More Loungewear As Daywear: Beach Pants




Let’s call these what they are:  glorified pajama pants.



But the folks over at Hurley call these “Beach Pants” which makes them sound more like real pants.  And for those of you who have asked about options for covering pregnancy-induced (or not) varicose veins…..YES, THESE.




(note:  links below have been updated for Summer 2015)


pants: Hurley Bondi Beach Pants (sold out)….this year’s version is Hurley’s Venice Beach Pant

shoes: Soludos Sand Shoe Lace-up (sold out – the 2015 version is similar, just with a cool espadrille bottom and interesting color-blocking)

Earlier this summer I actually threw these pants on with a pair of heels to entertain at home.  I think it worked OK.

ps.  The sales are cah-razy right now.  Just updated the sale shop with some seriously great finds from Piperlime.


  1. I love this look but I’m always stumped as far as sizing goes! What size are you wearing? It’s just a thought but maybe you could do a post about your measurements and include size info in the outfit details just for reference? I don’t know if I’m the only one but I’m always interested in knowing sizing for “real” life rather than for the fit model on the website.

    • That’s a really good point. I’ve often found myself drooling over how a sweater fits another blogger but am stumped as to sizing. So…yeah. In this case, I’m wearing XS in the pants and a size 6 in the cami. I’m typically a size 25 jean and a size small top.

  2. I love both of these outfits so much and I am totally on board with glorified pajama pants! You always make everything look so good. I’m constantly looking up your blog while I’m shopping to try to get inspired. I even tried on a quilted-pattern (that’s a thing right?) leather skirt and I loved it! I would normally NEVER try on a skirt like that, but you inspire me to try new things. I love you and your blog!

    OH! I got my husband to buy a v neck tee!! Shana Christine, kicking ass and changing wardrobes 🙂

  3. Love the outfits…as usual…but…the bauble bar hinge bracelet,…it looks like you are mixing metals again right? Gold bangles and silver hinge bracelet…love this idea…unfortunately the hinge bracelets are all gone!

  4. I just ordered the beach pants. If you have thoughts on styling them for fall, I’d love to hear! I’m worried that they will only look chic if you show a lot of skin on top, but I’m hoping there’s a way around that. Love, love, love the non-denim pant ideas!

  5. Love these pants! I ordered them in an xtra small. They fit but I would prefer they have a little baggier look like yours in the pics. Did you find that these stretch out as you wear them? If so I probably need to stick with the xtra small. If not, I think I need to exchange for the small.
