Easy Summer Pants

During one of my many visits to Banana Republic over the last month (yes, I have many weaknesses) I found these fabulous linen pants. They are a blend with a bit of stretch, but as you can see they do still fall victim to linen's greatest fault, excessive wrinkles.

As far as sizing goes, size down. Maybe even two sizes, as I found they stretched a bit after wearing. They also come in three lengths, as well as petite. I probably should have opted for petite or even the short length, but since I bought them in the store and decided when I tried them on that I liked them as they were, I stopped myself from ordering three other options 'just to see'.

The other new piece I'm sharing here is the pair of blue and white ceramic earrings. When I walked into one of my favorite thrift stores I was surprised to find a huge influx of jewelry. Apparently a shop went out of business and donated all their remaining inventory. After much deliberation, and talking myself out of pieces which felt very similar to things I already have, I left with two pairs of earrings, priced at $4 each. Hopefully I wont be tempted to go back for a third!

  11. I just love linen pants for summer. They are so chic and the cropped style is so trendy and fun!


  12. Those earrings are so cute and the pants look like a great buy for warmer weather! You did well, I can always justify buying more accessories, I don't think I could have walked away from the massive amounts of reduced items, haha!

    Hope your week is going well :) It's so cold and wintery here!

  14. Love this outfit! So perfect for summer, the colours work perfectly together to create such a lovely look! Thanks for sharing.


  15. The wide leg pants are perfect for Summer!

  16. You can forget about those constricting jeans during the summer and allow yourself to try different styles that only the summer months of the year can produce

  17. Very classic and stylish. Love the whole look!


  18. That's why knowing how to choose a pair is essential in getting the most of your sessions

  19. These days, I really don't know how I lived before I started readding wide legged pants to my wardrobe. I mean, really - so many years spent in skinny jeans, even in the summer, and for what? There are so many styles out there. While I probably wouldn't go for blue, I love how this pair looks with your white top and shoes. I'd love to put together a similar outfit with a beige wide legged crop pant. Now I just have to find the perfect pair ;)

  20. Okay these look so comfy. I would totally rock these.

  21. Love the pant & you look smart. Thanks for posting such a wonderful post. Cheers!

  24. Love the pants! Bummer on the wrinkles! But still, I don't always find it easy to find a good pair of linen pants so they're worth it! The color is great too!

  25. Fabulous pants Lydia! I guess the wrinkles come with the fact that it's linen :) this outfit looks so elegant yet laid back.
