Role Reversal Part 1: Denim Top, Silk Pants

We've done the denim tops paired with denim bottoms, different colored jeans, leather, and other usual suspects. But what if it was silk bottoms and a denim top instead of the traditional silk top and denim jeans? This two part series is all about mixing up the denim top with different material bottoms that we wouldn't necessarily think about. The results...a mismatch made in heaven. Silk pants always make me feel like I'm wearing PJs,...so I couldn't think of a better time to try this out then on a rainy Saturday in Ikea while children run around while I try to find my zen in my silky pants.

I love that this look is a role reversal and that it works. It's casual and comfortable but could also be dressed up for work by switching out the flats for heels.

What do you think of this role reversal? 

O and yes I made my fiance take pictures in Ikea. There was only so many breaks between rain showers so we had to snap pictures when we could.
