Summer Outfit - Featuring Palazzo Pants

Before I introduce my denim series next week, I wanted to show you one more outfit from the last photo shoot I did. It was sort of a last idea in the series and I don't show it styled casual, only more dressy, but it would be easy to imagine it as a more casual outfit with just a few changes.

I like the way this pair of palazzo pants fit. They are a little more snug than some of my other pairs, but that seems to have a more slimming effect. Plus the pattern runs more vertical than horizontal. I love the feel of palazzos, but I think you have to find the pattern and fit that works for you. Not every pattern or material works for everyone. That is part of the importance of finding your own style.

I styled these with my nude peep-toe heels, my white lace tee, gold accessories and a sparkly pewter clutch. I also included my neutral colored light weight cardigan. I adore this cardi. It has an open front, 3/4 length sleeves and is the perfect weight for summer.

Here, you can see a little more of the detail on the lace tee, and a little bit of the detailing on the long gold necklace with fringe and bead dangles on the end, the matching bracelet and a bit of the bling on the purse.

This outfit could quickly become casual, by swapping the heels for a pair of flip flops, the lace tee for one with an asymmetrical hem, some fun colored beads and a canvas hobo bag.
