I had the following conversation with my husband about these gauchos:
Me: (twirling) What do you think about these pants?
Him: (blank look) Pants?
Me: (high kick to the side to show off said pant-ness) Yeah, pants!
Him: Ummmmm. . .
Me: Awesome, right?
Him: I would call those “I dare you pants”.
Him: As in, “I dare you to be attracted to me in those pants”.
Me: (twirling a little dejectedly now) But I need something I can pair with a little sandal and a tank and just, you know, bum around in.
Him: (shaking head) Jeans? Capris? Shorts? ANYTHING else? Why would they ruin a perfectly good skirt like that?
Me: (sad face) Maybe they’ll go back. Right after I wear them awesomely and write about this in a post, where everyone will totally support their awesomeness. (flounces off)
