#Microblog Mondays: No Pants

Since last spring, I have worn skirts and dresses exclusively, even on the weekends once I found the elusive super-casual skirt I’d been looking for. It’s primarily because I’ve gained weight and my pants are tight while skirts and dresses tend to be more forgiving. I also find them to be very comfortable. My coworkers tease me because even on “dress-down” occasions at work like retreats, I still wear a skirt or dress.

I promise I have not joined some Duggar-like cult 🙂

We are having the first taste of fall in NC this week, and I panicked a bit yesterday when trying to figure out what to wear. I need to figure out how to transition my summer skirts and dresses into the Fall until it is cool enough to wear my other clothes. Or maybe I need to go shopping. I like the latter option!

The truth is that while I definitely need to lose weight and plan to , the thought of wearing pants feels so constricting and uncomfortable. Guess that places me firmly in the “no pants” camp for now.



  1. I hate that transition too. Almost as much as I hate having to put my feet back into real shoes rather than sandals or flip flops or my hippy-style bare feet.

  2. Oh, good for you! I have quite a number of skirts and dresses but I’m really a jeans kind of girl. Even on days I do start out in a dress or skirt I’m usually back in jeans by the afternoon…
    And yes, shopping is of course always the best option 😉

  3. I am all about the leggings with dresses and skirts. I have been wearing more dresses and skirts right now because it’s still warm in California and I can fit into them again. I hate when my weight dictates what I wear. I hope you find something that feels comfortable soon.

  4. Or you need a job where you can wear yoga pants 🙂 I have to try on two pairs of cords to see if they still fit. I have been putting this off. I don’t want to spent the whole winter in jeans. So I hear you.

  5. I too am in skirts and dresses for the exact same reasons. Though it’s still warm in Georgia, for work, I throw tights under my skirts and wear them year round. As for weekends, I shove myself into jeans. If you find a dress/skirt weekend solution, please share!
