I Heart

I bought these skinny cargos mid-summer, but seeing as it was way, way too hot to even think about wearing them, I folded them up & tucked them into my dresser drawer for future cooler days.

I honestly kind of forgot about them until recently, so Saturday I decided to take them out for a trial run. I'm honestly not sure how often I'll be sporting them - I like them, but they are so low-rise that I find myself constantly hauling them up or pulling my shirt down to ensure I'm not exposed. My torso has a hard time dealing with anything remotely low-rise, but for such a great price and otherwise good fit, I couldn't pass these up. But much like girls who can't walk in their heels, a girl hauling up her pants constantly is just not attractive. So we'll see... they're limited to longer tops, that is for sure!

& this sweater is the warmest sweater I've ever owned - which is surprising, because it's very light weight and doesn't seem like it would overly warm. But I've never felt quite so cozy - I even had to take it off multiple times through the day when I was inside (though it was absolutely perfect for the cool outdoor air!) I will definitely be wearing this one a ton this winter!

Hope you all had an absolutely delightful weekend!

  1. You look gorgeous! I love the pants on you even if they're driving you a little batty. They're perfect with the sweater and the shoes!!

    Strange enough I was organizing my pants on the weekend and came across my cargoes and totally wondered if I'd missed a post from you on yours....weird, huh?

    I love them on you.

  3. I hear you with the low rise thing! That's ok, these pants will look great with longer tops. I'm surprised you said the sweater is lightweight, in the pictures it looks like it's quite heavy.

  5. The pants are super cute and look fab on you! (I hate the tugging/pulling feeling too though.)
    Love the heart graffiti (even though graffiti is a no-no), at least if it's pretty...

  7. I love this outfit! The sweater and cargo pants are great for Fall.

    I'm wearing pants that fall down today and I've been constantly pulling them up, it's quite annoying! But I think they look good so it's all worth it ; )

    Love the location of your photo shoot, too!

  8. So gorgeous, Kate!! That sweater looks like the coziest thing ever (glad you said it is!) and I'm glad to see you finally debut the skinny cargos! Still can't believe they're from Costa Blanca. So glad the warm and cozy dressing phase has arrived :)

  10. that sweater is so great!!
    I hate it when I am wearing an item that constantly needs adjusting, just so uncomfortable. But, the pants do look really good on you.

  14. best sweater ever? yes. perfect with the shoes!
    as for the low-rise, why not just belt it? if you get a belt that's nice and snug but not so tight that it pulls them UP (creating a kind of awful cameltoe effect) then they should stay in place :D
    also i believe i said this on your chictopia but you have the cutest ever smile!!
