During the summer when it’s blazing hot (and when you have no air conditioner), shorts are pretty much an essential. But I know so many women who don’t like to wear shorts for one reason or another, but it’s just too hot for jeans. So joggers and cropped pants are the happy medium! They’re everywhere this summer, so there are lots of good choices. I love this white linen pair, and this pair is full length pants, but they’re so lightweight that they’d still be nice and cool (and hello, legs for days).

This olive green pair is lightweight and comfy, and even though they’re green, they’re neutral so they go with everything. I paired mine with a plain white tee (another summer essential — and this one is so soft and comfortable and only $20!), some simple sandals, and a baseball cap. A cool summer outfit without wearing shorts!

    I love these pants. They look like they would be great for a casual date night or for a day of doing things outside. And you could totally pair them with sandals or sneakers too.

    Those pants are the cutest!! The Nordstrom link says they’re not available anymore but it looks like they’ve been moved to Nordstrom Rack. Just wanted to share the info!

    It’s official. I. LOVE. THESE. PANTS. So much, Merrick! They are seriously the CUTEST and they look so relaxed and comfortable. Not like some pants that you have to be SO careful with not to get dirty and not to ruin. These are great! Awesome post, as always!!! <3

  6. Khaki is always my favourite. I love these pants. Because they are more comfortable and looks cool ans you are looking so pretty. At Alysse Sterling I have found the best collection of clutch bags. Have a look!
