I feel like I've only scratched the surface when it comes to the ways I could wear these two pieces. I could have styled them up a whole lot more, but these looks are a pretty good representation of how I dress. I like to keep things simple + feel like I can switch things up easily with the switch of a pair of shoes.
These vintage army pants are just another example of how one item can be super casual when worn with a white muscle tank + sandals...and then about as dressy as I need to be when worn with a white button down (or cashmere pullover) + flats. Our clothing can often serve us in so many more ways than those for which we give them credit. When I talk about wearing my clothing over + over...I mean it. :)
I can wear this "pajama" top with every one of my fitted pants: jeans, white pants + army pants (not to mention shorts). I can wear it as a layer over a tank, tee or slip dress...or under a cardigan or jacket. Again, the shoes I chose would change the resulting looks as well. The pants are a dreamy summer weight that will get lots of use with tanks, tees + sandals. They will also serve me well as a cozy partner to sweatshirts, sweaters + socks in the cooler months. I might not wear them to work, but I'd wear them to most any other casual setting. It's all in the mindset. I think of these pieces not simply as pajamas, but as a perfectly legitimate top + pants.
