{CLOTHES I LOVE} PIXIE PANTS



As I branch out and share a few fashion posts here and there with you, I thought I'd tell you about some of my favorite things in the closet that get worn over and over again.  (On a side note, I hate to call these "fashion" posts, because I'm NOT a fashion blogger, just a Mom that likes stylish, cute, comfortable clothes.  I thought you might want a glimpse of how I keep things comfortable, yet a little more on the pulled-together side.  When you look good, you feel good and more productive, right?  Not that I don't have my fair share of yoga pant days...)  

I'm loving Pixie Pants from Old Navy and am finding them to be super versatile.  I can wear them year round, just changing out my shoe and top choice.  They have quite a bit of stretch, so I love that they're as comfortable as leggings but have a more polished look.  

In winter, the legs are slim enough that they're great to tuck into tall boots.  I prefer wearing longer tops with them, but they're also darling with t-shirts or a tucked in blouse for you girls who are more slender.  :)

Do you have a trench coat?  I have several different colors and they're perfect for layering.  You can add a sweater underneath for colder days or a t-shirt for a warmer (rainy) spring day.  It's a versatile staple to add to your wardrobe.  There are a few cute ones here and here,  but keep an eye out for bargains as the spring styles hit the racks, this one came from Sam's Club several years ago!

These are the perfect pants to wear with almost any type of shoe.  They are right at ankle length (or sometimes a bit shorter if you're taller), so booties work just as well as tall boots.  Here I paired them with a long sleeve t-shirt and a colorful kimono for a totally comfortable yet put together look.  



I wear these through the summer, too, with my leopard sneakers or flip flops.  Obviously, with the print of these they were fun to wear at Christmas, too.

They're so great with wedges, too.  See? They work for any season really, just change the shoes and top!

The styles available change often, so although these that I've shown probably aren't current, there is a variety of solids and cute prints available now, many at great deals!

One tip for fitting- I go back and forth between 2 sizes of pants depending on brands, but I buy the smaller size in these.  They will be very snug when you first put them on, but they stretch out quite a bit within an hour or so of wearing them.  

There are also long pixies available now if you want a little more length.  I'm trying a pair of those next! P.S.- Use code SAVEALOT at Old Navy checkout to save at least 25%!

  1. Such cute inspiration. I haven't worn pants other than jeans or black leggings in SO LONG. Actually I have one pair of bright green wide leg linen pants that I love. But I have become such a jeans wearer since having kids! I'll have to check these out - I do love patterned pants but not always the way they look on wider hips. Maybe with a longer top though :)

  2. My daughter bought several pairs to wear when she needed a bit more polished look doing some of her therapy sessions. She loves them. And yes, they do stretch after wearing. I may need to pick up some for myself. They look and fit great, regardless of whether you are thin or have a few more curves.

    1. You are NOT too old Julie!! I really believe these work for anyone, just might need to vary the length of the top like I do. ;)

  4. Super cute outfits Jennifer and I'm so thrilled you are doing these kinds of posts now! I need that red trench....it's my son's school color and I'm always looking for outwear to wear to games! The pixie pants are really versatile when you consider they can be tucked into boots with a tunic or longer top. You have some fun ones!

  9. I'm really enjoying your occasional fashion posts. For reference, would you be willing to share your size with us? I love these looks you post, but I have a feeling I can't pull them off with my 5'9" size 14. Either way, keep them coming (with your home blogs, of course!)!

    1. Hey Janet! I'm about 5'7" and go between an 8 and 10 depending on brand. I think that most of my pieces lean towards a classic style that anyone could wear! Thanks for the encouragement. :)
