. . . for Lauren and Lauren: 4th Times a Charm

February 3, 2013

4th Times a Charm

You're probably busy watching the Super Bowl, but I personally find a story about polka dot pants much more interesting.

shirt & pants: old navy   boots: dsw    necklace: gift  

This is actually the fourth pair of polka dots pants I've purchased, but the first pair I've actually kept.
Long story short:

I got a cute pair at American Eagle, found ones I liked better at Old Navy, returned the ones from American Eagle.  

Tried on the Old Navy ones at home, couldn't believe I bought pants that were that tight and uncomfortable and returned them. 

Saw the same pants again at American Eagle for cheaper than before ($12) so I bought them.  Didn't wear them for a month because I was scared to wear polka dot pants for fear of looking like a clown or a four year old, got pregnant, they were already tight before so I returned them.

Saw these at Old Navy for only $8 this weekend.  So I finally bought them and wore them.

Fourth times a charm, right? 

I apologize as I ended up sharing the full version.  And when I think about it, it is probably one of the worst and most boring stories I've told.  Please revert to a better one like here or here.

Those are the PERFECT polka dot pants! I love them - and red w/ white polka dots is my favorite! I had a pair of rain boots that were red w/ white polka dots and I LOVED them...I had them for like 5 years before they got cracked and didn't keep the water out anymore and I had to throw them out :( Way to keep looking till your found the just right pair :)

Love these polka dot pants! I tried them on at ON and thought they fit tight. It was weird, I loved all their colored denim, but they just didn't fit right. Strange too, because I already had a pair of rockstar denim from there in my normal size. For some reason, I thought their colored/patterned denim seemed to run really small.

shannonwhitney said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I bought them in blue a few weeks ago and I wear them all the time!

Love the red:)

Niki Caron said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Wow I guess 4th time IS a charm! That's such a great deal! And those pants are adorable!

Megan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

CUTE! Love those pants, they are darling. 4th time is definitely a charm :)

Tara said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

4th time is a charm then because you're adorable in them and they perfectly suit you!

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I think this is the best story! And I happy to hear that I'm not the only one constantly returning things because I hate trying things on in stores!
AND I love your pants!

Sounds like it was meant to be in my opinion! After all that time the price kept getting better and better and they still had them in the store so I think it's fate. You look adorable!

Will you share how you finally did get pregnant on your blog sometime? You say fertility treatment, but it would help others struggling to hear what worked for you - IUI, IVF, injections, any baby aspirin, etc? Thanks!

Oh my goodness, too funny! I am wearing the exact same pants today, because I saw them on sale for $8 at Old Navy yesterday :) I think you look adorable by the way (and not at all like a clown or a four year old). xoxo

We are sooooo a like. I do this all the time. Love the new ones!! And lok at your deals!!

Nicole @ Haute Runner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha that's awesome! I love those pants but I would probably feel the same way. Plus red really isn't my colour.

$8 for those pants? I wish I could find those deals.

Tessa said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I just got these pants! I love old navy and ridiculously good clearance prices. I also got a thirteen dollar coat!
