Remember in this post when I talked about the shopping spree bonanza my mother in law took me on during Matt and I’s weekend trip to Arizona? Yes, it was delightful, and yes, I know I promised to show off my goodies (haha, no, not those goodies)…my shopping goodies, you sickos :) I had all these fabulous outfit of the day posts planned for this week, but with packing, moving, huffing and puffing, there is nothing OOTD worthy around here (unless you consider ratty shirts and high school Soffe shorts OOTD worthy.)
So until we settle in Chicago and I start dressing like a human being again, I thought I would tell you a little tale about one of my recent purchases…
On our third day-o-shopping we hit up Target (for the second time on our trip.) We browsed cardigans, dresses, and swimsuits galore, and being the thrifty gal that I am, I headed straight for the clearance rack. I was delighted and surprised to see a great pair of yoga pants hanging in the medium section. Now, I know what you’re thinking…”Big whoop, Allison. A yoga pant gets you excited? Perhaps you should get out more.” I know, I know, it sounds a little weird to get all giddy about a yoga pant, but ya’ll, I’m 5’10” and it is RARE to find any pants that come within ten inches of the floor on me. So when I spotted these babies, gave them the once over, I was hopeful they’d fit. Then, when I tried them (and 856 other things) on for my mother in law, I squealed over how long they were and how well they fit! And I quote…
“Oh my gah, these are perfect! I know they’re not anything crazy or unique, but I am always looking for lounge pants, but can’t ever find any that fit. These are perfect. They’re surprisingly long enough, not too tight in the legs, and they have room in all the right places for me!”
So imagine my shock when I was unpacking to read the following in the label of my “perfect-have-room-in-all-the-right-places pants…”
“Liz Lange for Target MATERNITY.”
The pants I adore so much, the pants that fit so perfectly, are actually made for someone growing a KID inside of them. Hahahaha. Awesome.
Sometimes, you just gotta laugh :)
