I posted a while back about looking for breezy pants. I have been successful since then by looking outside my usual brands. I got the palm print pants below from Wit & Wisdom, and the chambray colored linen pants from Amazon. (Finds included as an FYI.)

I thought I was done, but I stumbled on these striped pants from Beach Lunch Lounge at TJ Maxx for $20. I size up, since striped woven pants can be tricky on me, and they fit well and aren't see through I can't find a Find for them, so they're in puctures #1-2, with the usual apologies for my terrible bathroom setup. I ripped the tags to wear them today to entertain some friends who will visit later on (very casual - we may go out to a local pub but will otherwise stay home and play board games). These will be great for my upcoming vacations. SCORE. ETA - that mirror and angle do nothing for me. I swear they're more flattering around the waistband in person.

The k/r is these black Anthro pants (by Maeve). They were backordered for a month and finally just arrived. I didn't want them for my vacation but was curious to try them as a summer work alternative. I kind of like that they're black palazzo pants and feel almost like a skirt. They are split leg on the sides, so hemming them would be too expensive (I had a button front dress hemmed recently and was ABSURDLY overcharged.) So I have to like them as is. I got my husband to take a photo to help with the usual angle issues (kitty windowsill photobomb!) Are they at least JFE? ETA decided to return. I have an acceptable substitute option and these came too late in the summer for me to want to figure them out.

NB: Guess which half of the closet behind me belongs to me, and which to my husband?
