My style recipe doesn’t include girly-girly things and overly feminine clothes have never appealed to me. Cargo pants have also never been part of my wardrobe because they’ve always seemed too masculine. Today’s ootd, proves once again, why I’ve learned to never say never about fashion which now includes these feminine cargo pants.
I changed my mind about them when I tried these ones on for you during a recent dressing room diary. They’re technically called Excursion pants, but the large exterior pockets and button tab at the ankle say “cargo” to me.

Feminine cargo pants outfit
I wore them for our BC Ferry ride to Victoria earlier this week. I paired them with a shrunken sweater from Target and my newest pair of these Tulip perforated sneakers. How many pairs of these Ilse Jacobsen slip-on sneakers can one woman own? That verdict is not in:)
These pants are an amazingly soft blend of Tencel and linen which upgrades the drape and feel of the fabric. The stitched front seam gives them a bit more structure and the lack of flaps on the pockets makes these a more elegant option which brings them easily into my style territory.
They come in 5 colors, in regular and petite. I’m wearing a regular. I wanted the cream, but I’m glad I chose this light sand color which feels more “out of Africa” to me and will transition easily into fall.
It was blustery on deck but mild, so this super affordable cardi was enough to keep me comfy. It comes in 5 colors in womens and womens plus. I’m wearing a small. It’s a chunky knit blend that I seriously debated, and now can’t imagine why I didn’t get it in 2 colors!
Swapping out the self-belt on a garment always upgrades its look so I chose this suede one with the wooden buckle. I also like how the faux horn buttons on the sweater add a bit of extra pattern. This cinnamon-colored tank is a new shade for me and I love how it coordinates with the other neutrals. It’s not the same color as my eyeglass frames but seems to pull that tone out in them.
I love the ferry but it was doing a fair amount of rocking and rolling during this trip so I got out on the deck to breathe the fresh air. It’s a sure-fire cure for the queasy seasick feeling I get on most boats. BTW- this is my current book. I’ve just started it so can’t speak to it how good it will be but I’m enjoying it so far.
What do you wear now that you never thought you’d try?
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
