Twinning With Andrea

I am beyond thrilled to be joining my friend, Andrea from Living On Cloud Nine, for a twinning collaboration today. Y'all know that I don't consider myself a fashion blogger, but when one of my favorite fashion bloggers and best friends makes a delightful suggestion (I think I've been binging too much of The Crown this weekend, but of course it is a delightful suggestion!) to share these great comfy wide leg pants from JC Penny's, I simply could not say no. Any time I get to twin with her, it's such a treat! 
I honestly can't remember how Andrea and I both ended up sporting these colorful striped pants because it certainly wasn't planned. Great minds think alike, maybe? When I was younger and ended up wearing the same outfit as someone else, my mother use to say, "That just means you have great taste." Yes! I think that's it! Andrea and I have great taste! Although I truly believe her taste is better than mine. If you don't currently follow her blog or IG stories, you are truly missing out! Andrea and I finally got to meet last October in Nashville, along with our friends, ShellyChrissyKellyann, and Lisa. As with all these girls, it was like we had been friends forever and that is one of the best feelings in the world. I love this Girlie for her genuine friendship and kindness to others. She makes me laugh so dang hard and gives the best advice. We love the same books, she's an 80's girl, too, and her recipes are out of this world delicious! 

So here's my story of how I came to own these cute pants. I actually saw another blogger wearing a similar pair of striped pants with a cute t-shirt and I thought they were just adorable. I happened to be in Penny's around Easter when I saw a pair on an aisle rack. I nearly passed them up.  They are the brand a.n.a., which is one of my favorite JC Penny brands.  I have several pairs of a.n.a. dress pants that I wear to the office, and once I tried these soft linen pants on, I was in love. They are office worthy and even the nuns would approve (inside office joke).
I just love how Andrea styled hers with the gold cropped tank. So cute and perfect for the hot summer days ahead. And I especially like that fact that even though we did not plan our looks, we both styled our pants with a jean jacket since we both tend to get cold in restaurants (or the office for me!) during the hot months.
This is going to be a GREAT week, Loves! My busy season at work has come to an end, so I can enjoy our summer break and slower, laid back routine. I hope your summer is off to a great start, too!

  16. Love how your looks are similar yet your own. Need to move my denim jacket to the forefront of the closet and quit always reaching for a cardi. With the AC full blast everywhere it is the perfect summer wrap.

    Just bought my first wide legs...in a jumpsuit. Loved how cool and comfy they were. Mine are striped, too. But the stripe in y'alls' is so warm and pleasing. Mine is kind of drab. Oh, well, might need a second brighter pair now!
