Yesterday, I went shopping for jeans. In case you missed my updates on Facebook, it did not go well. I am a proud shorty who comes in at 5’2” AND A HALF. I honestly don’t ever think of my height except when I am shopping for clothes. I always go right to the “short” lengths – if a pant doesn’t come in short then I don’t even bother looking at it. Clearly, jeans/pants manufacturers have a different idea of what short is because the short style pants are still way too long for me. I find it so frustrating.
Based on my extensive internet research (of Googling it and then reading the top two hits), it appears that all the short people in America are buying jeans and then having them hemmed. Really? Is this what I need to do? Who has time for that added inconvenience? Instead, I’m just going to keep complaining about it and inevitably cuffing my pants. Sigh.
Well when all was said and done, I did come home with one pair of jeans so I thought I would share them with you. These are Old Navy Sweetheart Style Boot Cut Jeans in Short…
Still too long but this is always about as good as I get.
