A year ago, I bought a $50 pair of jeans and was really excited.
After all, I’m not a size 14, so I’d probably have to wear my size 5 to get a pair of pants that fit.
But as I walked into the checkout line at Target, I saw that the jeans were too big for me.
My new size 9 wasn’t the size of the jeans I wanted.
I was like, I don’t have time to go through all that.
I could just buy a new pair of skinny jeans.
And the store would still not sell them.
So I went back to my closet, found the clothes I had in the back of my closet that were still in my size 8s and put them in the closet too.
I wasn’t ready to give up my pants yet.
I bought my $50 jeans.
I bought the size 9 pants.
I didn’t want to change out my jeans.
I’d already worn them three times before and it felt like I’d never wear them again.
But, I had to find the right jeans to go with my new size 10.
I went to Target and found a $40 pair of chinos from Forever 21.
They were a little too big, so my size 10 jeans fit me just fine.
The store’s jeans had the same size as the jeans in my closet.
That was the beginning of my fall fall in style.
