It may not officially be spring yet, but we had a glorious spring-like day yesterday. So I’m feeling oh so joyful. We got out and shot photos for the blog for the first time in over a month, and it felt so good. I’ve got some “happy” fashions from Target and J.Jill coming to the blog soon. But first I’ve got to finish sharing the photos we took on our working staycation about a month ago. And really this is perfect timing because these modern linen pants I’m sharing today are 20% off in Athleta’s Friends & Family sale starting today.
I absolutely fell in love with linen pants last summer. I collected linen pants from Eileen Fisher, Chico’s and Christopher & Banks. And I’ll definitely be wearing all of them again this summer. But none of those are quite as modern and fresh as these chambray blue linen pants from Athleta.
I can think of so many ways to wear these chambray blue linen pants this spring and summer. When I put this outfit together I was envisioning what I’d wear on a cool evening at the beach. Sometimes I go with my parents to St. Augustine Beach, Florida, in February, but this year I chose not to go due to the pandemic. But if I’d gone, these chambray blue linen pants would have been in my suitcase for sure.
I’m wearing my TTS 8 in the regular length and they’re plenty long for wearing with sneakers or sandals, which is what I’d normally wear with my linen pants. Remember, I’m 5’8″. But Athleta does carry these chambray blue linen pants in petite and tall sizes 0-16 and in regular length in sizes 00-26. They also come in black and white.
I also appreciate that these chambray blue linen pants are a little sportier than my other ones. They feature an elasticized waistband, a sporty draw cord and functional zipper pockets. I have a feeling these will be favorites this summer. And right now Athleta is having a Friends & Family event, so if you register with them (for free) you can get 20% off your order. Athleta rarely offers across the board discounts like this, so this is the time to snag these pants if you think you might like them in your summer wardrobe. While they’re a little pricier than some brands, Athleta is my go-to store for workout clothes because they fit great, stand up to hard workouts and make me feel inspired.
I topped the linen pants with a bold pink center-seam sweater from Chico’s. The center-seam sweater comes in other pretty colors, too, and it’s currently marked down. Plus Chico’s is offering a buy more save more deal. Save 25% off one style, 30% on two or 40% on three.
But I’m including other pretty sweater options in the shopping widget, too. I can definitely see these linen pants looking marvelous with this striped ribbed hoodie sweater from Macy’s. It’s already 60% off and you can receive an extra 20% off with code READY.
I completed this cool seaside look with my white sneakers and a wide-brimmed straw hat. My hat is a couple of years old, but if you need to add one to your wardrobe I found a great shell-trimmed straw hat at J.Jill and it’s already marked down and an extra 30% off in the bag.
I kept my jewelry minimal, as I would if I were wearing it at the beach, adding just my Tima stud earrings.
By the way, Athleta also has these linen pants in shorts. The Cabo linen shorts also come in white and hearth rose, which appears to be a rosy brown. And in case you’d like to check out linen pants from other places, I’ve included some other options in the shopping widget below. It may be a little early for most of us to wear linen right now, but I found last summer that linen pants get sold out quickly. And that’s why I wanted to share these Cabo linen wide leg pants with you today when they’re 20% off.

Blessed for My Day
Have you been trying to figure out what God is doing in a certain circumstance in your life? I’ve found that to be a frustrating pursuit. Rarely…make that never…does God do things the way I would do them or even the way my mind would imagine. In fact, the Bible teaches us that God does things beyond our imaginations. We cannot even hope or imagine what God will bring about. Indeed, God works in mysterious ways.
But because we also know that God is good, we can trust that whatever He is doing, He will bring to completion. He is up to something good. God is trustworthy. He is for us, not against us. He is working all things together for our good. Can you cling to that today rather than trying to figure out His ways?
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. ~ Isaiah 55:8-9
