The Dream Pant & One Year Gray-aversary!

December 22, 2020

Hey Friends!  I know it’s only been a couple of weeks but I missed everyone and the blog already!  The break is just what I needed to focus on the end of the school semester, as well as just some self-care!  But I had to pop up to share some great pants and to celebrate my one year dye-free anniversary!

pear-shape friendly pants


The Dream Pant

Everlane had me at “tailored look, sweatpant feel!”  Let’s face it, the pear-shaped gal spends a lot of time looking for the perfect pair of pants (and jeans).  I’m loving these “Dream Pants” from my go-to eco-friendly brand, Everlane.  They are double knit and have a nice weight to them.  They’re soft and comfortable like sweatpants, with an ankle length, a wide elastic and tie waistband.  I was between sizes on their size chart for these so I went up a size. These are Medium and have a generous fit. If you want something more form-fitting, I’d size down.  They come in black and a charcoal gray.  Also, the washing instructions are “machine wash cold and hang dry” which is great.  I always prefer machine-washable!  Ooo, I almost forgot, wrinkle-free too!

one year dye-free

And here’s my hair at one year dye free and I’m totally loving it!  When I cut the last of the bleached blond ends off, I’ll probably do a post dedicated to the transition.  If you’re new around here and curious, here are some other blog posts about it:  Update at 9 Months,  16 Weeks, and The Beginning.


Hope all my dear sweet readers are having a safe and cozy holiday season, with lots of fun and joy!


Fun & Fashion,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!

    Awesome outfit !! You look awesome in it and your hair is perfect !! I’m on the same journay with my hair. I stopped coloring the end of November 2019, so it’s a bit over a year. Love my natural hair.

    Trousers that don’t need any ironing sound good to me. Your grey hair certainly looks much better then mine.
