it’s true; i never met a chino i didn’t like. these pants are all-stars in my book. versatile and durable they can take you to the beach or endure a day of errands. your pick. or top them off with a blazer and you’ve transformed into business casual in no time flat. today, my white chinos have been leopardized. (yes, that’s a word in j.crew’s book.) but i’m still savoring summer with a decidedly cool color palette. pink has always been a go-to color of mine, but a few key accessories elevate this look to tomboy chic. one of my style tricks is to balance feminine with masculine. think of it as a yin and yang thing. see how the leopard (cheetah) loafers and belt keep this ootd grounded? but the tassel necklace and pink handbag give this look a pop of whimsy. it may be hard to tell from the photos, but the earrings and watch are also pink as well as my lipstick to reinforce the femininity. and, yes, i am growing the mop out a bit. i’ve been adding length ever since it was chopped into a short pixie way back in january. we’ll see just where our hair adventures take us!
