Last week, I drove through the Southwest with my mom. The lowest high we saw was in the low 90s (with humidity) and the highest was 104, I think (with almost zero humidity). I came home to LA to be reunited with my June gloom (60s and overcast) and back to pants and a light jacket for at least a few weeks! I poked fun at my husband that he was crazy to try to wear shorts in June! Give it a few weeks (usually July 4th) and then it’ll be shorts nonstop through September and October! These fun pants, however, are my go to spring, summer, and fall. With an easy change of top, I can make a khaki pants outfit work for basically any occasion…
If you don’t remember the story of these pants, these were my $20 bargain find on a sale rack in a very small shop in St-Remy in Provence on our honeymoon. They were more an impulse purchase than anything else and they’re now going into their third season with me; I’m still in love with them! The first time I shared them with you, I went on a hunt online to find similar pairs. I found one pair with a price tag over $300. Madness! I’m now starting to see the splattered trend a little more, however, and quickly found these splattered chinos from Anthropologie and these splattered jeans at Nordstrom. And I’ve seen that Rag & Bone has a splattered style coming out soon, so the trend must be on it’s way back into our world! I’m happy to be so prepared!
what color shirt goes with khaki pants
The wonderful thing about khaki is how versatile it is. I usually opt for a white or black top in my khaki pants outfits. Well, honestly, I’m usually wearing a white or black top no matter the bottoms, so there’s that to keep in mind. I do love pinks and navy with these pants too, though, so the options are fairly endless.
