Polka Dot Pants

Shirt: Anthropologie | Pants c/o Lisette L (style #801) | Necklace: Oh, Hello Friend | Bracelet: T+J Designs| Belt: Forever 21 | Shoes: Zara

With any trend, sometimes I’ll just jump right in and make the purchase (like mint things or all sorts of colored denim, although ironically it’s taking me forever to find the perfect pair of mint jeans, but that’s a post for another day) but sometimes it does take me a lot of researching, searching and contemplating before deciding to jump on a trend.  The latter was the case with “polka dot pants”.  When Lisette L first contacted me a few months ago to try out their Flaterie Fit pants, I was skeptical at first on how these pants would look on me.  These pants are ones that you pull on, have no zippers or buttons, and looked to be body hugging so I was worried how they’d fit around my curves, or rather show off too much of my curves.  But being a new mom and all, I was willing to give them a try since they claimed to slim the abs and contour the hips and that’s kind of exactly what I need, and that my friend, is exactly what they did!  These pants really do fit like a dream, they are super comfortable without being too tight or restricting, they are a mix of rayon, nylon and spandex stretch that feel so soft against your skin (much more comfortable than jeans, in my opinion).  And the best part is that I can wear them too work since they look like a “work pant” or “trouser”!  Each style has a bunch of different color options and I was so excited when the style I wanted to try, the 7/8 Ankle Cut, had a B/W polka dot option!  Black with white dots was a classic and safer option for me, to get my feet wet with this trend.  And now, I want to try out The Skirt next, since sometimes I still need to suck in when wearing my other skirts, and that’s obviously not a sustainable way of going about my day!  😉  To find a store near you or to register to win a pair of pants, visit here.

By the way, my lace tee fits like a dream as well.  I’ve gotten many compliments on it and it’s totally on sale for $29.95 right now (that’s totally a steal from Anthropologie).  You need to get one.

    I would have never guessed these weren’t “real” pants unless you told me so. I’m ready to go to the website now!

    Serious cuteness! I LOVE this outfit!

    I have one pair of skinny jeans that I love – they’re super stretchy & I usually pair them with a longer top. It’s my “artsy” look. 😉

    My go-to pants are my Target “jeggings”! I never thought I would own jeggings but they look and feel just like jeans but are stretchy and wonderful! You look great in the polka dot pants Sandy!

    A) I love Polka dots, with a passion.
    B) I love slimming pants.

    Obviously I need these pants.
    Thanks for sharing!!

    Cute and comfy and polka dotted? Perfection. 🙂
    Like the tee as well!

    The polka dot pants look great on you! They seem to hug you in all the right places and the smaller polka dot print is a nice alternative to the large dots. I can’t believe you got that lace top from Anthro for only $30. That really is a steal!

    Having read this I believed it was very enlightening.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this information together.

    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout
    on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s
    rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.

    Each show is different and it really depends on whos booking it and for the bigger shows
    with celebrities and bands they need a lot of lead-time. Unfortunately Nora Ephron recently passed away, but she left us
    with some of our most endearing romantic comedies of
    all time — from “When Harry Met Sally” to “Sleepless in Seattle” and “You’ve got Mail. If it feels weird coming out of your mouth, fake it.
