One of the reasons I hate pants is that (unless they are stretchy pants) they only fit within a 5 pound weight range. Skirts are much more forgiving. While I’m passing through this particular size, though, I guess I should take advantage of wearing this old pair of 100% cotton (i.e. no stretch), bootcut jeans.

Sweater, Full Tilt (thrifted). Jeans, M. Belt, thrifted. Collar, vintage. Bag, Rebecca Minkoff.

I actually bought these jeans when my weight was on a monthly upswing. I’d managed to squeeze into polyester trousers for an out-of-town conference, but couldn’t bear the thought of wearing them for the plane ride home. So, I bought these jeans at the resort.

My #ootd, 9 ½ years ago, when I bought these jeans. I think that’s a long time to keep denim.

I suppose weight fluctuations are just the trials of being an aging female. If it would only stop raining, maybe I could run some of these holiday pounds off. (But, then, of course, these jeans wouldn’t fit.)

    I agree its a long time to hold on to jeans, but I think these were totally worth it. They look good.
    I have items in several sizes, because of weight fluctuation. Sometimes when I want to keep myself from eating too much I will wear something tight as a “friendly” reminder.

      I did, finally, give up on some Old Navy and Lucky jeans that only fit at my lightest. (A weight even lower than my highschool weight!) I agree that wearing something fitted can be a helpful reminder at a buffet or potluck. It gives you a signal, maybe before your stomach, that you’ve had enough.
