I wore my pajamas almost the entire weekend. I know, where’s my dignity? I’m pretty sure it was boycotting the whole lets wake up at the crack of dawn thing my kids were so excited about. I was actually dressed (in real clothes) for a total of two hours. I spent those two hours thrifting and driving around Oakland. I probably didn’t need to actually put on real clothes for those activities, but at least I made the effort. Josh worked most of the weekend so it was pretty low key around here. I was glad I took those few hours to go thrifting though because I found these jeans (and the shirt and bag, but the jeans were my favorite find). I love dresses and skirts and I love vintage, but jeans, the modern-fit-my-curves kinda jeans, they have a special place in my heart. There are two things I’m not easy to please on: shoes and jeans. Both items have to look AND feel great and I rarely find those two qualities. These pants were much too big (two sizes), but I knew I could probably alter them to fit since they already had a great shape. I’ve mentioned the Cotton & Curls blog before, but I have to mention it again. This tutorial was magic. I’ve never altered pants before, but they turned out great. Side note: I can never pass up blue and white stripes (especially when on a no-wrinkle shirt) and I’m a sucker for leather backpacks. In my defense, the previous backpack I was carrying around was decorated elaborately with Toy Story figures and didn’t match anything I owned. You understand that it was the boys’ backpack and I only carried it around for diapers and snacks right?
Another side note: I never thrift for my unmentionables. That’s just gross and I have standards.
