It has been a while since I shared a post on what I really wore. So today, I thought I would focus on an outfit with gaucho pants. I have ended up with several pair of gaucho pants because they are easy, cool, and figure-flattering.

I don’t think I am alone when I say that I am over the skinny craze. Who wants to actually “feel” every square inch of their pants when they are wearing them? Yes, I like to look put together and stylish, but there has to be a better way to do it!

Gaucho Pants, What I Really Wore



Gaucho pants - What I Really Wore

Gaucho pants can balance your proportions well. The gradual widening of the leg balances out those who may be pear-shaped.  In my case, the width of the bottom matches the width of my shoulders, which creates more of an hourglass silhouette. While the length continues to draw the eye up and down.

Keep these tips in mind when choosing gaucho pants.

  • The top of the pants should fit well and lie close to the body; otherwise, the pants will add visual bulk.
  • Make sure the gaucho pants end only a few inches above the ankle to avoid cutting off the legs, which can make your legs look short and stubby.

I am crazy about these shoes. In fact, I like them so much that I have the same shoe in four different colors. I’ve heard of other people buying the same item in a range of colors, but this is a first for me. It all started with a black pair that I bought to replace a favorite pair that literally fell apart. Then, I came across a good sale at Dillard’s and bought two more because I couldn’t decide between the colors. Finally, I was at Dillard’s Outlet a few weeks ago and came across the fourth and final pair for way less than any of the others.

And, I must admit I wear them all the time. I love the look of a sandal mixed with the covered toe, which easily carries the shoe into Florida Fall. It’s the perfect shoe for put-together casual. Unfortunately, the Dillard’s style is sold out, but I found some cute ones here.*

Trust God

I believe my greatest takeaway from 2020 will be to trust God no matter what things look like. We’ve all waded through some deep waters this year. Typically, we filter our life experiences through a lens of the past…how did I do it then and what lessons did I learn.

But this year is one of unchartered territory… there are no past lessons to help us make sense of current circumstances.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3: 5-6

Thankfully, we have a God who knows the end from the beginning. I can trust God to lead me as I live in obedience to him…he will make crooked paths straight for me and for you.
