What I Wore Real Mom Style: Capris!!! #RealMomStyle

lee slender Secret Rossi capri


Over the weekend it hit 80 which means warm enough for capris! Lee sent me two pairs of capris to style for spring and they are both great. The first pair is the Lee Slender Secret Rossi capri, just like the name says these fabulous jean capris are slimming with the slender secret stretch material that keeps your looking slim and trim. I have really been loving coral this spring and I knew the dark wash of these capris would be a great contrast to really make coral pop so I paired them with my favorite coral leather motorcycle jacket. Under the jacket I put my new Peter Som for DesignNation pineapple tank so as the day warmed up I just took off the jacket, add to it some coral wedges and voila a fun spring outfit!

Colored pants are huge for spring as are colored capris and the Lee Classic fit Monroe belted capri comes in several colors including sugarmint, the color I chose. Upon seeing these capris I immediately new I wanted to pair them with navy and I had the perfect linen blend sweater from Old Navy to wear. I decided to throw on my fedora at the last minute and I love the laid back effect, I can almost pretend I am on vacation somewhere beautiful!
