It's been so long since I've worn something worth dragging Mike out of the house for pictures. Actually, I've just been wearing various of the above theme, but yesterday I wore proper shoes and a belt, so I'm deeming this "put together."
I was so excited to debut these jeans on the blog, as I thought I finally found a pair that fit perfectly right out of the store. How wrong I was. The minute I loaded these photos onto my decrepit Dell I saw it: the evil denim crotch bunching that happens when your butt wears a different (i.e. larger) size jean than your waist. Sigh. To the tailor they go. I wish clothes were still made like they were in my favorite childhood books, Anne of Greene Gables and the entire Little House series. In those books there was always at least one scene where the ladies would go to the general store, choose a fabric they liked, then have a dress made to their measurements. I loved that purchasing clothes was such a special occasion. I also loved the part when Anne Shirley broke a slate over Gilbert's head. I think if it weren't for the lack of television, gender equality, and sterile medical equipment, I would have really liked living in 1908.
