Pants 36...Me 2

Pants, you might have won a battle, but you have not won the war!

Worn to work Friday, October 7

So, I tried on 36 pairs of pants last weekend...no exaggeration...27 pairs.  Guess how many actually came home with me...2...just two damn pairs.  I have muscular thighs, smaller hips than the rest of my legs, and and an incision that hates being bound by tight fabric, not to mention being a short 5'4"...not an easy fit!  But, these tan trousers and back jeans now reside in my closet...Thank You Loft!! You always come through!!

I guess I am pretty ok with the way the pants look...but, I am not quite ready to resign my post as the president of the pants are evil club!

Have a great weekend.  Happy Birthday to my baby Alex who turns 3 tomorrow! Not, I am not ready to start trying for another child...(people are starting to ask that since Alex is not a baby any more and the boys are 2/1/2 years apart)!! No more kids!

Wow, I don't know if I've seen you in jeans in any of your posts before! They look cute, but I agree, pants are still evil.

And nice to know that people never stop asking about having babies, even after you've already had a couple. Yikes. Happy Birthday to Alex!

I have a horrible time with pants. I buy them to fit my biggest part then have them taken in at the dry cleaners (I have a great one that is an expert tailor). Makes all the difference. I think I have 1 or 2 pairs that I have bought off the rack.

I love both pairs you found, and I think they're different enough that they'll serve lots of different purposes. Gotta love Loft! Hope you had a great weekend!

I have maybe one pair of black pants that I can wear to work. That's it. But even the thought of trying on any new pairs of pants is exhausting to me. Congrats on undertaking that task :)

I love the pants you ended up with!

Loft has come through for me more than once in the pants area, too. So glad you found some that worked! :)

Happy Birthday to your little man Alex!

I want to be part of the 'Pants are Evil' club, too! Most of the pants I own are several years old, and only fit right because I've taken them to the tailor. Ugggh, such a pain!!!

Pants can be tough! I love the tan pair in the first photo. They really do fit you nicely :) Love your shoes in the 2nd photo. They look so cool and comfy. Hope the birthday party went well!

Oooh I really like those black ones!
Pants/jeans shopping is really hard. You're brave for trying so many!

Searching for pants is never easy and rarely fun.
But that you were willing to try on 36 pairs is a very strong level of commitment. You should be very proud. and they look great.

pants are tough. they're definitely one of those things that you have to get just right but when you do you have to snatch them up :) these look great on you. the camel colored ones are nice and versatile and look great with the red jacket!!!

Happy Birthday to your little Alex!
