Just Jot January – 2018

Pants is the prompt for today’s #JusJoJan sponsored by Linda G. Hill and as suggested by “Pen” at Pensivity101

Last year my husband and I went to the Summer of Love exhibit at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco and we were brought back to the seventies.  There were several different fashion areas and I took a lot of pictures of the different outfits I would love to have today.  This is not one of them, but it does show the multicolored pants people were wearing back then. 

My husband said he had a pair of jeans from that time that he sewed different colored patches on.  I was always a (little) overweight and did not think that the bright colors and large patterns would look good on me.  
Here are some retro-inspired yoga pants/leggings that you can get now.  I love the colors but somehow I don’t think that garden would look quite as good on my legs.
These are just wrong:
I’m sure I would feel like I had had an accident in my pants if I had to wear these.    
Here is me, from our eighth grade graduation picnic in 1969.  I went to a Catholic school and this was one of the first times we got to wear anything other than our dull green and gray uniforms. 
I thought I was fat then.  Wish I looked like that now except for the chest area if you know what I mean – (I’d say boobs but my kids read my blog once in a while).  Looks like rainbow sherbet doesn’t it?
Have you ever worn wildly decorated pants?  Like the style with the crotch to your knees?  Love to hear!
Hope you are enjoying the #JustJoJan.  Feel free to hop right in any time!

    I’m just now getting into the leggings trend but love them instead of tights with dresses and skirts. I remember having some Hot Pink hot pants in the 70’s as a child. I’ll have to see if there are any pictures of us in fun 70’s clothing – might make for a fun layout!

      Yes, Karen. The LuLaRue ones were ones I was thinking of when I did this post! I saw the invite to your show. I’ll check it out for sure. Yes, do the layouts!

    I have to pass on the low-hanging crotch pants. I enjoy some festive pants — for pajamas, and at the gym πŸ™‚

  3. I remember in the third grade, my mother made me where these plaid knickers to school. Oh my gosh, I’d never been so embarrassed in my life! She thought I looked so cute. πŸ™‚
    Love your retro picture, Janet!

  4. I love the retro picture of you! You look wonderful. πŸ™‚ I have to admit that I wear leggings on my travel days–they aren’t flattering, but they are sooooo darn comfortable. Have a great day!
