There are a very few number of emails lists to which I’m subscribed and, because I’m human, even fewer that I always open. One of those, however, is Current/Elliott. Last week I opened up one of their emails and staring me in the face were polka dot chino pants. I bought these similar pants for $20 in southern France on our honeymoon three years ago and had yet to really find any pants like them here in the States. And, yet, I LOVE these pants and how fun they are to wear. You can imagine I was pretty ecstatic to see that one of my favorite brands is now selling a similar style. Now I have even more reason to share polka dot pants outfit ideas with you all – with the hope that more brands will bring the style back of course!
UPDATE: Now even those are sold out and I can’t find anything remotely similar. DIY time is is!
polka dot pants outfit Ideas
Traditional khakis never used to work for me. Part of it was that they used to be made for only straight up and down figures. Now there are more options, but I’m such a denim lover, the khaki/chino look was a difficult one for me to adopt.
Then I found this bargain deal (on the sale rack of a tiny store smashed back into the corner). I snatched them up and fell in love in a heartbeat.
Now they’re my go to pants for any sort of meeting (and teaching) on hot days. I always wear them rolled up like this, but I think I need to embrace the uncuffed polka dot pants outfit options as well!
The store is a beautiful and simple layout of local and artisan liquors and wines as well as cocktail bar necessities and great quality snacks to top it all off. Each time we’ve shot photos here, we wander in, ogle at everything because it’s so nicely displayed, and make plans to come back.
Sadly, we need to finish up a few things at home before we add anything new to our repertoire. Maybe that means a few cocktail recipes will be in our/your future!
