WIWW: Caramel or Khaki (?)

For the last month or so my department has been planning and preparing for a HUGE health and wellness fair coming up next week for one of our biggests clients.  In a final planning meeting last week my boss casually said:
"We've ordered polos for everyone.. and plan to were khakis and comfortable shoes with it."

Khakis? Really? 

Circa 1998.. take me back to middle school.

Do real khakis even still exisit??

My and the girls that I work with had a minor brain bleed thinking about where in the world to find these pants. 

So, whats the big deal?  Well, as you all know.. I have not just one, but TWO infants I am diapering these days.   Going through over 200 diapers a week.

I don't shop with ease anymore.  Sad day. So, if I am going to make a purchase, it better be on something I plan to wear more than once. 

When my boss said 'khakis' I had horrible flashes of front pleats and MC hammer like poofage.  Even after a brief Google search, I came up with nothing worth a swipe of my card.  Enter my perfect go-to... LOFT {shocker}

I searched under their pants and came to realize that khakis aren't  khakis any more.  They are caramel or camel or tan or natural.  I promise these pants sell better if they dont have the 'k' word attached to it.

These ankle pants caught my eye.. in caramel.  SOLD.
AND.. because they were have a 40% off sale.. I snagged this shirt and I'm totally in love with it.  It is more of a tunic in length if you ask me.  Light and breathable with this crazy hot weather making its way to Texas in the coming Summer months. I want to get it in the other 3 colors it comes in.  But, of course.. I went for the coral/orange first. 

Typical Amber MO.

Alrighty boss lady, I'm all set.  Khakis and all.

Love the "caramel/tan" pants, but I really love that top!! Flowy and loose tops are my fave. And your hair looks perfect! Love you!

That coral top is so pretty, it's a great color on you! I call then tan now. Your right, calling it khaki feels so 90's, haha! Visiting from the Random Wednesday link up today :)

I love that top. Such a pretty color on you. I feel the same way about needing clothes that can be used for work, play and church.

Sarah said...

Love those pants! I have been wanting to add more work appropriate pants to my attire that aren't dress pants! I think these fit the bill!
