Well, it's back on the diet wagon for me after a whopping 15 pound! weight gain over the last couple of months or so. Oh, yes....I'm not supposed to think of it as a diet. It's a healthy forever lifestyle change. Another of my New Year's resolutions is to NOT let this happen again this year. I've yo yo'd with my weight all my life. At least I continue to try. But, seriously....I've got to get a grip and get this weight off. Even where I was, 15 lbs ago, I was overweight, but I could live with being that size and was sooooo much happier. I'll get there again. It just really takes daily effort to make a plan (easy part) and stick with it (hard part-ha).
I thrifted these pants maybe 3 weeks ago and have been wearing them like crazy. I was calling them stretch pants because they have no waist closure, just pull on...and they are a nice stretchy fabric that just seems to fit so well.
I had been seeing a word floating around "ponte" so today I googled it. Lo and behold that's what these pants are! I actually also have another pair from Black House White Market that I thrifted a couple of years or so ago, but have not been able to wear for a while because they're in a smaller size. They do have a zipper and snap closure.
Ponte is a combination of rayon, polyester, and spandex. Do you own ponte fabric clothing and do you like it? I'm loving it.
These don't really fit me the way I like best, but they do give me another pant silhouette. I prefer them to be more fitted through the leg and ankle and will keep my eye out for ones of that style for the future.
