Plus Size Cropped Pants

Song that inspired the title:  Airplanes – B.o.B. ft. Hayley Williams

I like wearing cropped pants, though I’m not sure why.  There’s just something about wearing them that says summer is definitely here.

Some years ago, I remember a girlfriend telling me, “PJ, you shouldn’t wear cropped pants, they make you look short.”  I laughed.  I mean, hello, I’m 5’3.  I’m going to look short no matter what I wear.  Imagine if we used that as a rule-of-thumb for life.  I guess I’d be driving a Mini and I’d never have married The Dane.  He’s 6’3 and he definitely makes me look short.  Or maybe, I make him look really tall.

I say throw the rules out the window, except for this one.  Wear what makes you feel happy and confident.

  1. When I was about 16, I wore my pants short like you do. Not on purpose, but I’d grow an inch a month. I remember a buddy’s mom asking my mom if she was feeding me yeast? They called the pant’s “high waters”. 😀
