3 Ways to Wear Pastel Blue Linen Sailor Pants

"MONOCHROMATIC"
PASTEL BLUE LINEN SAILOR PANTS - Derek Heart
BLUE SHEER COTTON SWEATER - Rogan for Target
PINK CUFF - Made by my Mom!
WHITE WATCH - Sprout
"PREPPY"
STRIPED CORAL SHIRT - Old Navy
"RELAXED"
LAVENDER COTTON TANK - Banana Republic
CREAM PASHMINA - JC Penney
Princess Sparkles recently learned how to do "butterfly kisses" and "eskimo kisses," and now her new thing is to make up other ways to give kisses.  She's very creative and has given "chin kisses," "eyebrow kisses," even "hand kisses."  I just enjoy kisses.

I decided to do a "3 WAYS TO WEAR" post on my BLUE LINEN PANTS because I wasn't sure what to wear them with.  I did a "monochromatic" version with a loose sweater.  Then I did a "preppy" version with a lightweight button down.  Finally I did a "relaxed" version with a semi-sheer lavender tank (found it in Polka Dot's closet!).  I found that what works best with these linen pants is to wear something sheer, lightweight and similar toned (pastels).

The thing I like about these linen pants is they remind me of being on vacation.  Unfortunately we're not going anywhere for Memorial Day Weekend.  So no "goodbye kisses" for us!  But if I'm going to be home on a holiday, then by golly, at least I'm going to dress like I'm on vacation!

I love those linen pants! I'm having a hard time to deciding which I like better though - the first or third pictures.

My 3-yeard old recently came up to me and licked my cheek. I was like, Eww, gross! What was that for? And he said, It's a puppy kiss, momma! Crazy kids! lol

Looking very fresh. What I love about linen besides being cool is that its totally okay to be wrinkled! :)

You're good. I don't have this item in my wardrobe because I'm not sure what to wear and I really like all three ways. I think monochromatic and relaxed are my favorites.

Definitely go out to Forever 21 and buy a dress. Dresses during the summer are the best.

I love the 3rd one the best!! It is more of my style and it's indeed very accurate "relaxed", something i would wear too on a holiday at home, the scarf added more attention to it as well!...how old is Princess Sparkles?

Hi Claire!

Thanks so much for checking out my blog!!

This looks great- I always have issues trying to wear wide-legged/ loose pants. They look beyond awkward on me & I struggle to find new ideas of what to pair it with. i really love what you've done with them- they're such a unique silhouette and color, but you've managed to give them a different look with each outfit!! I especially love the last one. :)

I'm following & I'd love if you could follow back! :)
