Cargo pants

Yes! It’s the first day of spring today! It feels wonderful here in Atlanta though I have to admit March 20th seems to have arrived extremely quickly. We’ve just had an amazing weekend in Nashville where Poppy was competing in an AllStar Cheer competition so, after a long drive back yesterday, we’re having a lazy Sunday with a late lunch out at our favorite BBQ joint.

I happen to be wearing some of my favorite pants today – they are best described as a harem cargo pant. They were from Zara a couple of years ago and each time I wear them I wonder why I don’t wear them more often. They are really comfortable and the shoe choice is endless. They are easy to dress up or down and wear day to evening. I think they are the perfect spring trouser – lighter weight than jeans and they pair perfectly with flip flops and sandals.

Here are my picks from lower end high street to high end designer.

In the US The Gap is currently offering 2 day free shipping PLUS 40% off using code FASTBUNNY. I have just ordered these tencel joggers, they also come in navy and black.

Not cargo pants, but the color is similar at least – I need to throw this jumpsuit in the mix. I have it and adore it and with the 40% off right now it would be foolish to miss out. I love it for traveling in and it is also available in grey and black.

I love how louche these girlfriend chinos look – perfect paired with sun bleached espadrilles. They are wonderfully soft too.

Going now with the current trend of the crop kick flare. Sometimes I can’t be faffed with rolling up my pants – or my OCD gets the better of me and I spend far too long rolling and unrolling to get each leg even! These would save me hours over a year 🙂

Now onto Mango – so many choices with these being my absolute favorite – a great length and I LOVE the pockets and the wide leg.

Now I admit I would style these differently but with simple leather flip flops and a plain white tank I think these would be the perfect vacation trouser.

These are more of a culotte and I love the tie waistband.

If you have never used Shopbop.com I urge you to check them out. You can check out with your Amazon Prime membership and get free speedy delivery, plus free returns and they offer a huge variety of brands.

These utilitarian Etienne Marcel pants have a slouchy, cropped silhouette with distressing. I LOVE them.

This pair is cuffed at the ankle if you prefer less harem and more jogger style of pant. They are the NSF cargo pants with a hint of fading.

Another cuffed version from Velvet, with a tie waist – comfort and style.

These slouchy Faith Connexion cargo pants in classic camo are fabulous, in the sale and still really pricey!!

Just love these twill Current / Elliot pants with a slouchy, military-inspired profile. The crossover front is fabulous.

Finishing with my favorite, which are very similar to the Zara pair I am wearing. These slouchy Citizens of Humanity pants have a military-inspired look with a button fly.

While we are talking about cargo pants I want to share these fab leather flip flops from The Gap. I love wearing a very simple sandal with cargos, but sometimes a rubber flip flop is just too casual. These flip flops are available in silver, gold, tan, black, blue and pink. I love them all.

So here I am today on a chillier than desired first day of spring!
