Happy Valentine’s Day, ladies! Well, we’re halfway through February in record time. But February is one month I don’t mind seeing come-and-go, lickety-split. It’s my least favorite month only because I am OVER winter. Over the past week or so, I've been trying to lighten and brighten your wardrobe and day. And today is no different!
It was a gorgeous day in New Orleans on Monday with the sun shining and temps in the 60s. Spring is on its way! I hope you’re catching all the behind-the-scenes on Instagram Stories. I’ve set sail on the mighty Mississippi on the American Queen and the trip is off to a fantastic start!
Tuesday, we stop in Nottoway for a plantation tour and Valentine’s Day lunch. Tonight, I’m dining at the Captain’s Table! Can’t wait.
Today, I'm going to try and lighten and brighten your wardrobe with a pair of wide-leg pants styled 2 ways
I have 2 outfits plus 2 alternative stylings to help you get transition into Spring

(A few reviews mentioned they stretched or bagged after several hours. They do have stretch but I didn’t think they bagged out or lost their shape. Sometimes, I completely agree with reviews, and other times I’m scratching my head…)
Navy and white is a fantastic color combination once spring arrives, and if you add stripes to the mix you’ll be feeling quite nauti!
The first OOTD is casual through and through with a striped tee (similar here and here) and white denim jacket popped over the wide-leg pants. A denim jacket is a wardrobe staple and is on style repeat all spring and summer.
The second OOTD features the navy pants again. This time I added a simple cotton sweater (similar here and here) and a striped tweed blazer from Ann Taylor. The cropped blazer is the perfect complement to wide-leg pants as it adds balance and proportion to the outfit. The tweed blazer also comes in Petite.
I love the bracelet sleeve length that gives the opportunity to show off a stack of bracelets. The metallic flats are back in action and look perfect with the wide-leg pants.
