If you’ve been around Dressed for My Day long, you know that I love my fleece lined pants in the winter. In the past I’ve shared them in navy, black and brown. But today I’m styling ivory fleece lined pants for a casual outing or even a Christmas gathering.

I’ve already worn these warm ivory pants in a couple of videos, but today I styled them with camel. I think ivory and camel is such a chic combination, so fresh and beautiful for this time of year.
I created a bookended outfit, which is one of my favorite style formulas. Simply wear the same color at the top and bottom of your outfit, whether that’s matching your shoes to your sweater or top or to a scarf or even a hat.
You could certainly apply that same bookending technique to ivory jeans or dressier trousers, too. It’s a smart technique to use when styling ivory or white jeans and pants in the winter because many of us don’t have white or ivory shoes we want to wear at this time of year (but that doesn’t mean you can’t!). My camel colored suede and faux shearling boots are some I got from Talbots last year. They don’t have this color this year, but they do have them in grey or black.
Let’s talk about these pants a bit.
I have these same fleece lined pants from Talbots in navy and black from previous years. I think these polyester blend pants look sharp, but they’re completely lined with a soft, 100% cotton fabric. So they keep you warm and comfortable during the winter months. I wear them at home and out and about. Of course, they’re also great apres ski pants for that fun winter vacation. And they’d be perfect for caroling, visiting with friends around a fire pit or other outdoor activities in the colder months. When it gets a tad warmer, I wear my navy or black fleece lined pants to play golf.
I find these pants to run true to size. Last year my mom got the black pants in the petite sizing and she and a few other petite readers found them to run a little large. But this year I’ve noticed buyer comments on Talbots’ website indicating that the ivory pants are running smaller in the petites than in previous seasons. The pants are also available in plus sizes (only in black in petite plus). Today they’re 30% off.
I chose to wear my J.Crew classic fit crewneck cashmere sweater in heather camel. But really any camel sweater would work for this outfit. I actually wish I had a v-neck camel sweater like this one, but, alas, I do not. Oh, and it’s 32% off. But J.Crew does do a great job with cashmere. It rarely goes on sale, but it’s some of the softest I’ve found and has a nice thickness. I’m wearing a medium.
I wanted to keep the look sporty and appropriate to the type of pants I’m wearing. But I also wanted to elevate it just a touch for outing worthy daywear. So I added gold jewelry that’s classic but impactful. I topped my sweater with my gold tassel bolo necklace and added some light around my face with gold Maggie hoop earrings.
I thought you might like to see a couple of other ways I’ve styled these same ivory fleece lined pants. You’ll notice I didn’t wear boots with these, so you don’t need to feel like you’re locked into boots with these pants. Really these pants are very versatile.
By the way, I found several other boot options in camel suede or faux suede that I’ve included in the shopping widget. They’re all available in only a handful of sizes and they seem to be going fast. But they’re some great boots and would be so versatile. Check the shopping widget below.
Well even if fleece lined pants are not on your radar, I hope you got a little style inspiration today. I do love the combination of ivory and camel or even white and camel. And remember, you absolutely can wear those white jeans in the winter if you’d like. So this is a great way to pull of that look, too. Thanks for dropping in!

Blessed for My Day
Over the years I’ve accumulated shepherd Christmas ornaments that I put on a tree in James’ office. This year it’s at our front entryway, so I get to see it much more frequently than in the past. I purchased those ornaments because, as a pastor, James is an under shepherd. He is called of God to gently, tenderly and responsibly care for and feed a “flock” of believers in the local church. My husband takes his calling very seriously and I like to think that this tree has served as a gentle and welcomed reminder to him of his calling.
But as I look at that little Christmas tree filled with sweet shepherds each day, I am reminded that we all have a Good Shepherd. He knows my name, tends to me gently and has lain down His life for me. Today let’s pause to reflect on the beautiful gift of that Good Shepherd. He is trustworthy, faithful, gentle and good.
I am the good shepherd, and I know My own, and My own know Me, just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. ~ John 10:14-15
