“Is that what you are wearing to church?”
“Well those are your gym pants.” He looks at me questioning if he should add more to this statement or possibly that he shouldn’t have said anything at all.
“They are not. They have pockets and buttons and zippers. And they are from Banana Republic.” While I answered no, they were not gym pants, I felt that I had to qualify my pants selection in my response.
I have worn this pair of pants exactly twice. The first time, my male colleague actually giggled at my outfit and this time my husband thought that I was wearing gym pants. Now, there was a point in my life where after these reactions, I would never had worn the pants again, but now I smile because they are too fun not to wear and I bought them for that reason.
These are skinny-legged black dress pants with small white polka dots all over them. My colleague giggled because he thought that the outfit wasn’t my normal put-together self. And he wanted to know if he could mix patterns as I had with my striped shirt and polka dot pants. My husband actually thought that they were my gym pants, I think because of the fitted factor. Oh well, they are different, but definitely fun!
