You told us how much you loved Cynthia of Flight of the Fat Girl when she guest blogged for us in ‘Flight of The Fat Girl’s Adventure Finding the Perfect Jeans. So, back by popular demand, we’re so ecstatic to share Cynthia’s latest adventure in finding the perfect soft pants!
“I’ll just start off by saying that any article of clothing containing the word “soft” is usually a winner, even before it ends up on my body.
No, seriously… Soft things are awesome! Kittens? Love them. Baby cheeks? Obsessed! Soft, flowy pants that make you feel like you belong on a beach with a cocktail in your hand? Um, yes please – where do I sign up!?
The answer? Penningtons. You sign up at Penningtons… Or rather, you try on a pair, fall in love with them, and realize that life as you knew it before their new collection of soft pants, will never, ever be the same… But be forewarned… If my most recent Penningtons shopping experience has taught me anything, it’s that there are some pretty unpredictable repercussions when it comes to wearing the most amazing pants in the world…
WARNING: The wearing of Penningtons soft pants may cause the following:
An ability, similar to a superpower, to make being incredibly fabulous without sacrificing comfort look easy
Soft pants are basically life’s perfect vehicle for looking effortlessly chic. They feel decadent and naughty to the touch, all the while, exuding class. They’re the answer to the prayers of any woman out there who values looking flawless, while still being able to move freely, avoid chub rub, and feel the breeze upon her lady bits.
This wide leg, solid black pair is the epitome of versatility. I’m totally infatuated with their casual elegance! Not only are they the perfect beach pant, but they work beautifully for occasions such as brunch with the ladies, date night, and/or gazing wistfully off in the distance to one side for no reason!
Sudden urges to make sassy faces and wear cute sunglasses
I couldn’t help it. It was stronger than me! Blame the pants!!!
Their print, and wide leg cut is everything! It’s not my fault if I look adorable!!!
An increase in levels of self-confidence
I’m not even joking. As soon as I tried on the first pair, I was feeling myself already.
These soft capris were one my faves! They hugged my hips and made me feel totally sexy! The print is playful yet still sophisticated, and the ruched, capri length is super flattering!
The uncontrollable need to stand in frolicsome poses and love every minute of it
When you’re wearing pants this pretty, it’s cause for celebration! I mean, could this fabric be any more stunning?
This pair of soft skinnies fuse the taper I love in a skinny jean, with the ease and laissez fair silhouette of the quintessential bohemian palazzo pant to perfection.
Overwhelming feelings of contentment and satisfaction with life in general, because everything just feels right in soft pants
That’s the truth, and if anyone ever tries to tell me that a great pair of pants don’t have the power to save lives, I’m calling malarkey!
These luxurious, soft skinnies are the ideal combination of boho and class. With a gorgeous black & white print and perfectly tapered leg, paired with the matching top, they’re positively divine!
Now that you’ve been sufficiently informed of the potential side effects of wearing Penningtons glorious soft pants, you can make an informed decision on whether you’d like to take the risk and step into a pair yourself.
All I can say is, they’re gooooood. Really good. So good, that three pairs of them (the black wide legs, the black & white printed skinnies, and the capris) followed me home, and it pained me not to leave with all of them!
My new soft pants will be coming with me on vacation this summer, where they’ll fulfill their destinies as the perfect beachwear, as I sip from a coconut, and live out mine in style!
As always, many thanks to all the wonderful staff at the Penningtons Pointe-Claire location, and to the beautiful Samantha, who was once again, so very helpful and accommodating!!!”
