Outfit Post: White Corduroys & Tee

It ain’t often that you’ll find me wearing white pants. Most of the white pants I’ve tried on throughout my life have been completely see-through. Is it just me, or is there a shortage of non-see-through white pants out there? Thankfully, these cozy, stretchy Old Navy corduroy pants don’t have that problem.

I love a good pair of blue jeans, but I think it’s nice every so often to mix up our staple garments. Case in point: switch out jeans for corduroy.

I like that this tee-shirt has some cool little details on it that make it stand out. And the cutout sleeves add a dash of sex appeal to an otherwise suburban look. You know I like that sort of thing.

Taking a casual outfit and pairing it with a nice pair of heels can really raise the dress up factor. Or I could easily throw on a pair of Chucks and keep everything else the same to completely change this look. I should have brought a pair with me to show both ways of styling this look, but I’m not enough of a pro at fashion blogging to think of these ideas before the actual photos are taken.

Those of you who know me know that I almost never remember to wear accessories. It drives my mother crazy more than it does me, but one thing I’m almost always found wearing anklets. I purchased this one in Thailand last year and I love it just as much as when I got it.

Pants: The Gap

Shoes: Jessica Simpson (She makes the most comfortable pumps I’ve worn outside of Christian Louboutin. Yeah, I own more of her than him).

Shirt: Some place no one cares about.

What do you think? Would you wear more white pants if they weren’t mostly see-through? Do you wear them anyway, lol? What do you think about cutout sleeves and a bit of skin peeking out?

  1. So cute! I’ve found that the only white pants that aren’t see through are the higher priced ones. I bought a pair (I think Apt. 9) and paid regular price (only because I had a gift card) and they hide what’s underneath fairly well. BTW you’re hot! 😉

    1. That sounds about right. Classy, rich women aren’t out here flashing striped panties through white pants. It’s good to know a brand that won’t leave us assed out, lol. I think it’s such a good lesson that when we have a gift card to go out and buy the quality stuff we normally wouldn’t get. And btw, thank you so much for the compliment! xoxo

    1. I know, right?! I’m way too noncommittal and moody to commit to just one look, lol. Also part of the reason why there’s so many pairs of shoes in my car at any given time!


  2. Lyz,

    Your confidence just oozes. Your exceptional taste in fashion, a fun free-style sense (wonderful! duh!), and how I’ve watched you present yourself in words, through video, and through pictures… is just… classy-spectacular Ma’am. Hands down. (mic drop)

    Keep doing EVERYTHING you do!!! KNOW you are Lyz and can unequivocally say… “Watch out world! You have been warned” 🙂 ❤

    OH! And yes, again… you are killing me woman! LOL

    1. 😙 You’re a darling. A wonderful darling. I sooo appreciate the encouragement. I will drop the mic and I will sound the warning! 😀

      Oh, also my speciality is a long slow death, so you should buckle in for the long haul. Bring snacks!

    1. Aw, you know I always wanted them as a kid. They were super popular but we didn’t do much shopping for popular stuff. Now I have them in white, hot pink and like a pumpkin orange. Childhood dreams can come true 😄

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Cindy! Yes, I thought about that, lol. I liked the lightness of the photos with so much white, but you’re right, it also blends into my legs. One of those rock and a hard place scenarios. I do love the location and will probably go back with something non white next time 😀 I do enjoy having legs! Lol.

  3. This is such a good look on you! I love the monochromatic theme, and then the blue shoes! It adds such a nice pop 😀 I’m not a fan of white pants, white skirts I’m okay with though. I just don’t find white to be a flattering colour on me 🤔

    1. I’m so ridiculously behind on comments. Sorry hon. I don’t do much monochromatic but I do want to try it out more. I think you can pull off white pants with a colored sweater. Something soft and pretty. 💜

  4. You look great! But man, I wish see-through was the only problem with white pants. I used to be able to wear white or cream-colored pants. Then kids. White just doesn’t look so nice with shoe prints, boogers, and cheeto smears. 😛


    1. Lol, I’m going to let this comment sleep next to me in bed tonight. Thanks so much, girlie. I’m just as excited to know people that appreciate the combination. I can talk literature all day! I’m doing my IG Live tonight at 7:30 on I’m Nobody! Who are you? Let’s be lit geeks together 🙂
