I realize “Coastie” is not a term everyone is familiar with, but whenever I see khakis and stripes, I automatically think of one. While this wasn’t a Pinterest inspiration, it was a knight in shining armor inspiration. Last May we had two wedding in back-to-back weekends out on the east coast. Being a girl, I had no idea what I was going to pack or what I was going to pair for outfits. So, the two weeks prior I spent raiding my closet and figuring out what I could make into outfits. My knight was watching me the entire time and finally offered up an option – what about my khakis with the striped shirt. At first I thought he was crazy, then I remember that he’s from the east coast and that’s the style. So, I tried it on and paired a denim blazer with it. Since then those khakis have been less than flattering on me, but on Sunday I decided to take advantage of Gap’s $35 chino sale and bought a pair of skimmer khakis. My knight also bought a pair of khakis (although the non-skimmer type), so we’ve already decided that we need to wear them on the same day with our chambray shirts. That’s what cool couples do, right?
