a lovely living

Hey guys! It’s quite a hectic week around here. Mostly good (get togethers, dinner with long-distance friends, projects in the works, volunteer time) mixed with the unexpected (a broken arm and cast for my eldest paired with a fever which will lead to who knows what). Life is a constant roller coaster isn’t it? My goal being to remain in the seat, buckled in, with an array of expressions on my face ;)

This past Monday on Instagram, I shared four ways to style my new Everlane wide-leg cropped pants. I know they can seem like an intimidating piece or maybe one that you think would only get worn occasionally, but I’m here to say that those are surely misconceptions. I could have gone on and on with various ways to style them, but today we’ll start with four.

Let me first say a few things about these pants, the first being that they come in a range of colors to choose from. I had a hard time narrowing down which color to start with, but I’m so happy I went with Ochre (which I’d call camel). I didn’t own any bottoms in this color so it was a perfect void to fill. They are high-waisted, made of cotton with the perfect amount of stretch (3% elastane). The pockets are very flattering paired with the high-waist and the wide leg. You really need to see them on to understand! I’ve paired them below with everything from an everyday tee and sneaks to a business causal look with a tucked in blouse. I tried to cover a range of looks/styles in an effort to show you their versatility, so hopefully they will serve as some inspiration for you.

Here’s an everyday look for me. I love this soft color combo and adore the casual chic look that comes off by pairing my Converse with the outfit. (t-shirt / cardigan).

I’ve already shared this leopard top on here, and I’ll say again, I think you all need it in your closet! It’s basically a thin sweatshirt that will add interest to any outfit. And remember, leopard makes the best neutral. With the high-waisted bottoms I paired my slightly cropped denim jacket with them. If you’ve followed for a while, you know I’ve had this one for years and can’t recommend it enough. It’s more of a splurge item, but totally worth it for the quality and the amount of years you’ll get use out of it!

This look is great for heading out to meetings or for a business casual office look. This button up is a warm weather staple at a steal of a price and this sweater blazer is such a great spring layer!

There are a whole range of blouses you could pair with these pants, but tucking them in will be key to pulling the look together. You’ve also seen me style this top before here (it came from the Ralph Lauren outlet if you’re lucky enough to live near one), but here’s another one that’s similar.

If you’d like to see me discuss each outfit a bit more, I’ve saved my try-on to my highlights over on Instagram and I promise this won’t be the last time you see these pants! If you have any questions about anything here, feel free to ask!
