Kick back in Cargo

29 Aug

Spent a lovely Saturday with friends… running around the city, shopping, and… err… drinking. What that means is Blake and I are glued to the couch today watching Real Housewives re-runs. You know those days that center around deciding what unhealthy dinner to order in? Nothing beats a lazy Sunday!

I’ve been contemplating the J Brand cargos, but just can’t bring myself to spend $230 on pants I’ll be over in a couple months. These Blank NYC ones were the perfect solution at just $78! They’re comfy as can be to boot.

I’m counting down the days ‘til our New York trip! Cannot wait to see friends and go exploring. If you have a sec, I’d so appreciate it if you’d vote for my look in the Juicy/Chictopia contest! Lord knows I could use the extra dough for NY. If you don’t have an account you can login with facebook… just click the yellow star to the right of my photo. Thank you thank you! <3

Hope y’all had a good weekend! xo

    Those are perhaps one of the most flattering pair of cargos i’ve seen in a while. I love how you softened the rugged look of the cargos with a dainty lace top.

    I totally feel ya on the J Brands. My fave denim store here in NOLA is selling both those and the Blanks that you have on! Let me just say they look way better on you :) I’m still on the hunt for a good pair. Love the lace top with it!

    Off to vote for you now! xo

    Voted! Great pants. I got a Zara version, but the crotch is way too… dropped. Yours are way better.

    Love this outfit…the feminine top works so well with the “tougher” pants and shoes. You look stunning!

    I Love those Cargos ! They remind me of some I have seen in the most recent Victorias Secret Catalog. The new skinny cargo !

    Oh, I LOVE target! I will have to go check them out. I wish there was one here is San Francisco — the closest one’s about 20 mins outside of the city. I have been wanting to go for weeks, though! :)

    I love cargos to and I am facing the same problem! To buy some or not. But seeing them on you makes me want to go buy a pair. I love how you paired it with the lace and those wedges are amazing!

    I say buy a pair! As much as I love the J Brands, they are pretty pricey though. There are plenty of J Brand-inspired ones out there that are ALMOST as cute and much more affordable!
