I have always been drawn to the ascetic of fashion icons Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. They are so stylish and beautiful and, well, classic. I love the way they take classic pieces and make them look fresh and whimsical, all while staying so feminine and pretty. One of my favorite Audrey looks is her ankle length pants - she makes them look so effortless! When I saw these periwinkle blue pants at the store they looked exactly like something she or Grace Kelly would wear, and I fell in love with them immediately.
This blue color is one of my favorites right now. It’s a gorgeous light blue color that looks flattering on everyone, and looks excellent with white. While you know I love navy, I think you are going to see more and more of this blue in my closet in these warmer months! I also love the way the pants have a little texture in the weave, and the ankle length is so perfectly Audrey (in my opinion).
I paired the pants with a white blouse and easy sneakers. To add a little glamour I opted for gold hoops, and used one of my favorite basket bags (old, similar) to add some texture. Also, my aviator sunglasses broke and I found these frames at Nordstrom Rack for a steal! They have so many great choices right now, if you are looking for new glasses definitely check it out!
When creating an outfit I like to incorporate glitzy and casual pieces (in this case statement earrings and a basket bag) to balance each other out and add interest. So much of fashion is about balance - whether it’s in pairing a bright lip with a basic eye, a statement earrings with a casual sandal, or a fancy dress with a basket bag. I try to always keep that sense of balance when I decide what to wear in the morning.
What do you think? Would Audrey approve of periwinkle pants?
