Ankle Pants

I don't like them. They're just too close to being just regular pants that aren't quite long enough.

Perhaps I bring my lifetime of tall-girl experience too much to bear on this subject, but I spent the morning cutting two inches off several pairs of ankle pants, causing them to become cropped pants instead. That way there can be no shadow of doubt that these pants are SUPPOSED to be short.

I don't want ANYBODY entertaining even the briefest thought that this 5'10" woman left the house in dorky high-water pants.

lol verbs.The post made me giggle some. I don't like them either and I'm 5'4" I look at them as high waters too. I wear long pants,shorts or capris.

it's been 97 or higher every day for 3 weeks. Why anyone would wear pants right now if they didn't have to is beyond me. Then again, we don't have AC....

I think our high yesterday was in the 60s. June Gloom, we call it.

(And nobody wants to see a 53 year old in shorts. My days of shorts are over. I have entered the cropped pants era.)

Catz said...

hush verbs. I've seen a pic of you and youre still a beautiful lady.I think you'd look good in anything.

I wear shorts at home.

it's been between 90 and 95 and humid. We've had thunder/lightening storms w/heavy rain every night for 2 weeks 'cept last night. we got a light rain for a bit then it stopped.

there's no way in Hell I'd wear a pair of shorts out in public. Are you kidding me? the world doesn't need to see that

Catz said...

I dont wear them in public any more either.

and see, that is the difference between us old broards here and the fat cellulite loaded old bags i see running around in shorts and tank tops.... i ask myself... do they look in the fucking mirror before they leave the house??? apparently not. do everyone a favor and look at your backend in the mirror before you take it out of the house.
no shorts for me either. i looked in the mirror.

I wear mine at home only or to the beach. But the last year I haven't been able to do the beach thing. so home only.

you'd better watch it or a certain windbag will accuse you all of being "holier-than-thou." i own a pair of shorts i wear in public, but that's because i'm too hot to care who notices my pale fat giggle. they're not short-shorts and i'm not traying to impress anyone and all my clevage (breast and butt) is covered. i'd perhaps feel differently if we had AC, but we don't. The fact that I have anything on beyond a large t-shirt and panties impresses me.

we've been getting rain, but it's that evil rain that makes it hotter, not the wonderful kind that breaks teh heat even for a few hours.

I keep all my things covered to.I have been known to not care and make a grocery store run in shorts but not often. I do keep cleavage and butt covered.

wearing short shorts and low cut tops at my age wouldn't be a pretty sight. Might get arrested for indecent exposure or scare someone. :D

Spidey said...

jilly... you are young. you can still wear shorts. i do everyone a favor by keeping that stuff covered.
if a windbag wants to accuse me of being holier than thou then i say... bring it.

vq said...

Jilly, girl, you rock those shorts while you still can! Enjoy! You have totally earned the right to wear whatever you like and be proud.

And catz, if you've got the legs for it, go for it, I say. I see women my age with great, smooth, lean legs. Alas, I simply do not have that. It's not so much about fat, as that I don't want to show so much skin any more.

(Now I'm going to sit back and watch Spidey regulate on somebody! I hope! :D C'mon, somebody, I dare you to call her holier-than-thou.")

Catz said...

Thanks Verbs.You're still a beautiful Lady.Don't forget it. Inside and out.

Jillybean, I'm so proud of you. I know I know you only through blogging but you've made me proud to know such a motivated wise young lady.

All you ladies are wonderful! I met you ladies on shelf in 2000 and then left to persue education in the beginning of 2002 came right back to shelf in 2005 and stayed. You ladies rock!

"the fat cellulite loaded old bags i see running around in shorts and tank tops.." That made me lol

I wear shorts all the time. I'm covered, but there is a goodly amount of fat there, too. It's Texas; only stupid people don't wear shorts whenever they can in Texas.

There are a couple of kids in the hornline in my drum corps that wear blue jeans and won't wear shorts. That's stupid. I'm soaked all the way through all my clothes at the end of a rehearsal. Why on earth would you want to wear blue jeans and be running around in wet heavy denim? Talk about chafing.

Catz said...

I keep my cleavage covered. No short shorts here. Not a pretty sight. I scare myself.

We called them "Floods". :)

I still wear shorts! I just wear longer shorts.

Catz said...

longer here too.
