Wearing Cargo Pants | What I Wore #ootd

Cargo Pants | Mid-Life Mom Style

Cargo Pants. Are they still in style? Maybe not for date night, but for taking your kids to the park or working from home, they may be the perfect answer. Especially if they fall into that 80-20 rule we talked about (remember, we only wear 20% of what we have). So break out those Cargo Pants and let's style them up.

Big and sloppy is definitely out, but a cute pair of cargos, paired with a tank, cami and/or peasant type top can look current. Keep shoes and other accessories in balance too. I have a pair from Lands End that I have had for YEARS. They are straight leg, but can roll up. I like the rolled up look, and typically bring these for our Beach vacation. This week though, I wanted to bring them out of the house, and style them for a day of errands and work.

A quick fashion behind the curtain peek - while I yearn to have inspiring fashion-model perfect pictures. . .my reality is one of my kids snapping a quick picture before we head off for the day.  It is authentic Mid-Life Mom style, exactly how I left the house for the day, and this week's photo is no different:

  1. I totally have a pair of cargo pants! LOVE them because they look like jeans, ya know, but they're so much more comfortable. :)
