Cute, casual pants are a great staple for every wardrobe


I'd describe myself as less "fashion challenged" than "generously erring on the side of comfort." Jeans or capris + long- or short-sleeved tees = one happy me. I do love finding unique, feminine blouses and dresses for special occasions, but for everyday? Low-key is my fashion
