21st Century Casual Pants

By Carissa Tobin

MON APR 20, 2020

Yesterday, I didn't wear the same black leggings I've been wearing every single day of the quarantine.

It was Sunday, so I didn't need to dress up. I needed my casual pants.

But these weren't just any comfy pants.

Back when this all started, I was video chatting with my brother David and he was wearing jeans.

"Jeans?" I asked. "So fancy! I'm just wearing my comfy pants."

"But," I added. "I just bought new casual pants. Modern ones."

"Modern casual pants!" I explained to him. "They're like, actually cute. Maybe even fashionable?"

"So you have 21st Century Casual Pants?" My brother guffawed.

I do. I am the proud new owner of these 21st Century Modern Pants.

But these modern pants make me feel like I'm at least trying a little while wearing the same winter hat and hoodie most days of the week.

I mean, look at my prior pair of casual pants.

These are so out of style that it's possible they might actually be back in fashion.

Wearing pants that are extremely comfortable and also, 21st Century Modern?

Small wins.
