INsPIration: Style DU MONDE VIA Who What WEar

One of my favorite things about blogging and fashion in general is that I feel like I never stop learning. Without this inspiration photo, I never would've paired these pants with heels and a blazer. I was limiting them to casual flats and warm weather because of their loose fit and linen-type fabric. Not to mention that for this outfit I'd usually wear denim or cropped dress pants - I'd never usually consider a pant this casual. I don't think it photographed as well as it felt in person (might try a slightly different mix of colors next time), but it certainly felt great to try something unexpected!
