The Summer Neutral I’m Loving
I am naturally drawn to neutrals, no matter what season or for what occasion. Have you ever looked in your closet and thought, “I needed some color?”. I think we all have thought that from time to time, but it seems those neutrals are always upfront and always on repeat for me. I love blacks and whites, but I think the “khaki” color is a neutral we sometimes ignore. Whether it is the lightest stone color, beige, or a darker khaki…it is one of the easiest colors to style. Today I am sharing 6 looks for all the neutral khaki lovers. Let me know which outfit you like best!
I found these cute knit wide-leg cropped pants by Time and Tru walking through my local Walmart. They were not that appealing on the hanger, but I thought I would give them a try since they were under $17. To my surprise, they are some of the most comfortable pants I have tried this summer. They are extremely soft and lightweight, have a smocked waist, relaxed fit, and come in multiple colors and patterns. See the pants here. These can easily be dressed up for work or worn casually on the weekend. See how I styled them below.
Don’t overlook the cute and comfortable Time and Tru crochet trim tank. This was another item that wasn’t jumping out at me, but once I got it home and tried it on….and oh, it was so worth the $11! LOL! I have worn this tank repeatedly and love how it can be worn with joggers, shorts, or I can dress it up like I did with these cropped knit pants with a cute kimono. The tank is a relaxed fit and fits TTS. (I am wearing a medium in both the pants and top for reference). The top comes in multiple color options, see the tank here. This would also look super chic with a denim jacket or cute blazer for a night out with the hubs!
Want a more casual look? I decided to style it with a chambray button-down and I added the crochet bucket bag that seems to pair with everything! My cute espadrilles are low in stock, so I added my favorites in the carousel below.
One of my looks this week was this outfit. I styled the crochet trim tank with cropped straight twill pants, cognac sandals, and a white handbag. The twill cropped pants from Aeropostale, are a slim fit, and I sized up for a looser look. I am wearing a size 10, my normal size is 8. The looser look is more flattering for me than the tighter slim fit, or at least I think so, lol. These are only $15 right now and I’m not sure how long the sale will be going on. I added other straight-cropped twill pants below in the carousel that are available in lighter and darker tones. See my twill pants here.
If you love a linen jogger, you might want to take a look at these cute joggers from Banana Republic Factory. These fit TTS with a relaxed fit. They are a cargo-style jogger with pockets, a tie-waist, and are a pull-on style. These come in multiple colors and are 50% off and you can get an extra 15% off at checkout! I am wearing a medium in the joggers, see them here. These are on my rotation list also and are some of my ” most worn” summer pants. I am loving this look with the Birkenstocks!
We all love a laid-back, comfy casual look, so I had to include the beloved Bermuda shorts. Before we talk about the shorts, we must talk about the Dog Mom tee! I couldn’t pass this tee up and if you are a dog mom, you know why! 😜 The tee is under $10 and it’s perfect to wear when Ziva and I are out grabbing a coffee in the Jeep. (She LOVES a pup cup, ha!) This is a Junior tee, so I sized up one size to an XL and it fits very loose and relaxed. If you like your tees to be more fitted, buy your regular size. See the tee here. My Bermuda Shorts fit TTS but are getting low in sizes in this color. See the shorts here, or check out the carousel below for more options.

The tank with the kimono looks great on you. I like the versatility of it. Dog mom & Bermuda shorts close second for me. Prayers for your mom & you. Enjoy your day with Brooklyn!!
Thank you!! You know I like a “doggie” shirt 😂😂
I actually have the twill wide leg pants in blue and black. I found them at my Wal-Mart in early spring. Love them. Very comfortable and stylish. Lots of ways to wear them. I think I will wear them for my pedicure today. Only draw back they don’t wash that well even on a gentle cycle. They do require a light ironing.
That’s good to know for future reference!! I hang mine to dry and used a steamer on mine, worked out pretty good. They are comfy though!!🙌🏼🙌🏼
Love the kimono, where did you get it?
Mine is out of stock, but this one is almost identical
Love the picture with the kimono, where did you get the sandals you have on in that picture?
Thanks! Mine has sold out, but this one is very similar
What about the sandals you have on in the picture, where did you get those?
Are they the braided ones? If so, here is that link. Size up 1/2 size. These are some of my favorites!!!
Sorry your mom is struggling. It’s so hard when a parent is sick. We are going through that too. Hugs and prayers to you and your mom! I love the room you are in-so pretty! All the outfits are so fresh and fun. I would wear them all-and yes, definitely the Dog Mom shirt!! Have a blessed day.
Thank you so much Jami!! Yes girl, prayers appreciated!! She’s so tired of hurting and losing most of her independence. She’s called right much crying from time to time, she can’t do that with the boys, they don’t understand how we girls get. We are looking for a full recovery and healing!! And thank you for the comment!! I love all the outfits too 🙌🏼🙌🏼❤️❤️
So sorry to hear that your Mom is having a difficult time of it. I am praying for her and you. I tend to lean more toward neutrals. I have that Dog Mom shirt too 🙂 We leave tomorrow morning to see the Florida kids and grandkids, yay! I can’t wait!! Have a wonderful day 🙂
Awe man!! I’m so jealous!! Have a great time, I know you miss them and can’t wait to see them. I knew you might have that shirt 😂😂
There’s two outfits that I actually love. Time and Tru wide leg with crochet top and pumps (wish I could wear) and straight crop Aeropostale pants outfit. Then the Bermuda shorts! I’m not a dog mom. I have a cat actually and I just named three 😂 I’m actually a color kind of girl and don’t hardly wear natural colors although I do find myself looking in my closet and saying it looks dark in here 😂 I use to wear natural when I had to work, so that’s probably a reason why I don’t like it! I have Time and Tru wide leg olive green palm tree pants that I honestly love! They’re so comfortable! You always look ahhhmazing and enjoy this beautiful day with Brooklyn! I’m so sorry your Mom has turned the worse! Sending lots of prayers and love to you and your Mom! You’re always in my prayers! Love you Penny💛🦋❤️🌻
I love the palm tree ones, I almost bought them lol!! When I worked at the bank, I found myself staring at a dark closet too 😂😂 I’m trying very hard to incorporate some color into my wardrobe this summer. I think it brightens my spirits ( that’s probably just in my head though) Hope your day is a great day!! ❤️
Finally, someone has styled a kimono with wide leg crops! And it looks great by the way! I love these crops that you feature. I might have to stroll through a Walmart soon since they’re out of stock on a lot of sizes and colors online.
I giggled when I read the first line!😂 They are cute!! Not so much on the rack, but adorable on!! Happy Weekend! And have a great 4th!! ❤️
