So if you have been following along, you know my goal at the beginning of the summer season was to lose ten pounds. Instead of losing ten, I lost five; and I am considering that a win because even though I didn’t reach my goal, I did lose something! Of course, I am still a little self-conscious of my weight. I haven’t been this heavy since I was five months pregnant, so I try to wear clothing that slims me down a few pounds; or at least hides my pounds! haha
I jumped for joy when Chico’s announced they were introducing a new “So Slimming Juliet” pant. I had never tried a slimming pant pant before, so I was intrigued! Although the pants come in classic hues such as black or navy, I decided to be bold and go for an animal print pant. I have never worn animal print pants before! Meow!
When the pants arrived, I was thrilled! There is a little hidden panel inside the front of the pants to smooth down the belly. The waist is also elastic; so if I gorge on lasagna-forgetting my diet-I won’t pop out of my pants. haha The fabric is really soft, and they are machine washable; so that is always a plus!
If you read my post last week, you already know I had surgery about a week ago. I had abdominal surgery so I was thrilled to see how soft these pants were; and to find a soft elastic waistband. They are perfect for me! My mom has been staying at my house to help me with the kids while my husband is at work, so she was here when I tried on the pants. Her eyes popped out of her head and she told me they work! She said they do slim me down! Love that!
The pants are not tight fitting, so they work over boots for the fall. Since I love to wear booties in the fall, this is a godsend! I wore this outfit on my first day out of the house after my surgery. It was so comfortable and I felt great! I also need to give this shrug a shout-out. I saw it in person when I was at Chico’s headquarters in August and it was beautiful! It comes in so many pretty colors, I may need to pick up a second one. It’s great when the fog rolls in, and it’s perfect for transitioning from summer into fall. Love!
If you are like me and want to slim down just a little bit, or you just want a machine washable, comfortable pair of pants that also happen to look fashionable, then I highly recommend trying out the So Slimming Juliet pants by Chico’s. You can find them online here.
