My New Favorite Pants
Last week I finally bit the bullet and went shopping for some pants that fit. I don’t like clothes shopping for myself and have a tendency to grab the first thing I see that’s reasonable and on sale.
This time I was smart and went with my MIL so she could baby hold. I went to Old Navy first and, surprisingly, last, as I found 4 pairs I liked while there.
- MUST have pockets
- be comfortable
- hopefully not fall down after wearing for an hour (arrgh! stretch denim!)
- not cost an arm and a leg
Wide-Leg Walking Pants
These pants are just about perfect for me! They are lightweight and stretchy. The waistband has a small piece of elastic sewn in place at the top; it doesn’t roll or gouge but does stay in place. I bought two pair, in part because they were on sale for $12. I just wish they’d had black in the store. Grey’s fine though. It’s really hard to find yoga-style pants with pockets, so I swooned when I found these.
Rib-Knit Waist Cargo Pants
These are comfy mostly because of the rib-knit waist. It has a drawstring, so it will stay up. These are also lightweight. I’m reserving judgment concerning their ability to roll up into capri as I don’t like how I look in capri pants. I’m also not a big fan of the cargo pockets, but they are nice and comfy!
The Dreamer Boot-cut Jeans
These are nice. The waist is cut right for me! The button doesn’t dig into me and the back doesn’t gape. I tried wearing them for a while before I cut the tags off in case the stretch denim sagged too much. But I got spit-up on them, so they’re mine. They’re a little long, so I think I’m going to chop off the hem. If I wore any heel at all they’d be perfect, but since I like to be barefoot . . .
