This one time last week I found myself alone in a Gap dressing room with an armful of clothes, mysteriously all in my size. I had no choice but to try them on. You would have done the same, right? I mean sure it was sketchy that I didn't have any clue how I ended up at a Gap 20 miles away from me, but when cute clothes are in your arms you try them on. It's just polite. I walked away from the store with this pair of pants. (And yes, I did remember to pay.)
 
Amnesia shopping -- that's what I'm going with on this one.

    Love them!! I am looking (well just need to get off my butt and actually go look) for camo pants/jeans. Did these seem to hold shape and not give in to the saggy butt look we all hate? If so, I am driving to my Gap now. Let me know, thanks!

  49. Wow. Who knew camo pants and a jean jacket could look so good!

    ReplyDelete
  50. So I used to work at the Gap. Just quit actually, which is a story in-and-of-itself, but I folded these pants so many times! I was seriously wondering how they would look on someone because they did not look flattering folded. Happy to say they look great! On you anyway. On me they'd probably be atrocious. :)

    Yes I think my body is on auto pilot to the mall.  Not sure how that happens.  Great casual look with a little hint of feminine with the heels :)

  64. Kendi, I just came across your blog a couple of weeks ago and I have been inspired to find myself again. After having had 3 children (the youngest being 16 mos) I found myself getting caught up in the kids and never having time to put into how I looked (in respect to day to day life). I have started putting the energy back into me and it feels great! I just wanted to thank you (and my husband thanks you ;) ) Not that sweats, t-shirts are jeans are bad but almost everyday was a little much. I had forgotten that it doesn't take much to dress up a t-shirt and jeans. Thanks for your inspiration!

  65. I like your mix of girly and a little bit tough- peplum and camo- who would have thought!  Beautiful, as ever!

  73. Would you suggest I size down in these pants since there is stretch?  Did they stretch much throughout the day?  Darling outfit, by the way.

  90. I just bought those same pants!  I plan to style them with a white/gray tank from Forver 21, a long tan cardigan from Gap, and brown tall boots.  I think they are going to be so versatile for the fall.

  91. If someone had come up to me earlier today and been like, "hey Jules, what do you think of camo pants with black pumps?" I probably would would have given them a wtf stink-eye.

    Luckily for me (and this fictional person, needing advice), I happened upon this blog post and now I know:  it totally works. Love it!
