how to wear polka dot jeans

February 20th | what i wore wednesday, what I'm wearing

I’m linking up with Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration!

Hey friends! I picked up a pair of polka dot jeans at Target last week. They are super easy to wear and since the dot is so small, it makes the pattern easy to mix with other pieces. The Target jeans {like I’m wearing} are on sale for $20! I also love these polka dot jeans from Gap.

These posts are so fun because they make me think outside of the box! Each of these outfits is super comfy and these jeans work great for dressing up or dressing down.

I’d probably wear this first outfit on a date night. When I put it on, I felt pretty–I think it’s the flowy black top. The necklace and the bright blue heels really bring the outfit together.

Outfit 1 details: Black sheer top, Target. Bright blue heels, TJ Maxx. Stir my Soul necklace, my shop {on sale today only!}

This green coat is tons of fun–and I’m pretty sure when combined with polka dot jeans it’s guaranteed to keep me in a good mood. I played up the polka dots even more with a larger dot print scarf. Such a happy outfit!

Outfit 2 details: Green coat, Tulle. Navy tee, Forever 21. Nude heels, Payless. Polka dot scarf, Zara. Connected bracelet, my shop {love}.

This last outfit is the most casual. I loved mixing the polka dots with a plaid. Easy and it works. The wedge heel is comfortable enough for all day.

Outfit 3 details: Plaid camp shirt, Ruby Rose. Turquoise wedges, Target. Love is My Anchor necklace, My shop.

And don’t miss our one day sale on the Stir My Soul Necklace! It’s usually $62 for today it’s only $38. Snag one while you can!

Tell me, which outfit is your favorite?

  9. I saw those jeans at Target.
    Then I debated.
    And I hemmed and hawed and I walked away.
    Now I am kicking myself.

    I love outfit number two and totally love the scarf with the coat!

    And this reminds me that I bought the GAP polka dot jeans and tucked them into my summer clothes’ trunk because of the length and the chill up here in WA — almost time to pull them out!

    I love outfit number 2!!! Perfect combo with the little dots and the blue and green colors. The scarf pulls the whole outfit together. Also thanks for the great deal on the Stir My Soul necklace… I added it to my collection today in the garnet color! Can’t wait to get it in.

      We stayed at Secrets–but right next door is the resort called Sabor that was kid friendly and really nice!! We rented jeeps through the concierge and drove around the island–so fun! We also did a snorkeling tour that we booked through the hotel and it was awesome!

    You are infinitely braver than me with your style, and it always looks great! Maybe I need to get brave. I especially like it with the green jacket and scarf, perfect for icy Ohio :)

  14. […] Who wants printed jeans? They’ll be out of style in five point four seconds. Then I saw Lisa Leonard wearing them… and they looked really cute on her. By the time I read her post, the polka dot jeans at […]
