Charlotte has recently decided she will not wear jeans anymore. She calls them "hard pants" and finds them uncomfortable to play in. This wouldn't be such a big deal if it was May or June when she made this declaration. She instead decided this in December, during a cold snap. She essentially eliminated half of her wardrobe from circulation. I went shopping.
I started at Zeller's. I found some woven cotton elastic waist pants. I thought they looked a little low in the rise, but decided to give them a try (they were buy one pair, get one pair free) Charlotte tried them on and they mostly fit. She wore a pair to playgroup the next day and they would not stay up over her little derriere. They are pretty much unwearable. I lost the receipt. Anyone need some brand new pants, size 4, with tags?
I made my way to the Walsmart. The friend I went with was infinitely patient as I combed the racks for non-jean pants that I thought were appropriate. What is appropriate? Well.......
- Regular rise
- No licenced characters (eg, Hillary Duff, Hannah Montana, High School Musical........) They are not paying me to advertise, and most of the stuff is pretty ugly anyway.
- Adjustable waist, or soft elastic waist
- No cuffs on the sweats (looks sloppy)
- No writing on the bum
I am thankful tunics and leggings seem to be the style for Spring. Charlotte and I will both be happy then.
