Black Eyelet and Stripes

Here’s a #tbt to the end of last summer. My hair is lighter and shorter now but I would still rock this outfit.

Necklace: Beacon’s Closet

I saw these black eyelet capri pants in a consignment shop in Seattle. I wanted them so badly but I was about to fly to NYC and I knew shopping opportunities were in my future. However, after sleeping on it, I rushed back to the store and bought them. They’re just too neat to pass up.

I see a lot of white eyelet but black is harder to come by. For some weird reason, I don’t look scantily clad—even though the pants aren’t lined. Boy-cut briefs and strategically placed pockets seem to do the trick.

I wore the pants with the honeycomb necklace I bought in New York. I kept finding honeycomb patterns wherever I went: a dress, this necklace, a manhole cover, neon tubing artwork in a subway stop. There were so many honeycomb patterns that I decided to get a honeycomb added to my bee tattoo.

Stripes and eyelet almost count as pattern mixing. I went with a neutral top, but these pants will look great with a bright shirt too, or even just plain old white.

  1. A beautiful outfit Jean, glad you didn’t pass this opportunity because black eyelet is unique. Hopefully, they will fit me if you ever don’t want them anymore! I just posted about your fabulous clothing exchange and the gorgeous dress I got! Still looking for the photos I took of the delicious vegan food you served!

    The honeycomb patterns that we saw everywhere in NYC was amazing! Glad we bought these cool necklaces! ❤
