Just because the shoe fits…doesn’t mean you should wear it.
Or in my case pants.
So I’ve been storing about 6 pairs of pants for about 10 years in hopes that someday I’d be able to fit back into them. Well that day has come. Today I tried them on and low and behold they fit. But after 10 years they look more like “mom jeans” than the cute little college pants I remembered. What a let down. Although I think high waisted pants may be back in style but I’m not sure. Anyway, I had put a lot of effort into holding onto these pants. I lugged them around over 5 different moves dreaming of the day I could slip back into them. Today I finally thought I was going to reap the rewards of my hard work only to be disappointed to realize that: 1. I’m older than I feel. 2. I had bad taste in previous years. 3. I need to make another trip to the Goodwill. Back in the day, I thought I looked good in those short Gap shorts with the 9″ zipper. Now I’m wondering, in horror, if I tucked my shirt in? Disappointed, I asked my husband what I should do with my pants. His suggestion – hold onto them for another 10 years.
