I know I'm no longer in a traditional office setting but I still get excited for casual Friday. I think it's just been imbedded in my brain to wait until Friday to really let loose. I remember in my office days when some people really took casual to a new level -- we are talking a pair of shoes and a bed away from being considered pajamas. While I silently nodded their bravery of very casual at the office, I could never quite get to that level of comfort on Friday. My casual days always included heels. The fact that I'm wearing sneaks to work today well, this is huge. Baby steps, right? (I have to say though, these pants are calling for a good pair of heels. I see a long relationship this spring with these pants. Heels included.) 








I was hoping to confuse you with the title of this post and make you think that I took the plunge and got the J.Law. That would never happen because what you guys don't know is that my head is the size of a gourd. If you've ever seen a pixie on a gourd, it's not a beautiful thing. I have to have hair to cover this vegetable that sits on my neck. 

Well that got sufficiently weird fast. (Pants, Kendi, talk about your pants.) 

Back on topic, I picked up these new pixie pants at Old Navy a few weeks ago and I was so excited about them because they fit perfect (aka they. are. stretchy) and, as you know, I love a good printed pant. And then...then they just kind of sat in my closet. I would look at them every day and wondered what I could do with them. I thought about mixing stripes with them but I've been there and done that. Chambray? A great option, but I wanted to try something new so I was stumped. Until today, I thought why not sneaks? I've not yet been there. So today I ventured into 'comfy chic' territory. So far, so very good.

  5. They are so comfy! But the kind of comfy that still looks put together you know? I actually sized up one size because I wanted to have a little bit more room, but I love them.

  9. I really love the pants, I never would have guessed they are from Old Navy! I've also never been one for a graphic tee, but I am liking what J.Crew has put out this season. Looks really cute.

  17. I bought the sweatshirt you featured from Old Navy in both navy and oatmeal and absolutely love them. In fact, I'm wearing the oatmeal one with a plaid shirt underneath for Casual Day today. So, now I am in pursuit of these Old Navy pants. I have Converse and that same J Crew Factory jean jacket, so I'm going to attempt this look. Thank you so much for your creativity and stellar fashion sense!!!

  19. I've been eying those pants and deciding if I should give them a try- I usually have such fit issues with pants. But both you and Molly from APOT have convinced me to at least try them on! Super cute outfit, love it!

  26. I kind of want to try the new Old Navy Pixie pants, but I'm scared that a) they'll be too short and I won't be able to work them. b) They'll turn into mom jeans.

  39. Oh, Kendi. It's impossible to read your posts without literally LOL'ing, or at the very least smiling as I read along. Makes it pretty much impossible to pretend I'm hard at work at work!

    Love what you did here; glad you went there. Pinned onto my Vicarious Style board. :)

  56. These pants are a necessary purchase. Bought 2 pair in store and love them so much I just got 3 more pair online. The price is unbeatable. I tried them with pumps, wedges, sneakers, leather mocs, and suede booties. Loved them all. Can wear for work or fun. So glad you featured these, Kendi!
