Let me tell you a little story about these pants. I’m pretty sure you’ve never seen them on the blog before. The matching suit jacket? Yes. The pants? No. Why not?

Well, this is one of the suits I bought almost six years ago before I started my current job. And six years ago flared leg pants were still in style. I’m not talking bootcut, I’m talking FLARED. So, these were flared. And then they hung in my closet for the past few years with me debating whether or not to get rid of them.

But I HATE shopping for pants. Hate it. So I decided I’d try these on one last time before deciding if they were going in the donation pile. And they still fit. Which is when I decided I’d ask the tailoring lady at my dry cleaner if she could make them into straight legged pants. Which she said she could for the price of $26.

Now they’re a tad too long but that’s an easy fix. Well, I mean, I’ll still be paying someone to do it since I can’t sew, but at least I don’t have to go pants shopping!
