Fake Work Pants
So. I have a job, an outside the house job. I work at a circulation desk in a college library, and while this does lend itself somewhat to wearing jeans to work, I am not the most happy person while wearing jeans. So I've worn skirts/dresses with leggings, and my few pairs of nice pants. The thing is, I have a fairly deep hatred of "dressy" pants. They do not fit me properly. No, not even petites. I am willing to acknowledge that there might be the perfect pant out there, but I have yet to find it. The rise is always too long, resulting either in pants belted right under my chest or a crotch several inches below my own. So, on to the fake work pants. I like pants that are as comfy as pajamas (obviously this means either an elastic waistband or a drawstring). Ponte knit boot cut pants by Denim 24/7 are my new fake work pants of choice. Oddly, the gray pants are not as soft as the black pants, even after washing. These pants do require a tunic top to cover the elastic waist.
