With pants like these…

dressy casual outfit for fall

vintage inspired tortoise bracelet

Pants: Old Navy | Blouse: Tinley Road (old, similar here and here) | Jacket: Laundry | Necklace: Bauble Bar (similar here) | Cuff: J.Crew (old, similar here and here) | Shoes: Tory Burch (old, similar here and here) | Bag: Dooney & Bourke

I should be embarrassed to tell you that I wore these pants four days last week. Should be. But when pants are this comfortable and versatile, ain’t no shame, girl! I’d been looking for a pair of fatigue-colored skinnies for a while, and when I spotted these online at Old Navy, thought I’d give them a shot (especially since I’ve had good luck with other pants from their Rockstar line, and the price was so affordable!). Hello, pleasant surprise. I’ve been wearing these with t shirts at home during the day, with sweaters for casual errands, and with a blazer or tailored jacket for dinner dates. They look good with flats; great with heeled boots. They’re just an all around fantastic pant, and my new faves. Know what else is a fave?

This navy blouse, for similar reasons of versatility. It’s actually a sleeveless, silk crepe-style top that I love wearing alone with shorts or jeans in the summer, but because the fabric looks dressier, it also plays well under tailored jackets (like the one I mentioned scoring at Loehmann’s last week). And, I love busting out these perforated wedges this time of year. They’re total cab to curb shoes, but so unique that I’ll put up with a little bit of pain. The things we do for style, right?

  8. I love the pants! I have been searching for army green skinnies for a long time now, but I hadn’t thought of Old Navy. Off to check now-if they have them in long, I’m sold!

  10. This outfit has a ton of unexpected pairings (to me, at least) but they work together so well! Love that cute jacket, especially.

    I bought similar colored pants and wore them the whole weekend! I didn’t think I could dress it up the way you did. I’ll have to try it. You pull it off well!

  17. This post makes me feel so much better about the fact that I’ve been living in a chambray tunic I bought last week. What can you say? When you find something you love, it’s hard to swap it out! Those pants are awesome — Rachel at Pencil Shavings Studio just recommended the ON skinny jeans, so with both of you fashionable ladies behind the brand I’ll have to make my way over there sometime soon.

  21. How do the old navy pants hold up after a few washes? I know a lot of bloggers have been wearing them lately in sponsored posts, and honestly, every time they do I love them! But I’m just wondering how well they hold up longer term… just cuz they’re so affordable and I’m a skeptic! Thoughts?

      Hi! I like them enough that I for realsies bought them! I haven’t done a ton of washes with these pants and some cords I bought, but jeans that I got last spring have held up perfectly — just as good as the pricier AG jeans I got from Anthro! I’ll report back if any of the newer pants fall apart or anything.
