Frock Candy / Shoes: Steve Madden {identical on sale}

Accessories: Necklaces: Frock Candy / Bracelets: Frock Candy, Francesca’s / Ring: Francesca’s / Sunnies: RayBan / Wristlet: ℅ Spartina 449 / Lips: Covergirl “SpellBound”

Good morning dolls,

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend (and are enjoying your day off today!) I wore this outfit yesterday on our way back home. We spent the entire weekend in north Louisiana with my family for the holiday weekend and headed back yesterday to go back to work. I found my shorts at Frock Candy and absolutely fell in love. I wanted something a little festive and these shorts scream Memorial Day (and even July 4th!) I’m usually not a “shorts” girl but I’ve been trying to break out of the norm and try new things. They’re super comfy and actually feel like pajamas except they look way cuter.

Oh, and let’s not forget my amazing Spartina 449 Folio phone wristlet. When I first saw the designs, I fell in love with the entire collection. It was hard to pick just one, but I chose this one because it goes with a lot more items that are currently in my closet and the design feels so tropical. I only wish I had a matching bag! I’ve been searching for a wristlet that would hold my phone. I absolutely love this one and it’s under $50! Check out more designs, here.
