Hi there! Today on Dressed for My Day I’m sharing a casual summer look created with my new blue cargo pants. I find myself wearing these pants often, so you’ll probably see me style them other ways in the future. But today let’s see how I created this casual summer look with a lightweight tie front t-shirt.
These high waist cargos are made with 97% cotton and 3% spandex for a flattering and comfortable stretch fit. They fit close to the body, but they don’t feel tight or binding at all. Just the contrary. These cargo pants are some of the most comfortable pants I’ve come across in a while.
These pants also come in espresso (dark brown), flax (beige) and thyme (grey-ish green). If you’re looking for a lightweight, sporty pant to wear casually this summer – perhaps as an alternative to shorts – these are a great choice. Truly, I don’t rave about and highly recommend every item I feature here. But I think these cargo pants are a versatile, comfortable and contemporary addition to my wardrobe. In fact, I’m probably going to order another pair.
I’d like to be able to recommend this t-shirt as highly. And I do like it. But warning: it runs extremely large. As you can see in the photos, my top is really too big. And it’s a small. Usually when I’m advised to size down, I simply need to wear the smaller of the two sizes I gravitate toward – a small. But in this case, I really need an x-small.
On the plus side, this striped tie front tee is oh so soft and comfortable. And I do like the look of it…if it fits correctly. Also I love this shade of green and it also comes in a pretty blue, which you’ll see me where in another post.
I’ve been topping my cargo pants with my white denim jacket during the cool mornings and evenings.
Looking back at these photos, I wish I’d styled these cargo pants with a top that fit better. Oh well. This striped tie front tee is a great top, but definitely keep the sizing in mind. At any rate, I’ve enjoyed wearing these cargo pants with graphic tees and solid t-shirts as well.

FASTer Way to Fat Loss Update
I love sharing my experience with the FASTer Way to Fat Loss with my readers because this program has proven to be a sustainable, workable lifestyle shift for me. I’ve lost and kept off 20 pounds for over a year now using the precepts in the FWTFL. If you need to lose a lot of weight or a few pounds, if you need to go the extra mile or get off the couch, if you’d like to tone up or get well, you are worth the cost and the effort.
You can learn more about my experience with the FWTFL in this post. Or you can check out their website and register for this effective program here. Finally, if you’ve already finished a round or are in the intro program, you can sign up for the monthly FWTFL membership program here.
Blessed for My Day
Have you felt the sting of rejection? Whether your work was handed back to you because it wasn’t up to par or your invitation was turned down from a lack of interest, rejection hurts. I’ve known the pain of rejection. I remember going through a particular season of being rejected by a dear friend when I truly felt like I wore a big L for Loser on my forehead. Rejection can leave a mark on you.
But remember, sweet gal, that there is One who will never reject you. In fact, when others push you away or simply ignore you, God invites you in. He longs to draw you close, hold you tight, engage with you and be your forever friend. If the King of the universe says you are no Loser, you, my dear, are no loser. You are beloved.
Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me! ~ Psalm 66:20
