#SummerGoals: White Pants
Arggghhh…! This week has been a tough week because both my computer and I have been sick. Okay, yes, computers “can’t get ‘sick’” — I know — but *if* they could get sick, then my computer would be a perfect example of a “sick” computer (or at least comparable to a toddler throwing a temper tantrum anytime I need it to do something). I don’t know if my computer needs a vacation, or if I need a vacation, or what! But my computer has had it out for me since Monday (ewwww, Mondays, lol). Computers can be such a pain in the arse if you ask me. And that saying: you can’t live with ‘em and you can’t live without ‘em, perfectly lines up with my life and my computer right now.
Anyways, enough about my computer struggles (and let’s be real, you didn’t come here to read all about my pity-party-computer-troubles). On a much lighter, more positive note, I wanted to talk summer/vacation wardrobes… and more specifically my love of these white pants.
Finding a good pair of white pants is equivalent to the literal act of finding a needle in a haystack. Or for a modern-day parable, finding out if Facebook sold your personal information to a third party... lol… too soon? ANYWAYS! As I have quickly learned, a *good* pair of white pants is hard to come by for many reasons, but one main reason is the color (which, I guess indirectly correlates with the quality of the pants themselves… but just hear me out.). I love a good neutral. I’m definitely the girl strutting around town in all white or black (yes, black — even during the summer). With my love of neutrals, and more specifically whites, comes the dread of wearing whites. Yeah, sure, it goes without saying (or in my case of oversharing) if I’m wearing white, I’m probs going to spill something on myself *knocks on wood*. But the other reasons why wearing white can be such a fickle thing is that wearing white can sometimes fall a little on the sheer side. Wearing something sheer isn’t a bad thing if that’s the look you’re going for, but usually in my case the goal isn’t to find see-through white pants. ATTN: If you are on a personal hunt for sheer white pants, please send me a comment on IG. I would love to meet you and hear all about that. So, in my case (and what I assume to be everyone else’s case, but idk...), I’d personally like to keep my derrière covered when wearing white pants.
All of that to say, I’m on the hunt for good quality white pants.
Well, guess what I found? I’m sure you already know the answer, but I feel the need to ask anyways. I mean the pictures are a dead giveaway, as is the title and the direction the blog is headed… sooo… I found the best white pants!
My hunt for the perfect pair of white pants has been (or should I say “was”) an ongoing hunt for some time. All I could find were low-quality white pants that were see-through. And on the other end of the spectrum, if I did find white pants that weren’t see-through, they were always stiff and left me feeling like I was wearing cardboard — who in their right mind wants to *wear* cardboard? Not Me! I also was determined to find a pair of white pants that properly accentuated all the right curves, because let’s be real, white isn’t always the most forgiving. Essentially these white pants sorta “fell in my lap,” if you will. I was invited to a shopping-brunch event that a family-friend was hosting. There I met the fashion brand Cabi and my new favorite pair of white pants, more formerly known as the Angel Trouser.
In my opinion, these are the perfect summer trousers that are ideal for a day at the office, weekend brunch, or vacation travel. The pants themselves are incredibly flattering on all body shapes, and frame and hug in all the right places. The pants are light, but not sheer or see-through (so I have no worries wearing my pink knickers underneath). Because the pants are made from a linen material they are incredibly soft and breathable. Trust me, I am NOT about to wear something, that is uncomfortable and stuffy! Besides checking off everything on my list of Must-Haves-For-White-Pants, these babies basically go with everything in my spring/summer wardrobe. Here in these pictures I have paired them with one of my favorite Free People tops. Feeling extra vacay-boujee, just hand me a bottle of sunscreen and a towel and I’m ready for my close-up by some boujee pool, under a boujee cabana, drinking an extra boujee piña colada! Hashtag that with #SummerGoals, amiright?
