Mauve trousers + Stripes

Somewhat surprisingly, I’ve been really embracing the lighter palette this season. While I really dig my typical dark neutrals, the lighter neutrals have been really calling my name as of late. I was on the fence about buying these dark blush/mauve-colored Martie pants from J.Crew, but they were on sale for something ridiculously cheap that I felt like I had nothing to lose (except well, $25). But I’m actually quite thrilled with them as they are a big departure from the black/grey/navy work trousers that are in regular outfit rotation during the work week. Here I paired them with stripes as I try to grow accustomed to mixing and matching mauve with a color that’s more adventurous.

    what size did you buy and what’s your waist measurement if you don’t mind me asking?

      These are 00R and my waist is 25-25.5″. You can see my full measurements under my About/FYI page, if that helps!

    Pink suits more on the top, but its no way brighter when you have it on your legs. The stripes are the most liked ones.
