my favorite pair of pants is hands-down a pair of blue jeans. even as a teenager i had a pair of beloved button front levi’s that i wore the bejeebers out of all through high school. sadly, i had to retire them my freshman year in university after i gained the notorious ‘freshman ten’. but, my second favorite pair of pants is none other than the low-key chinos. practical and unassuming these beauties are the perfect match with a well-fitted blazer or crewneck sweater. ballet flats look marvelous with chinos, but why not add a pair of heels for the unexpected? the jeweled encrusted sweater is all the embellishment this ootd needs. well, maybe a little bling with the belt. oh chinos, how i love thee.
