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.

Outfit Details

top: old, but I just tried this simple shell on at LOFT – it’s really pretty and flattering (the pic doesn’t do it justice).  Or…this blush silk cami is more like the top I’m wearing.

pants: LOFT, sold out, but these have the same fit in a much lighter wash, or these have a similar wash with a different 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….

top: Hanro  (gang, this cami is 15 years old – NO JOKE.  It’s been washed and dried hundreds of times.  Amazing.)

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

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.

xo,
