As I have blogged before, I am currently hating on jeans. So I've come up with a plan. I'm still going to try and look "cute" housewives actually look cute? Whatevs. Anyway, I found these cute little Capri pants....they're considered "activewear", but really they're just sweats. But they aren't your average baggy sweats....they're kind of tight. But they aren't spandex either (hello activewear!)- just cotton. Very comfortable. Very cute. And lots of colors to choose from. The best part? They're hella cheap! I got mine at the store for $10 each.


So I bought every color they had.

Then I had an idea....why not just wear these all summer? Screw jeans. I don't need no stinkin jeans to look 'normal' (as opposed to a sweated-out, overweight housewife...not that there's anything wrong with that...). I can wear these Capris, with a cute shirt (or low-cut tank top to show off the girls), and a nice piece of jewelry... and I'm good! I was at Kohl's last week and stumbled upon the jewelry clearance rack. They had $30 beaded necklaces (did I mention I LOVE beaded jewelry?) for $3! What a steal.

So we'll see how well my plan works. It's my poor, pathetic attempt to stay trendy- but affordable- but most of all- comfortable.

If you want to get your own pair of these babies, go here. Make sure to check out all of the colors. They even had black at the store!

Cute - and what a deal! But what will you do when the triple digits arrive? That's the dilemma I'm having!

You are my hero! I always have a pair of these in black and I even sneak wearing them to work! Put a nice top with some super cute shoes and thrifty super beady necklaces and waalaah!
