Love and Valentines – Wonderful WednesdayFebruary 10, 2016
Sharing what I really wore – patterned pants.
I’m keeping it real this week with another installment of “What I Really Wore.” A few weeks ago I taught a reading workshop to a group of Filipino teachers from across the Manila area. On days like this I like to be casual, but still maintain a professional look.
I picked up these H&M print pants around Christmas and I am crazy about them! I thought these would be just perfect for the day.
Patterned Pants – How To Wear
The thought of patterned pants can be a little intimidating for some, but they don’t have to be. When it comes to patterned pants, it’s important to keep everything else pretty simple. Three quarter length jersey shirts are great staple pieces because they are comfortable to wear, but they also make you look polished and put together.
Notice that I used the partial tuck-in for this outfit. This keeps the front of the outfit tidy, while softening the back view by eliminating such an “expanse” of pattern 😉 Then, I used a slim black leather belt.
Add some Aerosole black wedges and I’m ready to go! I found some similar ones on clearance at Famous Footwear for 64% off.
I kept the accessories pretty simple for this look by going with one of my favorites…stainless steel. I received this stainless steel Fossil necklace as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago.
Have a fabulous week!
