April 10th, Cargos with Some Color

 Today I’m wearing my cargo skinnys with a cute bright tank and my blue blazer- which is all tied together with this colorful belt, that I’m wearing backwards!

It may be a little strange, but I wanted to really show the colors on the belt, and when it is on the normal way, you can only see the leather buckle.

So I figured, turn it around, the jacket hides the buckle part, and now you can see the colors!

For my before picture I’m showing my old cargos AGAIN! I know I should donate these to Goodwill, but there are just so perfect for comparing to the skinny cargos that I have to keep them. The loose, baggy fit isn’t current and looks sloppy.

In the before picture, I kept the tank white- just to compare how different the bright tank under the blazer looks. Then to break up the solid pink, I added a necklace.  Finally, for my shoes- I chose these off white wedge heels- they are perfect for spring- and being a wedge- very comfy!

The belt is on backwards- and looking at the picture it isn't fitting quite right, but maybe if I loosened it a tiny bit it might fit better.
Sadie wanted to be in the picture!

Cargos: Michael Kors, Tank: Gap, Blazer: Land’s End, Shoes: Nordstrom, Necklace: Gift

  1. I found your blog through the WIWW posts at the Pleated Poppy blog. I have to say I love your style. I’ve only managed to read a handful of your posts so far, but I like what I see!! I am a 40 year old stay at home mom of 3 girls with a closet full of clothes from my working days that I need to work into my current wardrobe of casual clothes. You’ve given me some inspiration for sure. Thanks!

  2. I also love your blog and it’s really helped me. One question for you though. Obviously, skinny pants are in style. And you wear them really well! 🙂 But a lot of moms (like me) have a hard time pulling them off, or even fitting into them. What do you suggest for non-skinny moms?

    1. Thank you for the compliment!
      I do love my skinny jeans/ pants- and I honestly think that is the trend right now- no matter what your size. I feel as though you can rock skinny jeans at any size- as long as you remember 3 important things: 1) balance is key- if you go skinny on bottom, go big on top and 2) dark colors are slimming, 3) cover your bum

      If you really feel uncomfortable wearing skinny jeans- consider trying straight leg- these are also very slimming and flattering on all sizes.

      If you are a new reader, you may not have seen the posts that I did with my older sister. She is a size 10 or 12 and wears skinnys and looks fabulous. Here is a link to one of the posts with her in it!

      She is wearing a large, loose top over her red skinny jeans. Her attitude is to be extremely confident in whatever you’re wearing- and no matter what size you are- you will look radiant and beautiful!

      Good luck and thanks so much for writing. I’ll be posting some more on skinny jeans for curvier girls- so please keep checking in!
      By the way- don’t give up on finding a good fit. Erin’s are from Anthropologie and they were pricey, but so cute. If you can only afford 1 pair I would recommend going for very dark denim. You could wear these every day with a different top!

  3. You and I dress very similarly. I am wearing olive and fuchsia in my post, too only in reverse. The pants are pink.

    I think I may have those same loose pants that you are wearing on the right. Are they Banana Republic? The cargos look so flattering on you!


    1. Yes, we definitely have very similar tastes! I just spent 30 minutes looking at some of your older posts- and found so many cute outfits that I will totally copy! I am so glad I found you!!

  4. Cute as always! PS Megan I bought the pump flats the other day at Macy’s (only mine are solid black) and OMG they ARE comfy! they’re awesome.

    And to the other poster: I’m a good size 14 (big butt mostly, not wide, just big out back) and I can totally wear skinny jeans, in fact the whole boot cut jean thing never ever ever worked for me. Wide leg with flats? Nope, I look utterly silly. But skinny – yep. I can do that. So I think size matters less than body type. Just stay away from painted on unless you’re under 25. haha.

      1. THanks for clarifying, I did wonder what you meant! Ha! Aren’t they the best shoe- so comfy and so much cuter than a regular tennis shoe!
        Thanks for commenting!
