The Versatile Khaki Pant

I’ve had these pants for several years, and I wear them often, because khakis are so versatile. I pair these with any color and practically any kind of top. The day of this shoot it was hovering at 90 degrees, so the light-weight fabric was perfect (see similar here).

I particularly like the look of these khaki pants with the cognac-color bag and shoes and earth-tone color shirt.  If you’re interested in the shirt, it looks tan on line (they call it Dark Driftwood), but I think it’s more light brownish-olive in person (and in these photographs).

(ABOVE & BELOW) The earth-tone color and pocket detailing on this shirt were what caught my attention. Most Gigi New York bags can be personalized, including the Olivia Shopper, below, which is similar to my tote, above. Both are in tan pebble grain. For a similar bag in faux leather, visit Nordstrom. Watch: Michael Kors (also similar).

    Beautiful- classic and clean! And I love that pop of pink on you! I felt so lucky, after recently moving to Oakland, CA that there is an actual 100% Pure shop!
