I generally do not find a lot of khakis that I like and seem stylish, but these pink khakis were a great find at Gap.
I kept my look casual with a denim top, but added heels to look dressy enough for work. I found these Marc Jacobs heels at a local charity shop, seemingly worn maybe once in the past (if that), for $10! You can read more about that fab find here.
I also added a cute head scarf that I found at my local consignment shop. The scarf matched perfectly, and added a bit of whimsy with the travel/architectural design. Plus, aren’t headscarves the best for quick hairdos?
Pink khaki pants: Gap ($17 marked down from $50)
Denim top: H&M ($20 marked down from approx $40)
Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs (paid $10, generally retail for anywhere from $300-$450)

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I have to confess that I very rarely read the fit description label on pants. Not reading these in the past was a real shopping error but it actually saved me a lot of time to read the label on these pants at Gap! I went straight for the pants that were labeled “relaxed in the hip” and the pants fit perfectly. You can also look up most stores’ size chart, if you want to measure yourself before you go out and shop. Gap’s size chart, for example, is listed here: http://www.gap.com/browse/sizeChart.do?cid=2082
I highly recommend either of these time savers if you are looking for work pants and do not have a ton of time on your hands…and then, of course, when you’re in the store head straight to the sale section!
2) I plan to transition these pants from summer to fall by adding a sweater and closed toed heels. Knowing Chicago weather, fall is likely still a few months away. However, I like to think through how many seasons I can wear a piece prior to purchasing. I think I can likely wear these pants for three seasons (spring, summer, fall), so I consider them a good investment for versatility, especially for $17!
Hope the start of the week is going well, readers! Thanks for stopping by!
