Confident and Comfortable with Linen Pants and Metallics

July 9, 2014

Outfit with white linen pants

Every Summer I go back to the darkest part of my closet and drag a pair of linen pants that I had purchased on sale the year before. I keep updating them with a new pair each year since they can easily turn yellow at the bottom, mainly when they're white and very long (I like them that way) so they sweep the floor. I consider linen pants a classic piece that for me never goes out of style, however, finding the appropriate fit is the key to feeling comfortable and chic in them. I personally like them wide-legged, drawstring low waist with front and back patch pockets. 
Linen pants are made for movement -- if you don't feel comfortable and confident enough walking, running or even jumping around in your pants, then maybe you should try a different fit, color or size.
My love for the metallic trend continues, so I decided to pair my already bright white pants with a bright gold top and shiny silver accessories.

Cada verano me voy de nuevo a la parte más oscura de mi armario y arrastro un par de pantalones de lino que he comprado en oferta el año anterior. Cada año trato de actualizarlos con un par nuevo debido a que se me ponen amarillos en el ruedo, porque los uso bien largos casi barriendo el suelo. Yo personalmente considero los pantalones de lino como una pieza clásica que nunca pasa de moda, sin embargo, encontrar el ajuste adecuado es la clave para sentirse cómodo y elegante en ellos. Personalmente, me gustan los bolsillos de parche, piernas anchas y bajo en las caderas. 
Este tipo de pantalones están hechos para movimiento - si usted no se siente lo suficientemente cómoda caminando, corriendo y hasta saltando con estos pantalones de lino, entonces tal vez debería probar un ajuste, color o tamaño diferente.
Mi pasión por la tendencia metálica continua, por lo que decidí emparejar mis pantalones blancos con atuendos dorados y plateados.

I was having so much fun, but I believe I proved my point. Now it is time for posing (my least favorite part of photo-shoots).

Me estaba divirtiendo tanto, pero creo que ya entendieron mi punto. Ahora vamos con las fotos de poses (mi parte menos favorita de las sesiones fotográficas)

  1. What a fun post Carelia! Posed,'s all good! You've got that amazing long stride!

    1. LOL..Sue, my problem with posing is that I don't feel natural, sometimes my boyfriend has to tell me jokes or even play music with his phone in order to get a decent photos-hoot. When I'm in motion it's so much easier for me, because I feel natural and myself.
      Thanks Sue ;-)

  2. What a lovely post, Carelia! Love your linen pants, I had a pair like this - wore them till they had holes! :) (It's funny to discover it while you're actually wearing the pants!)

    Love you in your metallic top and sandals too. You always look great and natural on your photos! I started taking photographs in movement, inspired by your blog! :)

    1. Thanks so much Natalia! I experienced something similar with a pair of black dress pants…lol. I'm glad you found my photos with movement inspiring. Every time I try on clothes I jump, I walk fast, I do all type of movements in front the mirror before I buy, just to make sure they look good even when I am in motion. I love websites like Asos, that besides their stock picture, they also show a short video of a model walking on a runway wearing the item.
