A Slouchy Transition to Fall

082913_ragandbone

I’ve been searching for a while now for a pair of army green jeans that would be slouchy and loose for heatwaves worn with sandals, but would easily make the transition to fall with some short booties. I took a look at  a number of pairs – the Gap Broken In Straight Khakis Pants, Current/Elliott The Army Pants, and the Zara Slim Fit Trousers in Khaki – but ended up with the Rag & Bone pair since I loved the gray/green/no brown shade of army green, horizontal seams and boyfriend fit. The fit also looked like it would work with the pants both rolled and unrolled which was important for my summer to fall transition plans. I sized up to make sure they were extra slouchy, and definitely need a (hot pink) belt to hold them up. I was a little concerned that they were too big when they arrived, but after wearing for a couple weeks I feel like they have broken in just right. The above photo was taken on a recent hot summer day – now that the evenings are getting cooler I need to figure out how to style for the fall.

Pants: Rag & Bone/JEAN Brigade Pants (c/o Shopbop – on sale!)
Belt: Pink belt from H&M (Reviewed here)
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses (c/o Shopbop)
Bag: L.L. Bean Boat & Tote, Open Top with navy blue trim
Shoes: Salt Water Sandals - thrifted from EBay. My are way too large, make sure you size down!
Shirt: Gap, old. But if I could do it all over again I would get the Striped Short Sleeve Tee by T by Alexander Wang
