Gaucho pants……summer pants that AREN’T shorts to wear on our pear shaped bodies (and one of my favorite ways to style summer sandals).
So, lately I’ve been working on celebrating my body AS IS. I’m about to turn 38, and I’m just sort of sick of trying to fight my body type. It’s been amazingly freeing to focus on dressing my pear shaped body in a way that feels beautiful, and then leaving exercise as what it should be (something I do to be healthy instead of to shrink the size of my thighs).
A couple weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about my favorite shorts for a pear shaped body. You guys loved it, but I got a TON of messages asking the same question…..what about summer pants other than shorts? So, here you are. I searched high and low, and found an amazing pair of lightweight gaucho pants. They’re PERFECT for summer, super flattering, and not a million dollars.
When it comes to summer fashion, these gaucho pants are perfect for easy breezy days in sandals and tees. Lately, Lydia and I have BOTH been wearing our red sandals on repeat with everything, so they were perfect to pair with my gaucho pants and Lydia’s chambray shorts on a morning mommy and me date to Abbott Kinney in Venice. We wandered the streets, checked out the murals (it’s instagram wall heaven), got the best coffee (for me), and enjoy the cooler temperatures that you get close to the beach. It was the perfect summer morning in the perfect summer outfits.
While these pants may be MY summer staples…..Lydia’s red sandals are hers. They’re part of Freshly Picked’s new toddler sandal collection and we are OBSESSED. They’re easy to take off and put on, and VERY comfortable. I’m teaming up with Freshly Picked to one reader their own pair of Freshly Picked shoes (moccasins or sandals…..your choice)…..so be sure to enter below!
I’m teaming up with my favorite mamas to share how EACH of us (and our littles) wear summer sandals…..be sure to check out:
