The Landing Stripe

Shoes: Sold out, another option HERE |Clutch: Kate Spade, old| Bangles: Purchased in Kenya

When this pair of pants arrived in a recent shipment from Gwynnie Bee, I didn't think I would like them. I hadn't realized previously that they were pull on pants without a zipper or button closure. However, once I tried them on, surprise - surprise- I liked them! I l❤ve that my Gwynnie Bee membership allows me to step outside of my normal style preferences without any commitment to make a purchase! 
Having the ability to try on items prior to styling them is very important to me. My body shape appears to be unique to a number of designers. This is why I prefer to shop in-store...Nonetheless, the quantity/variety of styles available online simply cannot be ignored. 
When shopping online, I try to select the size that will fit my body the best. I try to ignore size numbers for brands/designers that I am not familiar and instead pay more attention to precise garment measurements, when available. I also take into account material along with the actual design of the item. I'd rather a piece be too big, versus too small. Sometimes when I'm in a crunch for time, I'll order two sizes and send back the one that doesn't work. 
I styled this pair of pants simply, adding a puffy sleeve cotton white blouse and pops of yellow via accessories.
Until next time Babes,
Xx
