So. I bought these chambray joggers last year, during one of LOFT’s many clearance sales (I think I paid a grand total of $15). I’ve been wearing them like sweatpants (aka my favorite pants), but unlike sweatpants there’s no ambiguity – did she mean to wear those out?? – nor do you have to be all that cool or intentional with the rest of your outfit. They’re just like real pants….wait! They ARE real pants. But comfy and easy and–
Easy like Sunday mo-orn-ning
Which is precisely when I wear them. (As Raines would say, “MOM. DON’T SING.”)
Chambray Joggers As Sweatpants
These pants are long on my short self, and I’ve yet to meet a pair of joggers that were able to be successfully tailored (at least not for the few bucks I’m willing to pay) but I have a trick for the shorties out there….flip that waistband.
shoes: Reef Ginger Flipflops
bra: Free People, now sold out, but this Free People cotton floral bra is similar, and would look cute peeking out….
Chambray Joggers As Real Pants
top: Hanro (gang, this cami is 15 years old – NO JOKE. It’s been washed and dried hundreds of times. Amazing.)
shoes: Saltwater Sandals
necklace: old, but this one from Dorothy Perkins is similar
sunglasses: old, but I’m lusting after these bright red Ray-Bans. The orange lenses are to-die-for, and the whole this is surprisingly feminine
Chambray Joggers As Beach Pants
top: Banana Republic Textured Cross-back Pullover (on sale!) I’m wearing the petite small.
sunglasses: Elizabeth and James Crawford sunnies
Because I’m always mildly annoyed when a blogger writes an article about some item of clothing and then is like, “Sorry! This piece of fabulouness is ALLL SOLD OUT SAD FACE” I attempted to round-up some other options…but there’s not an exact match. And In My Defense, Your Honor….a bunch of you already own chambray joggers and asked for this article. For the rest of you??? I also found some linen-like jogger/beach pants that might work…dare I say it?…EVEN BETTER. *cough*LOFT striped linen pants*cough
You be the judge.
Soft Joggers That Can Be Sweatpants, Beach Pants or Real Pants
NOTE: I covered the wider-leg beach pants last summer, if you are interested. (It’s crazy how short my hair was!)
If any of you guys are rocking pants like this, I’d love to see it up on Instagram (I’m @shanachristine) – tag ’em with #myeverydayedit. Or! Better yet! Send in a pic for Reader Style.
ps. We’re super behind on our #myeverdayedit posts, but it’s SUMMER YOU GUYS. We’ll get ours up eventually. 🙂
