kicking off thursday with a pair of paisley pants. if you’ve followed the blog for any length of time you’ll remember that i have at least one pair of fancy pants on hand. why? because fancy pants are just darn fun to wear! and isn’t that what summer is all about? easy-breezy days when we’re less buttoned-up?
paisley is an iconic print with a teardrop-shaped motif. its pattern originated in Persia and became popular in western culture in the 18th and 19th century thanks to the silk road that allowed trade from the east to the west. although the pattern is Persian the paisley print was named after a town in the west of Scotland known as a center of textiles where the pattern was produced.
this blue paisley pant goes well with denim. so out came a favorite denim shirt with a western twist that i wore as a third layer. it emphasizes the casual attitude of this ootd yet adds polish. a white tee is a closet staple we all have folded in our closet. and they’re perfect for any hot summer day. add an on-trend circle handbag, ballet flats (old, similar here), and this outfit is done!
the paisley pants have a side-zip which provides a sleek front. stretch denim fabric lets this ankle pant move with you throughout the day without sagging.
can you believe how quickly this week is zipping by? friday is just about here. and we all know who shows up on friday. we have a special post planned with the Wimbledon finals in mind. we may not have watched all the matches thus far, but you gotta love the finals! the roster isn’t complete yet with the semi-finals being played as i type but the ladies final is saturday. the men play on sunday. game. set. match.
