Party Pants

Jenna Lyons dubbed these pants “party pants”. (Jenna’s current picks are here).  I could not agree more.  They are so fun and have this cool, modern seventies vibe.  I feel like entertaining in a a sunken living room with a wet bar and serving tropical drinks. This may be my favorite piece in the whole Ratti “Into the Wild” collection.  The pants are linen and a great cut.  They have been sold out, but keep popping back.  As of blog press time, there were a few sizes available.  It may be worth a bit of jcrew.com stalking if at first you get the dreaded “We’re sorry. This item has been so popular, it has sold out.”

Into the Wild and Off the Shoulder

J. Crew issued a second challenge this week to wear floral for a week.  The first challenge was to wear gingham five days in a row.  Two of my looks from that challenge are in this post and this post.  I chose the “Into the Wild Print” and went for it.  I was not sure about the off-the-shoulder look until I tried it on.  It is so fresh and summery.  As I mentioned in this post, I used to have to wear a Hawaiian print dress to my high school hostess job at the Chart House and was not thrilled about it.  If this dress had been an option then, I would have wanted to work seven days a week and would have been happy to wear it out after work.  It is easy to wear and the print has such rich colors and a great jungle vibe. The espadrilles are so comfortable and I love the gold.  They are quickly becoming my go-to summer sandal. I have worn them non-stop since purchasing them (always the sign of a good purchase).
