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 ūüôā

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!

Fall favorites

Fall in Atlanta is stunning and it has begun in earnest this week with cooler morning temperatures, clear skies, and warm sunny afternoons. It’s bliss! Still warm enough to get the legs out and yet cool enough for a jacket – my perfect combination!

I recently received this dress and absolutely love it. I had my eye on it all summer but I had bought the longer Riviera dress instead. This one has pockets and a lovely drape at the front – I’m wearing a medium.

The sunglasses were an absolute bargain off TheOutnet.com – I LOVE Oliver Peoples and my prescription glasses are Oliver Peoples too. I find it hard to resist when I see a pair discounted. These are clear acetate with metal arms and a super fun way to add some interest to an outfit.

The Everlane Street Shoes are a great combination of shoe and skate shoe/sneaker. A little dressier for day to night, being leather. I took my usual US 8.5 and they are perfect and I have wide feet – so I wouldn’t advise sizing up as the website suggests.

While I’m here I’m still getting great Fall sale emails –

ShopBop.com have 25% off with INTHEFAMILY25 (certain exclusions apply)

Shoescribe.com have 30% off with FRIENDS15 (certain brands are excluded Рdamn those Chloé Susannas!)

Madewell have 40% off all final sale styles with EXTRA40

Enjoy!!
