Today I woke up and OMG SUN!!! It inspired me to try and style a summer pant for this winter day…my favorite Cargo Jogger Pants from Banana Republic. These pants were from Banana Republic’s Heritage Collection (Summer of 2015), that season’s collection was a throwback to the company’s origination in safari wear! This past summer they were my favorite pant, so comfortable, and in Arizona heat so breathable and lightweight! Due to these favorable summer qualities I had pushed them way back in my closet (figuratively since my closet is now a narrow Ikea version). The sun today dared me to do something different!

So, I ended up wearing summer pants for this warm day in winter!

I created warmth with a layered cardigan under my thick Levi’s denim jacket. The long length of the cardigan even partially protected my legs!

We use denim jackets as a spring/summer layering piece. In reality a great, thick denim can protect from the elements and keep you warm!


Albeit a sunny day, the wind made sure to keep it wintery! However, with my layers and warm jacket I was able to survive in my summer pants!

What’s your favorite summer piece? Would you wear it in winter? Let me know in the comments!
