I never expected to fall completely in love with these J Brand Houlihan Cargo Pants in Vintage Olive! I just got them last week and I have worn them lots already. I had never been a fan of cargo pants since I didn’t really class them as feminine but after seeing these pants on lots of celebs it really changed my mind. I haven’t seen them look bad on anyone yet and so many celebrities are a fan of them! They have really taken the fashion world by storm.
These Houlihan cargo pants are made of Japanese Twill so they are super soft! I had no idea they would be so stretchy and soft against the skin though, I assumed they would be quite rigid and more stiff since they were a cargo pant but I was completely wrong! They are the most comfiest pants I have ever tried and they are extremely stretchy, I love that about them. The fit is also perfect, it’s so feminine and pretty, they are really slim down the legs and even though they only have flaps for the back pockets they are suprisingly flattering on the butt.
I love the way they have long ankle zips just like a skinny jean, it’s nice they still keep that element as it’s unusual on a cargo pant. The leg pocket placement is also perfect, I love the positioning of them, they are just in the right place to keep your legs looking slim. they also have moto style stitching on the knees as you can see and I think that makes them look really good. The colour as well is so pretty, it’s like a dusty khaki green and it matches almost everything. These pants come in 5 other colours as well as this Vintage Olive shade. I really want to buy them in grey and black! I can see myself living in these Houlihan pants for a while. I find they beat my motto of not being feminine because they are super skinny and they look really really good with heels.
So I’m really loving J Brand’s take on the cargo pants and I honestly can’t wait to try more! The cargo pants seem to be a huge trend right now and I really like it! These are just too beautiful to pass up and if you don’t think they will be very flattering or comfy then you are very mistaken, they are gorgeous!
I absolutely, 100%, recommend these J Brand Houlihan Cargo Pants! They are the most softest pants I have ever tried and they are so comfy because of how stretchy they are. They are also incredibly flattering and feminine if you pair them with heels or wedges and a pretty top. You definitely wont be disappointed buying these! Buy these cargo pants at Boutique to You.

Twice in one week! Emma Watson catches a flight out of NYC after attending the Met Ball 2010. She’s wearing J Brand’s “901″ denim leggings in Sable wash. They must be great to fly in, they look super comfortable!
This week has been all about my Paige Premium Verdugo Jeggings in June Lake. I tend to go through phases when it comes to denim, I wear one pair for a while, most likely because they are new and I love them, then I will change to something else. Right now I am absolutely loving my June Lake jeggings! It’s quite possible that they have taken the place of my Rowena’s… The Verdugo cut is beautiful, it’s just like the Skyline jean but so much softer and stretchier! It has a 360 degree stretch to it which makes them really easy to move in, they are like wearing thicker cotton leggings but they still keep you warm and flatter your shape like regular Paige jeans.
They have the perfect rise, it covers everything and it keeps you held in in all of the right places. They are super skinny which is the main thing I look for in skinny jeans and denim leggings, they have to be slim fitting all the way down otherwise they don’t look right. The wash is beautiful too! I was looking through Paige’s collection of leggings and she has so many to choose from! June Lake really caught my eye though. It’s a very pretty blue that has a depth to it and subtle fading on the thighs, it’s definitely a perfect wash for a jegging.
I’m beginning to wish that I sized down from my normal Paige size and took a 27 instead of a 28. They have stretched out quite a lot, as do most jeans you buy, but these ones have stretched a little bit more than other Paige jeans so they are getting a bit loose. They still fit great but the more I wear them the more they seem to loosen up. They are definitely not baggy but I do prefer them tighter so I would say, if you plan on buying a pair, you could take a size down and wait for them to stretch a bit. It all depends on how you like your jeans to fit.
I really love the simplicity of these Verdugo denim leggings. You can dress them up just as easy as you can dress them down. The wash matches everything I own pretty much and they are extremely comfortable. I find myself reaching for them when I run errands or just go out for a little while because I know I will have comfort the entire time I am out. They are also incredibly flattering. If you are a fan of Paige denim already then you will know how great her jeans fit! I want to get so many more! I have my eye on the Stratus wash as well as the Cascade wash. I was originally going to get Stratus instead of June Lake but I am glad I opted for June Lake!
I know I do say a lot that I love each of the denim leggings that I have reviewed but I can’t help it because I really honestly love them! I definitely recommend these Paige Premium Verdugo Jeggings in any wash as they are so comfortable and so flattering! They are in my top 2 for favourite denim leggings! June Lake is one of the prettiest washes because of how deep and dusty the blue is and how easy it is to dress them up or down. Buy these jeans at Paige Premium for $158.
