It’s pretty much exactly two years since I’ve been on a beach in Hawaii, and I constantly think about the moment when I will get to return again. I also have been trying to embrace the mentality of “being on a beach in Hawaii” as I go about my weekday and weekend chores, attempting to remain as zen and mindful as possible as I check them off the list, one by one.
These pants though, make my dreams of Hawaii quite evident, thanks to the over sized frangipani flower print and casual silhouette. While on the island of Kauai, I purchased them so that I met the requirements of our ATV tour, which got quite muddy and dusty. Since then, I’ve elevated their existence to office attire and special occasions, like a trip to a match at the US Open, and last weekend, to my favorite beach in Long Island. It’s all a matter of balancing the baggy shape and dressing it up (or down) with accessories. I like wearing them with a knitted tank or tee, keeping it pulled together and sophisticated with a slash of bright lip color, a manicure, and some well-balanced jewelry.
You can’t help but smile when you see, and wear these pants, and as sentimental as they may be to me, the continually do their job of getting me into that “beach in Hawaii” mindset. I hope you have a piece in your wardrobe that does that for you too, automatically taking your mind on a rapid journey to your happy place.
