pants in the summertime

normally a sundress girl, i've really found myself drawn to printed pants this summer. sundresses with no layers just aren't as much fun to wear! i know, this is super counterintuitive, probably. who knows. up until this year, i've only ever owned 1 or 2 pairs of jeans at a time. and even then, i never ever chose to wear them over a dress or skirt. but now, all of a sudden, dresses and skirts are looking boring and jeans offer way more options. this will probably/definitely change when fall weather hits and i can bring my beloved tights out of storage, but until then.. i'll keep loving my weird jeans collection.

i've been having so much fun with my floral pants lately! i had to share these pictures of me wearing them with my favorite shirt. :)

these shoes have existed in my wardrobe since high school. i should definitely replace them.. it's not like they've worn well or anything, but no other black flats ever compare to how cute they are. i'm just so picky about my shoes. :(

i added a new pair of pants that i'm obsessing over to my wardrobe recently, too..

i actually can't even put into words how excited i am to finally own mint jeans! that are comfy! and not high-waisted! and affordable! i'm just so in love. i've worn them 3 out of the 5 days since i got them. it's fun seeing what matches with them (spoiler alert: it seems that i think EVERYTHING matches with them).

i'm also really obsessed with this shirt. austin's brother, bentley, works at a local screen printing company, and hooks our group of friends up with really cool shirts all of the time. this one's extra special because it's austin's band, virginia werewoolf, and it's the only one of it's kind. ;) i could honestly probably say that 90% of my tshirts are c/o bentley, haha. i really, really love all of them. dressing up band tshirts is one of the funnest things to do.

outfit one:
necklace: anthropologie (in store)
shirt: modcloth (available on curator)
cardigan: american eagle (the same one in all of my posts ever)
jeans: insight
shoes: steve madden, circa 2006

outfit two:
necklace: catbird (no longer available)
tshirt: band tshirt, c/o bentley & austin
jeans: bullhead
shoes: converse (i just spent 45 minutes oohing and ahhing over some of the printed converse they have on their website.. geez)



  1. Ahh, those mint jeans are adorable! My goal is to find a good and affordable pair before the summer ends. ^^
    Anyways, I think I still prefer my sundresses / skirts in the summer only because they keep me so cool. But the floral jeans are adorable, so I can definitely understand your preference for them now!
