Café Capri in Jewel Jacquard

If you'd seen my post on the café capri in leopard jacquard, you'd know this too is a faux jacquard. The online description says "in a stunning gem-print jacquard" when it should have switched the word order for accuracy. The pattern is simply printed so they're really capri pants in a gem jacquard print.

What got to me is the wool/silk blend. I've liked that combination in the past and was so excited, didn't notice it also includes something else. The exact composition is 59% wool, 27% silk and 14% nylon. Though I'd prefer the nylon portion to be zero, I don't regret getting the pants. They're another for my loud pants collection.

As you can see, the fabric is surprisingly silky even with substantial wool content. And as you can also see, the pants are not so capri on me.
Worn with the lovely cashmere cable cowlneck sweater and Charlie ruffled suede platform mary janes. On a recent sunny spring day still with slightly chilly temperatures.

Husby said it would be good for Easter. And I cannot believe it's April already!

  3. Love all your "loud pants"! After years of mostly wearing black, gray and denim bottoms, I've been building a collection of colorful pants and skirts this year. I think people in my office are starting to think I'm a crazy pants lady! :)

    1. Oh thanks so much! I was the same, it's so easy to put on a black skirt or pair of pants but once you break out of it, getting dressed can be so much more fun. The good thing about having the reputation of being the crazy pants lady is you can wear them with confidence because people expect it from you. That's what I tell myself. ;)
