Every woman should find that pair of pants that essentially lets her wear pajamas in public. Yes, I know plenty of people actually wear pajamas in public, but I judge those people. Unless you’re sick, there are very few excuse for such behavior. What would Stacy and Clinton say? Something sassy, I’m sure.

Anyway, I’ve been trying to jump on the lounge-pants-as-real-pants bandwagon for several months now, but it took quite a few tries to find the perfect ones for me. I loved the idea of a silky fabric nice and loose around the hips that just drapes gracefully to the ankle. This post on Pink Peonies was part of what sparked my interest. I actually went to Nordstrom and tried on the same ones. Let me tell you, it wasn’t pretty. Apparently the lovely blogger I admired is actually 11 feet tall with the hips of a 13-year-old, because I looked like an Oompa Loompa in them. A few other pairs I tried were no better – even at Ann Taylor, who very rarely lets me down in the pants department. I had almost given up, but I’m so glad I didn’t! Who finally came through for me, you might ask? None other than trusty old Target. These fit perfectly, and with a fun print to boot.

If you’re like me (short and curvy on the bottom), let me save you some frustration and share a few tips on shopping for relaxed fit pajama-esque pants. Mid rise: good. Pleats: bad. Slightly tapered leg: good. Overly baggy: bad. Cropped length: good. Elastic around the ankles: bad.
