Girls Day Out! Dad tagged along to be our photographer, on a sunny July Saturday in Manhattan with one particular mission: the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at The Met. Mom and I rocked our Not Your Daughter’s Jeans Straight Leg Trouser Chinos in White, courtesy of the brand, and perfect for the summer as both a weekend casual and work appropriate garment. As you can tell we may look alike, and even while wearing the same pants, our styles are very different.
Either way, the NYDJ’s patent Tummy Tuck technology made us feel comfy and look a full size smaller. With great stretch, a higher waist, and back pocket slits, these chinos were complimentary to our petite frames, with this particular style available in misses, women, or petites (speaking of, I had to do a quick hem job on both of our chino, chopping 3 inches off of mine, and 5 off of Mom’s!).
So to The Met we went; Mom absolutely LOVED the exhibit, while my Dad somehow worked his way through it in less than 10 minutes, declaring “Now that one (exhibit), I didn’t get at all!” Afterward, we made our way to The Met’s rooftop garden, taking in one of the best views in the city, then went out for a Starbucks run and a Greek dinner in Astoria.
We love these chinos as much as our NYDJ jeans – here’s what we styled our chinos with this time around:
Converse long sleeve roll-tab top
Longchamp Le Pliage Medium Tote
Marc Jacobs Top, layered American Apparel tank below
Marc Jacobs tote
Forever 21 Sandals
