Who else gets a little inpatient waiting for the right season to wear your recent purchases? I am so guilty of doing this once spring comes, I am beyond over winter and ready to wear anything colorful. But here I am excited to wear some of my fall purchases. Crazy, I know, specially since I want to hold onto summer for as long as possible! While shopping for my fall wardrobe, I was trying to get pieces I can easily transition. Things I can wear now and then. These stripe paper bag pants are the prefect pants to transition with.
I know to a lot of people stripes are mainly a print you wear during the spring and summer season. But you know I am that girl that creates her own fashion rules. Stripes is a print you can honestly wear all season long. Some prints are neutrals and stripe is one of them. These cotton pants are light enough to wear during the summer heat, but can be worn right through the cooler season. They have great structure to them. Some paper bag pants are flimsy and doesn’t stay put right, specially after being put in the wash. Not these babes!
I figured what better top to pair these pants with than a good ole off the shoulder top? Remember the two piece tassel set I fell in love with from my amazon try on? Oh, I just LOVE it! This tassel off the shoulder top keeps this look fresh with summer vibe tied into it. Finished my look with espadrilles and a box straw bag.
Are you already wearing your fall purchases now? How are you incorporating your fall wardrobe now?
Happy Friday loves! What are your weekend plans? The kids are back home and they are already driving me crazy. It’s been less than 48 hours!! We are planning on getting most of the back to school shopping done, since school starts in a few weeks. But first we are planning a date night tonight, which includes a couples massage 😉 Living the wild life! Enjoy the weekend,

There isn’t a more perfect maxi dress than one with stripes! Jill from Doused in Pink is looking stunning in this maxi dress!! Love that she added a basecamp to the mix, so chic. Make sure you stop by and say hi 😉
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Me too. After the Nordstrom sale, I’m always ready for cooler weather so I can wear my new things. Kind of hate that though because I love summer.
What fun striped pants! they look like a great piece for all year round! 🙂
Thank you for the link up!
Hope that your week has been a good one and you have a nice weekend ahead of you 🙂 The massage sounds wonderful!
I love this look! Those paperbag pants are so cute on you! Thank you so much for the feature! Have a wonderful weekend!

I’m always anxious to wear spring pieces, but never fall pieces as I know once cold weather hits I’ll be wearing them for six months here in Wisconsin. Love your outfit! Everything is perfect head to toe.
I totally agree that stripes are a neutral pattern and not just for spring and summer. And I love that top, the tassels are so adorable!
Hahahaha. I had a chuckle about the kids, I can completely relate. You look absolutely fabulous in this outfit. I love the tassel top you have here and it’s such an easy transitional piece from summer into fall. I haven’t purchased anything yet and will likely be waiting a little bit after we all settle back into the school routine. I have a few items into mind but nothing is 100% confirmed. Happy weekend.
You look so gorgeous in this outfit!! And yes I’m with you about getting sick of each season and looking forward to the next!! I love all of this beautiful outfit!!
These are great transitional pieces! I always enjoy seeing how you style outfits! Wonderful post as always.
Oh that top is so cute and I love the tassels! You paired it with those pants perfectly!
This is such a great outfit, Mel! I love the long sleeve off the shoulder blouse. And those pants are darling!
Fabulous outfit! I love the striped trousers, they look great with the pretty OTS top. Thanks for linking up!
