Project Bright Pants Mission Statement: Detract from the blinding whiteness of my Long Tall Sally linen jacket by pairing it with some bright cropped pants.
PBP Take 2 - Gap's Slim Cropped Refined Pant in President Green - Size 10 Tall.
Once I realized that the regular sized cropped pants from Loft were a major no go, I started hunting for some tall crops. I foolishly ignored the word "slim" in the description of the Gap pants and hit the "complete purchase" button.
The first time I tried on skinny jeans years ago, I managed to get them a whopping inch past my cankles before giving up for fear that I might seriously injure myself whilst hobbling around the dressing room trying to get the jeans on. Now I know...if pants are described as "skinny", there ain't no way they're gonna fit over my cankles let alone my thighs. (Can·kles n. - a condition in which your ankles are roughly the same thickness as your calves). I thought that perhaps skinny's cousin "slim fit" might be OK buttttttt not so much. Observe the whisker-like wrinkles in the front just under the waistband and wrinkles wrinkles wrinkles all the way up and down, front and back. BLURGH! I'm sure these pants look good on someone - just not me.
Since most cropped pants seem to be slim fit, I'm not quite sure how I'm going to find a pair that I can stuff my bubble bum, thighs and cankles into. But Project Bright Pants must continue!! I just spied these bright blue pants on Gap's website, but there's that pesky word "slim" again! They do look a smidge more forgiving than the green ones, so maybe I'll give them a go.
P.S. I would just like to state for the record that I love my body to bits and only say things like cankles, thunder thighs and bubble bum for the humor of it all rather than as a complaint.
