I put this under the category "Beauty Tips", although I'm not sure why. It really isn't about beauty - it is about comfort. With a capital C. I'm all about that.
My normal working wardrobe in the summer is shorts and a t-shirt; in the winter, stretchy pants, a shirt and a sweatshirt. This outfit allows me to be comfy while I work, and not have to worry too much about getting fragrances and dyes on the clothes, 'cause they're just not fancy.
The only problem comes when I have to deliver some soap, call on a customer, a customer comes over to pick something up, or go to my kids' school for some reason. Then I'm embarrassed - just not ready for prime time. A lot of times I get to working and realize at noon I haven't taken a shower yet. Eek!
Anyway, I went shopping for clothes for my birthday to help out my husband - otherwise, I wouldn't have been there! I went in to J. Jill, a pretty nice, classy women's store. I found a pair of jeans and a sweater, along with a really great salesperson. I hardly ever wear jeans because I find them constricting and uncomfortable. But these jeans - swoon. First of all, they are super light weight, more like pants really. They are dark wash, but they have this lineny look. Here is a picture: now, suffice it to say that they look nothing like that on me - I am not that skinny, and am much more of a pear shaped person. Also, if I had seen that picture online, I think I would have said "bleh", 'cause they look a little tight or something
But I am not exaggerating when I tell you that these are the most COMFORTABLE decent-looking pants I have ever had. And they are nice and roomy and DON'T HUG THE THIGHS!
I have turned into the cliche, the preschooler with a blankie, who won't give it up - I'm wearing these all the time. And, I just found them on sale for $24.99 so I bought another pair. These are my new uniform! Happy days!
