I have been cursed (or blessed, your pick) with carrying my weight in my thighs/bum area and this has always been a problem when it comes to buying pants. I’ve vented about this on PP before but this summer I was getting very jealous of the white pants I constantly see around NYC and my weekend trips to the beach. During one of Shopbop’s 20% off sales, I decided to try the Alice and Olivia pants in white because A&O Cady shorts are the only ones I’ll wear as they don’t make me look like a stuffed sausage. These pants are a dream. The white is thick and far from see-through and the wide waistband is incredibly flattering. See below for my adventure. I wore these pants with an Aqua top I bought with Lauren about four summers ago (similar here and here) and Loeffler Randall Rachel sandals. I loved the crisp contrast of pure white against cobalt!
