Last week, Rachylou wrote something that made a lot of sense to me. When talking about which items to spend a lot of money on, she said that in her experience pants were not, as a small change in weight can result in fit difficulties very easily. This has coincided with my disillusionment with jeans, Angie's advice to search for the right pair and the need for some casual pants to wear this week when we have a photo taken to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.

These are the pants I ended up buying. They are certainly baggier and less flattering than anything I have previously considered, but I think I like them! The ones in #1 are a poplin and are cropped. I have folded them further so they sit above my calf. The second ones are a very soft cotton and feel wonderful on. My thought is that these will be good for times when I need casual pants but shorts are too bare.

What do you think? Did I do OK?
