Pixie

This post was sponsored by Old Navy. Check out Old Navy’s latest fashion lineup in store or online at oldnavy.com.
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.

      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.

    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!!!
