I'm Wearing: Shirt-JcPenney ($4), Indigo Blue Vest-Maurices ($10), Jeans-JcPenney ($17)
So funny story about this vest-actually a pretty cool story! I saw this lady in the mall wearing this super cute blue vest (the one I'm wearing!) I pointed it out to my mom and wondered where she bought it. Then we headed into Maurice's, and surprise! There was the vest! Unfortunately it also had a lovely $45 price tag on it-way out of my price range! Well a couple weeks later it went on sale for $25...I was very tempted to buy it! I had some Christmas money and debated buying it, finally deciding I didn't need it that bad. But then a couple weeks after that-bingo! it went on sale for $10 bucks! I was so excited I almost screamed in the store! Instead, I calmly went to the register to check out-actually the cashier made a comment to the effect of "Oh, the big spender!" LOL!
I thought it would be good to start a discussion on finding modest pants! One of my problems with pants is that they're worn so tight they become inappropriate. After I graduate in June, I'm planning on working at our family business, where I need to wear pants. So my mom and I went shopping for pants!
I was so happy to find these dark wash jeans at JcPenney's! I took a couple pairs into the dressing room with me-9, 10 and 11s. I share sizes because I think it's important to realize that you're going to have to go up in size to make them fit better. The 9s fit the way they're supposed to, hip/rear hugging and not too modest! So I tried on the 10s, a bit better, but finally decided on the 11s. They're too big in the waist, but fit nicely in the legs and length-nothing a belt can't fix!
A general rule to follow when finding modest pants is that you should be able to pinch an 1" in the thighs to be loose enough.
And if all else fails and your pants are just too tight in the rear, just wear a long tank top or shirt that covers the problem area!
What are your tips for finding modest pants?
