Hi there, Katie here again, Margaret's older sister for those who don't know.
Every year as the summer season nears (which can be early as March in LA!) I start to build my seasonal wardrobe. The usual cotton dresses and tank tops always make an appearance. But, I always make a new and startling addition. One year was the summer the shorts. This was major because I had declared at one point that I would never wear shorts again. I am a fan of making ridiculous declarations that I don’t keep (I will never wear leggings, I don’t swim, I don’t shop at H&M, see below). Who knows, one of these days I might just succumb to the rompers fad. Maybe.
About a year and a half ago, I finally jumped on the J. Brand Jeans bandwagon. I am crazy about the skinnies, and pretty much wear them exclusively when it comes to pants.
THEN… I was at J. Crew and came across the Anchors Aweigh Pant. Silk, slightly baggy and cropped navy pants… covered in a tiny anchor print. OMFG. So adorable! I picked them up, all the while thinking they were totally ridiculous (“I only wear skinny jeans”) and too expensive for a pair of novelty pants that sort of looked like pajamas. I was just trying them on as a lark. As soon as I pulled them on, I fell in love! Thus, it became the summer of silky pants!! A bit later, I went to H&M and found a zip-up pair in black AND green. Even though my sister calls them genie pants…. I declare it the summer of silky pants!
