Look for Less ~ Skinny Cargo Pants

When these pants first started cropping up everywhere, I wasn't sure I was quite on-board with the trend.  But, after having tried a few pairs on, I found they are a great option for spring.  They are lighter weight than jeans, super comfortable and the ultimate cool-girl staple.  At first I didn't think they would be flattering on me, but as with most clothing, it is all about finding a great fit for your body type.  Some examples:

As usual, I was biding my time until a frugal opportunity came my way.  And I finally got the chance to snatch some up at a low price this past weekend.  These will be great to wear now...and they will be perfect when fall rolls around!  I love that I can dress them up with platform sandals and booties OR I can pair them with gladiator flats for a more laid-back vibe.
The Limited Skinny Cargo Pant - retail $70; bought for $8.99

Details I love: Dark olive green is more slimming than the faded-wash versions, perfect pocket placement makes for a flattering fit without adding bulk to my thighs, side ankle zippers give them some edge.
