Striped Pants

In Fashion, Outfit of the day by wR23Fs2Sqi68 Comments

Well guys, another birthday has passed me by and I have to admit I always feel a bit sad when my bday roles around. Because it falls in the middle of the month, it’s always a reminder that summer is coming to an end. And it also means I’m another year older and even though I look young, I have officially said goodbye to my thirties and hello to 40. Crazy! But with every year that passes, I feel more blessed for all the loved ones I have in my life❤️

Anyhow, I do love everything about fall until that first snowfall but it’s always sad to say goodbye to summer. And maybe it’s because we have such cold winters here in the prairies. However, that quickly passes once I start receiving the September issues in the mail and then I get excited about fall fashion. Lol! I’ll admit it, I’ve already picked up a few fall pieces. And I’m contemplating picking up these boots, they look kinda fun.
Let’s talk about these striped pants and how ridiculously comfortable they are. These have been my go to pants lately because they have a great laid back feel to them. But the slim tailored fit makes them perfectly appropriate for both the office or a simple casual chic weekend look. Did I mention they are on sale too? 🙂

      Right! It’s like you start counting the days until it’s fall Enjoy your vacation!

  4. I love your beautiful outfit; the pants are sort of androgynous in style and so, they are styled wonderfully with that feminine white blouse. By the way, don’t worry – despite what we are seeing in stores, it is still summer! hope that your birthday is filled with happiness. You are gorgeous!

      Thank you! Age is a state of mind! Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself! Lol

  5. You look amazing, I can’t believe your 40, I would have guessed you were in your twenties! Love this look! Those pants are fabulous!

  6. I hope you had the most amazing birthday, beautiful, and I think we all feel that way after we hit 25, haha. Then, we need to remind ourselves that age is truly just a number and it’s all a matter of how we feel! Speaking of feelings, girl, I feel you when it comes to fall fashion, I LOVE it, i’s my favorite actually. Then, like you, I want to skip the whole snow part because let’s face it, it’s just too cold and who wants to maneuver around heaps of snow and slush to get around! So, if we could skip from fall to spring, I’d be one happy girl! As for your outfit, I love those striped pants and love the way you’ve styled them with white blouse, so summer chic! Thanks so much for sharing,b beauty, and I hope you have the best week ahead!
