WIW : Cross Over Pants

Hi Ladies,

I was a little too keen to dress for Spring today and I did have to change into warmer pants and shoes before I went out again for lunch.

I wore this outfit to go shopping for white pants:)

Crossover Pants : Supre
White Under Top : Suzanne Grae
Navy Hi Low Top : Motto
Pumps : Wittner

I forgot how much I love these pants (they are only really wearable in Spring/Summer as they are quite light).  Despite being from what is known to be a 'cheaper' store, they are reasonable quality and wash and wear well.

I scoured the stores for white pants or jeans.  I was ready to spend to get a good pair and had done quite a bit of on line research.  I ended up in a store here called Valley Girl, which is very much aimed at the teen/tween demographic.  They had a fab pair of white ankle pants on sale which ticked all my boxes so I bought them.  They also had a great pair of white skinny jeans, also on sale, which I think I may go back for tomorrow.  Funny how we often find things in the most unexpected of places.

Thanks for looking.

xxx Deborah

P.s.  #3 is my blogger pose lol.  Seen a lot of bloggers doing this and as I was feeling a silly thought I would give it a try :)

    Those cross over pants are such an interesting and flattering shape. I'm loving the narrow white band of shirt, and it's not too long that we don't see the cross-over detail. Lovely proportions Deb.

    Like the blogger pose! You carry it off with aplomb :)

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Thanks Diane. It's tricky with top length as you don't want to obscure the crossover. Most of my tops are just a tad too long;)

    OMG I am floored by the gorgeousness of those pants. I adore that style but it seems so hard for most people (including models) to pull off...but not you! On you, these are proportional perfection.

    And I can't wait to see you in your white pants :)

  • Eliza replied 8 years ago

    I like crossover pants and agree they are tricky. That pair is gorgeous on you. Your proportions are a tutorial. Love the hint of white top peeking out from the dark blue sweater.

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    Those are lovely trousers on you, Deborah -- what a gorgeous outfit. I love the drape of it. As always, you nail the proportions perfectly. 

    And yay for leaving no retail stone unturned!! 

  • Word Lily replied 8 years ago

    Ooh, there are lovely details here! Loving the pants, the slim peek of white, the center front seam on the navy top.

  • Bijou replied 8 years ago

    How fantastic to find what you wanted in Valley Girl - and on special at that!  It just proves to shop in all stores, I am sure you will look amazing in them.

  • Janet replied 8 years ago

    Great outfit, and congrats on finding some new pieces in unexpected places!

    I love the idea of crossover pants but I never found a pair that worked for me. The closest contenders I found last year were too big on me and I never found another pair of them online, even though I tried. Wasn't meant to be!

    These pants are so very You! Love the blogger pose, will give it a try myself, too:-))

  • donnat replied 8 years ago

    Those crossover pants are pretty awsome. They look great on you.

  • Elizabeth P replied 8 years ago

    I love everything about this... the pants, the proportions, the outfit in general... and the "leave no retail store unturned" story.  Plus, you look amazing.

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    The best cross-over pants I've seen. You look fabulous, Debs. 

  • shedev replied 8 years ago

    Great pants.

  • Elly replied 8 years ago

    great crossover pants! I had my eye on a pair but I think they are just too high-waisted for me. You wear these so well, Deb. 

  • AviaMariah replied 8 years ago

    One of my favorites of yours!!  I have always admired crossover pants but couldn't quite picture how to wear them.  I love how you're wearing them with layers untucked (I had always envisioned tucking which I think is where I was having trouble).  I'm slightly jealous of your impending spring as I haul out my sweaters and booties.  :)

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 8 years ago

    Perfect styling for the pants, love it! Congrats on finding white pants that work well for you.

  • Cerinda replied 8 years ago

    Wow, the proportions are perfect!  And you rock the blogger pose.

  • Marley replied 8 years ago

    This outfit is perfect in every way Deborah!  You look beautiful -

  • Sara L. replied 8 years ago

    I love how you've styled the cross-over pants.  They seem like they could be tricky but you've made it look effortless. 

  • Sal replied 8 years ago

    Ha- I just modelled my new cross over pants in my nature thread.  

    These look great on you Deborah, elegant and simple with a twist.

  • Brooklyn replied 8 years ago

    Those are great pants. Love the whole outfit.

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    Amazing pants! One of the best crossover pairs I've seen. Gorgeous outfit, hope you get a warmer day to wear this out again soooon.

    (Hah is that a blogger pose? I did one of those this morning too ;) )

  • MsMaven replied 8 years ago

    Fabulous pants. The "Valley Girl" cracked me up. (Long ago I lived in "the Valley.")

    You look slim and sleek and beautiful these days.

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    You are making me want to go through the whole X-over pants search AGAIN! Gorgeous!

  • Jaime replied 8 years ago

    Perfect evolving Deborah - love the blue and white touches.

  • Beth Ann replied 8 years ago

    Ah!  I love this style of pant, and would buy them in a second if I were an Aussie!  You look elegant -- and the block heel is a great supporting act. 

    Glad you found white pants for spring!

  • Missey replied 8 years ago

    You are looking so sleek and divine!  Love it

  • Lyn D. replied 8 years ago

    Your Basque split-back sweater might work length at the front-wise too.
    Great find from Supre- did you go back to VG for the white jeans?

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Lyn good thinking, the navy top should be a perfect length. I didn't go back for the jeans. I still might but just not feeling a sense of urgency about them and I now have the unplanned expense of the skirted leggings;)
