This last weekend I went to wine country with my mom, aunts, and cousin to celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday. It’s pretty nice up there.

When I travel, I figure out my outfits in advance to cut down on packing. This last week was obviously very busy and emotional, so I was scrambling to get ready, doing my laundry at the last minute. I put together some outfits, packed, and went to sleep.

My standard airplane outfit is stretchy pants with an elastic waistband, a big shirt, and cozy socks. The stretchy pants are KEY. You have to be comfortable when you’re flying.

When we arrived at the hotel, I unpacked my suitcase…and realized that I had not packed one. single. pair. of pants. All I had were the pants I was wearing – my stretchy elastic waistband pants. My jeans? Still in the dryer.

I immediately reassessed my wardrobe. I’d brought some really cute tops, but nothing that would be appropriate with leggings. Leggings are a new thing for me…and I only wear them when my rear is properly covered. Unfortunately, everything I’d brought wouldn’t cover my tush. I was officially going to be a Fashion Don’t.

Not to mention I was going to have to wear the same pair of pants for three straight days.

So when we went to a fancy winery….I wore stretchy pants.

When we had dinner at an upscale restaurant and my Mom wore a pretty dress…I was in stretchy pants.

The next moring, when we went out for breakfast…I was in stretchy pants.

Stretchy. Pants.

But damn if I didn’t rock my stretchy pants!

But seriously, I could not wait to take those leggings off the SECOND I got home. I might have to burn them.
