Chambray, check! Comfy pants, check! Cute flats, check! A little bit of glam, check!
This my friends, is my ideal casual attire. Perfect for running errands or a day date with your man, which is what happened today. 

I love the rich color of these pants, still dark like a denim but not as typical. These pants are actually petites, which when i saw them on the rack i thought "no way! im not short", but i tried them on and low and behold they fit perfectly! Moral of this short story, don't judge something when it's on the hanger. If you like it, think it's cute, and it is in your size range just try it on! Also just because something doesn't fit you that is in your usual size doesn't mean it won't work either. Try sizing up a size, or even down. All clothing, fabrics, and fits will vary from store to store. Don't be scared to go up a size, it may end up making you look thinner than stuffing yourself in something that's too small. If something doesn't fit, it doesn't fit. I have to tell myself that sometimes. I would rather pass on it then spend the money on something that will be sitting in my closet because i know i will feel uncomfortable in it all day. I've done it too many times before.  Be patient when shopping and willing to try things on, and willing to let things stay in the store.

And let's talk about these flats. How cute?! Another one of those buys of when i saw them i had to have them! And for only 25 bucks, yes please! They are super comfy and give a little more flair then just your typical ballet flat. This ankle strap is everything, and the subtle pink alligator texture, is so simple and chic. 

Happy Tuesday readers!
