Fat Tuesdays : New jeans

I haven't worn jeans in two years. It's not that I hate them, it's just that they never fucking fit. Everything is low rise, tight on the thighs and generally awkward. I could make my own, but it's pretty difficult and one of the things my mom says is more cost effective to buy. So I just gave them up and went with the joy of leggings...until I got this summer job.

I knew the job would require nicer khakis, eventually. If I had known that eventually was my second week, I might not have gotten these jeans. I dislike jeans for the fit issues and because I can't wear them when it starts to be remotely hot or humid. I just hate the fabric and get too hot. But I've been wearing these jeans a lot, actually. They're size 16 and I found them at Old Navy. They sell them in the store, but I found them online. They are actually high-waisted and cover my love handles and make the gap from butt to waist (which will never be solved in a five-pocket classic jean, so jeans companies can stop saying it) nearly unnoticeable. I've been wearing them a lot and have been considering a second pair. If only I weren't so short that I had to hem them. Ugh.
