One pair of cargo pants, endless possibilities

Remember back in January when I made a post called One shirt, endless outfits? Well, I had so much fun styling myself around just one shirt, I decided to do it again with my fav pair of cargo pants. Here it is:

Cargo pants- Chino style

Cargo pants - Shimamura
Black cap - Ross
Beaded top - Ross
Golden sweater- Thrifted
Flats - H&M



Chino style

                               Folded hem on the pants and room shoes turned into ballet flats

Although these pants can be worn as cargo, I decided to turn them into a chino pants just by folding the hem a bit. I was inspired by a lady on the streets who owns real chino pants. I love chino pants and would love to own one in the same army green as these cargo pants. But I figure I cannot buy every single item I love in every single color I love (I already have chino pants in pink) just because. So I am working with what I have now.

Cargo pants - Folded style

Cargo pants - Shimamura
Printed dress - Ross
Tank top - Honey's
Floppy hat - Bday gift
Rockport wedges - Ross
Basket bag - Fam's Market



Folded style


Love this bag


Perfect summer accessory: floppy hat


And the love of my life (for now): the wedges

I love this dress. It was one of my first purchase in Ross. I do not wear it as often as I did because obviously I gained some weight. It looks so "beachy"... styled like this.

Scarf - Walmart
Yellow men's shirt - H&M
Bandolino Wedges - Marshalls

The love of my life (number 2): Bandolino wedges


The accessories; dropped earrings + matching bracelet and random ring

I am trying to go for a color block look but it is not very bold, maybe because the scarf pulls it all together. I enjoyed the color of the shirt. It just makes me happy. I wish I owned more yellow clothes. It is definitely one of my fav color right now.


Cargo pants for a party

Can you see the ruffles?

I finally found my ruffle leopard shirt. I saw this beauty online and had to have it. Unfortunately the sleeves are too short for my taste. I thought that being a size LL, it would be perfect for me. Imagine my disappointment. That is why I almost never shop online. I am too scared to be disappointed. Anyway, I like the shirt and will use it until I find a better replacement.

So what do you think? Have you tried doing the same with your clothes? It is so much fun!! And a great way to restyle never worn clothes (and avoid shopping).
