Thanksgiving is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. And perhaps even more than an actual marathon, it’s a marathon that requires some comfortable pants. Common knowledge seems to be that running 26.2 miles requires pants tighter than your actual skin. Ever tried to wear a pair of those to this marathon? HA! That’s a no go. Am I saying that eating for five hours straight is more difficult than running for five hours straight? Hey don’t look at me like that, I’m just here reporting the facts.
Of course, there’s also that component of Thanksgiving that requires you to wear something a bit nicer than say, your Friday night eating cookie dough on the couch outfit. It’s a holiday remember. You’re seeing family. And people are going to want to take pictures. And it’s also cold. So, here are some pant options that are a huge step up from sweats but which still allow ample space for pie-induced stomach expansion. Happy Thanksgiving friends!
Mashed potatoes or not, I just flat out love these pants. I shall buy them and wear them to work on Fridays when I treat myself to a Chipotle followed by a box of Insomnia cookies (delivery, of course).
