Visible Monday: Fat Pants Thin Pants
Do you have clothes that used to fit? Hanging there, mocking you? I do/did. I have three pairs of pants; two Banana Republic and one ABS (and unsurprisingly all three striped) that I have packed, unpacked, re-washed and re-hung for years. The ABS pair I have had since the mid-90s and over the holidays* we got reacquainted.
As a huge proponent of getting rid of that which I do not use, it makes no sense I would keep these pants for so long, but . . . that length! that shape! that material! None of the three are remarkable in style and maybe pragmatism drove me to keep/hoard them; they are neutral trousers that I can wear every day if only they fit.
So here I am, better late than never, wearing those old pants and feeling happy that I held on to them. Unremarkable, neutral things happen to those who wait!
Happy Monday! Linking up with Patti at NotDeadYetSyle for Visible Monday. Thank you Patti!
*Speaking of keeping things, this post is slightly aged because Visible Monday has been on hiatus and I gained four pounds and have only been wearing jammies due to the Longest Winter Break Ever. But the pants still fit. It’s a Solstice Spectacular miracle!
