white pants can be tricky to wear and they might not be on your radar screen quite yet as they’re typically reserved for warmer weather. but, hey, Georgia is flirting with seventy degrees as of late so i’ll go easy on myself and jump the gun. the fit of these opens in a new window pull-on pants is so flattering with a wide waistband and hidden front panel that has a tummy-smoothing effect. add a gorgeous opens in a new windowsilver heart necklace, a jaunty opens in a new windowscarf tied around my neck, opens in a new windowblack wedge sandals from Jeffrey Campbell, and a opens in a new windowsleek handbag from Coach that can be carried as a clutch or crossbody bag. didn’t i tell you it was easy to put together a chic outfit that keeps your stripes looking modern?

        Once again you look great in this outfit. I have tried the neck scarf so many times but I feel a bit like I’m wearing a uniform.
        I remove it and wear a necklace.
        Wish I could get comfortable with a neck scarf.

    Hi Beth,
    I can put that outfit together from my closet. I can also do it in navy. For some silly reason I thought I would have to give up my nautical wardrobe when we sold our sailboat but anyone can wear nautical right? There’s always the yacht club and the pontoon boat Thanks for the scarf and necklace idea I wouldn’t have thought of that Sweater blazers are so much more comfortable. I have four. I wish there was a Nordstrom closer than an hour away but with covid rising in Michigan I’m not going anywhere

    I love each item that you put together for your featured look today. The fit on the white pants is just what I’m looking for. I feel that to keep a white pant looking sharp, they should not be snug fitting.
    This is one of my favorite styles that you’ve modeled! That knit blazer would be so versatile too. I have a knit denim jacket that I love. You really can’t tell that it is a knit at a glance.
    And yes, to a gorgeous, striped T-shirt!

    • and the best part of this knit blazer is that it can easily go with workout clothes or a jazzy outfit. win/win!
