Y’all, I can’t believe I’m about to write an entire post about my obsession with a particular pair of pants but believe it, because here it is.
About two years ago, I visited an H&M for the first time while on trip to Tampa. I picked up a striped shirt with a GIANT screen printed pink leopard print bow and a pair of $10 black jeggings. The shirt met it’s demise thanks to a series of pin holes but the pants have become a closet staple. So much so, that I’ve purchased two additional pairs since then and retired a pair that was stretched out and faded. Same pants, same price of $10.
For a while, I couldn’t find the pants when I looked for them and I thought my favorite pants were gone forever. I even looked for them while visiting Utah with no luck. *Insert sadface here.*
On a trip to the mall this past weekend, I found the pants again. And in my size! I scooped up two pairs and now I’m regretting that I didn’t pick up a couple more. (Note to self: make another trip to the mall soon and snag a few more pairs.)
The cashier laughed at my obsession with the pants and probably thought I was weird for buying two pairs. But when you love something, you buy it in multiples (and/or every color). The way I look at it, some people have multiple pairs of jeans in the same style. Why can’t I have a closet full of black jeggings?
I wear these pants with practically everything. As someone who wears (and loves) a lot of black, they’re perfect for almost any outfit. They can be dressed up or down. And they’re the perfect fit – tight and stretchy – like wearing leggings with pockets and belt loops. I wear them on the motorcycle, I wear them to work, I’ve fished in them, heck I’ve probably even slept in them at some point. Maybe.
To refrain from sounding like a Dr. Seuss book (I would wear them in a box with a fox wearing socks), I owe a lot of my outfits to these cheap and comfortable pants. I really like them, Sam-I-Am.
I just discovered that the jeans are available online – Skinny Low Jeans $9.95. (Thank you magical Google!) And I also just discovered that they’re available in multiple colors. *Frantically orders multiple pairs.* I will note that they’re incredibly stiff until you wear and wash them a few times, but after that they fit like a glove.
