The minute we walked out of the airport in Florida, I immediately fell in love with the palm trees. And of course I packed my palm tree pants for my Florida trip! I had a lot of cute outfits on this trip, but this one was definitely my favorite.
This is not my first experience seeing a palm tree, living on the shore I have seen beach clubs and restaurants plant them in the sand for the season. However, they just looked like decoration so I hardly noticed them. The palm trees in Florida are everywhere and I fell in love with the foliage. On our last day at Siesta Key Beach, we decided to explore other beaches in the area and grab dinner in Venice, Florida.
As you can tell I got a little bit too much sun on the beach the last few days we were in Florida and I was so sunburned. It was a beautiful warm day, but I knew we were going to eat dinner on a pier and with my sunburn I would freeze! It was the perfect occasion to wear my palm tree pants! I had my eyes on these pants from Banana Republic last summer but just could not find an excuse to spend that much money on palm tree pants I would only ever wear a few times. Last fall, I was shopping at Goodwill (where I find all of my best pieces in my closet fyi) and found the palm tree pants I wanted earlier that summer for a lovely price of $4.99!
Since then they have been sitting in a box in the back of my closet waiting for the warm weather to be worn. What I like about these pants is since they are Banana Republic they are amazing quality, but that they can also be office appropriate.
I wasn’t sure how I could style the pants and make them look more casual than work clothes which is probably why I found them at Goodwill. I mean, how many times can you wear pants with palm trees on them?? Right now I am trying to be a little more adventurous in my wardrobe and trying to wear patterns so this was a great investment piece for my closet. I wore a J. Crew lace tank with them and my Tory Burch Miller Sandals to dress it down for the restaurant.
Venice Beach was just lovely! We had four days to explore in the area, but just did not have time to do everything. One of my favorite parts about Florida is that the beaches are free so we kept hopping form beach to beach to see different ones.
