Let me tell you, the first Thursday of the month sure seems to always be here before I even realize it, and this one is no different. So, what am I wearing today?
Sometimes, I wear jeans. And sometimes, I don’t think jeans are blog worthy. Actually, I never think jeans are blog worthy, but today it’s what I’m wearing and they just so happen to be of the hand-me-down sort. Not thrifted exactly, but a good ole hand-me-down counts as such over here.
There is really nothing special to say about these – they are just jeans after all. They’re what I wear when I don’t feel like wearing anything else. Remember all that laundry I said I didn’t have to do last Friday? Well, it caught up to me, and I was running short on everything so it took me no time at all to pick out the first thing I found – which happened to be my most casual outfit lately. I’m not too crazy about the fit of these jeans, they are a little baggy, but they do just fine for what they are – just a pair of jeans.
Speaking of which, are jeans not the hardest item of clothing to shop for? Or is it just me who feels this way? I have searched and searched for a pair to love, and it hasn’t happened in a long while. I once bought a pair from the Gap, for $50, and they were the closest pair to perfect that I had ever found. I never wanted to wear them. Make sense? I knew if I wore them, they would get worn and it would be a long time before I found another pair to take their place (and $50 was a little steep in my opinion for a pair of pants). I know with some things, you get what you pay for, and maybe jeans fit that category, I don’t know for sure though, I am still looking.
I still have them, and evidently they got worn plenty because they have a few unfortunate holes, and now I can’t wear them even if I wanted to. Having a pretty close to perfect pair of jeans sure was nice while it lasted. I hope to one day find another pair. For now, these will do just fine.
