Back to the Black Ponte Pants

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.

  2. Tell me about it Lisa , I only have to look at a cake and put on several pounds on the hips ( lol ) and being short doesn't help either ! , I love this outfit , I am really getting into the colour grey in my clothes and your top is great ,have a fab week .

  3. Right there with you Lisa, 12 pound gain this year.. I said I was kicking it back into gear yesterday, but failed miserably... I have two pairs of Old Navy ponte knit leggings that are my best friends lately. I love how heavy the ponte knit is compared to other leggings. The poncho. ponte pants and pointed toe ankle boots are all very on trend...
