These chinos from Old Navy are the best-fitted pants ever. They are super soft and incredibly comfortable with Seth fabric. Hands down my favorite dress pants lately. I also bought them in rust color, all the 3 colors (olive, rust and mustard) are perfect for fall. Currently, the pants are under $25 after 30% off. Check out all my favorites from Old Navy HERE

My personal style lies somewhere in between “girly girl” and “tomboy”. I feel most myself when I can achieve a balance between feminine and masculine elements in an outfit. The popular French girl style is the perfect amalgamation of these elements but in a minimal and subtle way.

Apart from finding the perfect balance, I like to add a pop of color or mixing different colors in my outfit without looking flashy. Balance between soft and structured pieces or mixing rough/edgy and polished pieces, balancing can be tricky

The easy way to find balance is by choosing either feminine or masculine foundation pieces and adding the other elements to it. In this outfit, I went for a pink feminine tee, skirt chinos that have a feminine cut and added masculine elements like the boyfriend blazer, loafers, and hat.
