The Japanese khaki chinos have the best shade of khaki I've seen and I wear the hell out of mine. These and the gunmetal chinos should be staple items to have in stock year-round.
Thanks for the input guys. The super casual suit with sneakers look was actually inspired by the j.crew catalog, not styleblogger (god forbid).

My secretary went up a shoe size with her last pregnancy, and suddenly found herself unable to wear a good chunk of her fabulous size 6 shoe wardrobe.
