I’m obsessed with my new Lou & Grey drawstring pants. I bought them in black and in off-white (see them here). They are a very welcome addition to my growing soft pants collection. You may scoff at these glorified pajama pants, as I once did about 2 years ago, but my first pair got me hooked instantly (remember these from last year?). I packed a bunch of soft pants for my recent trip to Italy. They don’t really wear shorts over there unless you’re at the beach or pool. Also, a lot of the major churches don’t allow admittance to those wearing short shorts or skirts (or they can make you wear a long paper poncho to cover up, which happened to me in a couple of churches). Lastly, I’m getting older and I’m increasingly trying to find alternatives to wearing shorts since my thighs are not as taut as they once were (not even close, wah). So, these lightweight pants tick a lot of boxes for me.

Interestingly, I find soft pants dressier to wear than jeans and shorts. I felt very appropriate wearing them out to dinner with heels or wedges and a blazer or fun little jacket. Kind of ironic since they literally feel like pajama pants on your body.

Anyway, back to the lace pants. Looks like they are an additional 50% off the sale price. I’d grab these (quick!) for sure, or you will regret it. They’re true to size (medium), but I wanted a slouchy drape to the pants. I did not want these fitted through the leg.

What do you think of soft pants? xx
