WHAT TO WEAR: Vacation

What to Wear

As my summer vacation slowly comes to an end,  I decided to spend my last few days enjoying the SoCal weather by heading to the beaches. Last weekend I spent the day at Abbot Kinney, one of my favorite spots in Venice Beach. Abbot Kinney is full of little boutiques, cool art and delicious restaurants and cafes. It was there that I spotted this Fashionista spending the day with her friend and also enjoying the summer break.

This Fashionista’s slouchy printed pants was the first thing I noticed about her outfit. Print pants like hers have several different names for them: harem pants, pajama bottoms, lounge pants and jogger pants. Ever since print pants like this have debuted in stores and on the runways, I’ve debated whether or not I like them or not. But after seeing how this Fashionista styled hers in a casual and comfortable way, I’m definitely all for them now.

This Fashionista bought her print pants from Forever 21. She styled and wore them so well that I admit I was a bit surprised when she told me where she bought them. Not only do they look super comfortable, but they also look cool, stylish and chic. For a print pant with more subdued colors, try this other Forever 21 pair. While one of my favorite brands, Band of Outsiders, also has this floral print pair that I can’t wait to get my hands on.

When wearing a such a vibrant print bottom, make sure to keep your top basic and plain to balance out your outfit out. This Fashionista smartly paired her busy pants with a basic black top from Brandy Melville. For an equally comfy basic top, grab this H&M one.

Last but not least, this Fashionista carried one of my favorite Fashionista staples, a Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag. Her mini MAC bag is in an amazing mint color and it’s the perfect summer color. I’ve written before about cross-body bags but I must say that this one is my absolute favorite!

This Fashionista’s print pants are a perfect vacation staple. Easy to wear, comfortable and stylish they’re the a great piece to pack for any vacation. The next time you decide to take a mini road trip with friends or a weekend trip to the beach, slip on into a pair of slouchy print pants and you’ll look stylish and comfortable in whatever you decide to do!

One Simple Change: Slip on a pair simple black heels like this Zara pair and you have the perfect outfit for a girls night out!
