Lightweight pants are a great alternative for hot summer days if you don't want to wear shorts. My regular readers may be aware that my legs have been looking very scarred and bruised from a cooking accident last Thanksgiving and also from working in the garden. Although I still wear shorts on occasion, my scars have been leaving a bit self conscious so I've been leaning on lightweight pants and maxi dresses as options.
Because of my scars, I asked my Stitch Fix stylist to send me some "Easy Breezy lightweight pants" and she sent me this pair from Kut from the Kloth.
The pants are a thin linen material. They are so thin you can see right through them if you hold them up to light (definitely got to wear the right underwear when wearing these pants!). The thinness is nice for hot weather, but the material does wrinkle easily.
The pants have both a drawstring and elastic waist line, plus pockets.
I paired my Stitch Fix pants with this cute graphic tee from JCPenney. I will be leaving for a hiking adventure in Utah in a few weeks, so I purchased some new active wear and lightweight loose tanks for the trips. I absolutely fell in love with the print and color of this tank, but of course the only size they had left was a large. I promised myself I would never buy clothing that was not my size again because I always end up regretting it, yet, I did it again. Ugh! Why do I that? I should have just waited and ordered my correct size on-line. Anyway, the top is very large and loose on me, which makes me look bigger than I am, but, I think it will be very comfortable to wear with my active wear shorts and leggings. The longer length will cover up my backside nicely.
I chose my strappy flat sandals from DSW (old) to go with the casual, boho vibe of this look.
I added a multi-strand beaded bracelet that has a lot of the colors from the outfit in the beads, and I carried a straw bag...both great boho pieces that compliment the outfit.

Perfect for summer hot days: **ReplyDelete
Yes it is! Thank you!Delete
I just love thin- weight, elastic waist linen pants for summer. Last year I had 4 pairs-- tan, gray, black, and pink. None of them fit me anymore and I never got around to buying any this summer but they are so comfy!ReplyDelete
Yes, they are so nice, especially when shorts aren't always appropriate. Wow! 4 pairs! I think I own two, but only one pair I'd actually wear outside the home.Delete
The drawstring pants look so comfortable and love that color! I'm not one to wear shirts with prints, but this top is so cute and I agree it'll be perfect for hiking! Love how the graphic matches the color of the pants.ReplyDelete
Thanks Ellie! I got lucky on the color match, that's for sure!Delete
yes, everywhere feel hot....ReplyDelete
Mississippi experience F 120 degree....crazy
It's actually not hot in Wisconsin at all, but I always run warm these days and I am always looking for ways to stay cool. Thanks so much!Delete
Those look so comfy Amy! I love the color combo and how cute you look!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ruth! I really love the color combo too!Delete
Amy, those pants are perfect! And I love the rich red color with that orange graphic tee. Perfect styling!ReplyDelete
Linen pants are definitely a summer yes from me! They are a great cool option if you're not wearing shorts!ReplyDelete
they are cute pants and look great with the orange top, but yes the thinness and wrinkles that come with linen put me off a little!ReplyDelete
