gauchos


Okay, these look cute on this young girl's skinny, no-hips body but, honestly, can you think of a less flattering style? Yeah...me neither but I bought some anyway. I'll spare you my fat picture as I can't find the wide-angle lens right now but it's not pretty. However, despite the physical effort of sucking in my stomach and the mental strain of avoiding my saddle-bag reflections in mirrors and windows, I am loving them today. I feel like I'm in my gym clothes. Add another sign of old age to my fast growing list...vanity has given way to comfort.

I bought a pair too - and in black! And yes, they are comfy! Now do I dare wear them in public?

You are much too hard on yourself, Rita. You looked beautiful at the reunion, just like in high school.

Rita - you look great in those black guachos -- man I knew you had been running a lot, but check out those slender hips and legs. Dang, I got to keep up my running!!! QQQ

As an aside -- I think we established we're getting to an age where who cares what others' think -- if you like it and it feels comfortable -- wear it! (P.S. - I might have to retract that statement when you see me in my leggings this winter -- Trentin was embarrassed to go out the house with me!! I figured it Lindsay Lohan can do it, why not a 38-yr-old mom!)

I bought a pair of denim ones last year at The Gap and then chickened out and have never worn them!
