These photos were taken a few weeks ago when we were having quite a cold snap. I had just updated my closet for the warm spring season and found myself staring at a closet full of summer clothes. The weather outside wasn’t having any of it. Still experimenting with the “dress warmly in spring clothing” concept I put together black cropped trousers, a bright purple blouse and my divinely warm faux fur jacket.
I purchased these cropped trousers over two years ago. At the time they fit perfectly, but I lost weight last year and now they hang on me. Undeterred I decided to wear them out anyway. I love the look of oversized pants on other women and thought I’d have a go at it.
Have you ever lost weight and found that half your wardrobe no longer fits? I’ve had a few things taken in but I’ve passed most of my too-big clothes on to the Goodwill. I’m excited to be fitting into smaller clothes but it’s scary too. I have no intention of letting the pounds creep back on, of course, but I still look at size 10 pants and wonder how they’ll ever get past my hips. When they do I’m rather amazed.
These pants are a size 14. They were favorites and I hate to let them go, but I think I’ll pass them on to another woman. Maybe they’ll be her favorite too.
I hope the weather is lovely where you. I don’t know about you but I’m ready for some warmth and sunshine.
