Happy Monday, sweet gals! It’s finally heating up here in Cincinnati, and I’m enjoying the warmth. It feels more like spring. That has me excited about the style series I have planned for this week. I’ll be showing you four different ways that I’m styling these terrific lightweight, sage green, slim utility pants. But you can apply these styles to other pants that may already be in your closet, too.
I chose to style these Sage Green Slim Utility Pants four ways because they have become such a workhorse in my wardrobe. I love the tapered silhouette, the soft “lived-in” fabric and the distinctly casual vibe of these Slim Utility Pants. I also have them in camel and just ordered them in opal. Yeah, I kinda like these pants. They fit true to size; I’m wearing a Chico’s 1 or regular 8.
Like I said, you’ll be seeing these Sage Green Slim Utility Pants four ways this week. And I hope you’ll check back in for the other three styles because they’re all quite unique. But today I’ve styled the Sage Green Slim Utility Pants with black. Oh, I love me some black!
By the way, these Slim Utility Pants are currently 30% off.
I find that sage or soft army green is such a versatile color to have in my closet because it pairs with so many colors I love to wear. And I especially like how it plays well with black. I simply topped the pants with my favorite black v-neck tee for a casual but pulled together look. My black v-neck tee is 30% off today.
By the way, strange thing about this black v-neck tee. I have this tee in a size small in both the black and white, but when I ordered the grey recently it felt too small. So I’m returning it for a medium probably. But I’ve worn this black v-neck tee for over a year, washed it many times and it still fits and looks beautifully polished. At any rate, the sizing may have changed or the grey may just run a little smaller.
Empress shoes, a small online only company founded by two brothers, reached out to me recently and gifted me these black flats. Honestly, I had low expectations. But as it turns out I reach for these comfortable flats more than any of my other shoes right now. They’re that comfortable. These comfi flats also come in white and beige and they feature well cushioned soles and soft pliable leather that conforms to your foot. And get this. You can try them – and WEAR THEM – and still return them within 30 days if you’re not happy with them. Use code MYDAY for 10% off your first purchase with Empress Shoes.
I decided to go with silver jewelry for this look, so I reached for my Parker chain necklace and compass pendant necklace. They create such a nice layered duo. My earrings are no longer available, but these would make a nice substitute. My bracelet is also discontinued, but this cuff is similar.
Finally, I topped the look off with my no-fail go-to, my classic Levi’s denim jacket. I think it works perfectly with this otherwise black and green outfit, lightening it up a bit.
Watch for me to style these versatile Sage Green Slim Utility Pants differently three more times this week. I think it’s so important to be able to create multiple looks with the pieces we add to our closet, don’t you?
Thanks so much for dropping in today. I hope you have a lovely spring day!

Today let’s practice a little mind control. No, we can’t control other people’s minds. But we can, with practice, control our own thinking. And when we are diligent about filtering our thoughts, we have more success monitoring our words and deliberately choosing our actions. Self-control very much begins in the mind.
At the very least, let’s choose to only dwell on that which is true. If negative or worrisome thoughts capture your attention today, choose to filter them through that baseline criteria. “Is this completely true? What does God say is true about it?” Beware: Don’t settle for what your feelings tell you is true. Truth is what God says about your situation. Start there.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. ~ Philippians 4:8
