Patio Pant Party: Navy

Top: Chelsea 28 (old, similar here) | Pants: J. Crew Patio Pant (similar here) | Heels: Steve Madden

I'm a girl who loves dresses, especially during summer. They make getting ready in the morning much easier, and all you need is jewelry and the perfect bag and you're out the door! But, nothing beats a pair of well-fitting pants in my book. I discovered the Patio pant at J. Crew last fall and instantly fell in love with the cropped, wide-leg silhouette. They still felt tailored and polished while having an easy-going vibe. 

I purchased them in a bi-stretch wool fabrication, which is a nice weight and doesn't feel too hot even in the warmer months of summer. They also come in a cotton blend if you're looking for a more breathable fabric. The relaxed fit through the leg makes them super comfortable, so even after a long day at work they feel amazing! I styled this particular look with one of my favorite pastels: blush. I love the contrast against the navy pants, and the lace detail provides a feminine touch. A soft metallic clutch and neutral heels complete this look, which is great for the office and happy hour to follow. 

J. Crew recently put all of their Patio pants on sale, and introduced a new silhouette called the Teddie, which I'm loving in this pattern here. I have yet to try this style on in store (it appears more tapered through the leg and has a more dramatic flare out at the calf), but I definitely want to give them a try. You can probably also snag a pair of Patio pants while they're still available, and get a killer deal too!

I purchased my Patio's in 3 different colors, so stay tuned in the coming weeks as I continue my #PatioPantParty and show you how I style them in different ways! 
Have a great weekend!
