Wednesday: 45 rpm top, Won Hundred pants, Jil Sander shoes. Bento came running and flopped in the sun spot while I was setting up for this photo. He was afraid I’d close the curtains and block out his sun spot.
The blue in the shoes (warm toned, kinda purple-ish) clashed with the blue in my shirt (cool toned). Oh well. It was amusing to me at the least.
Today there is no photo because I’m wearing a company polo shirt and Grana jeans with my Adidas runners. We had yet another outdoor company shindig and even though I wasn’t planning on running around much, I ended up doing ALL THE THINGS last minute in preparation.
I wore jeans because I couldn’t think of anything else to wear with the company top, which is a super bright blue and not something I normally wear. But now the day is over and I’m at home I’m noticing just how annoyed I am at wearing jeans. It’s not that they don’t fit right, I just don’t feel half as comfortable in them as I do all the other pants in my collection. I need jeans that fit more like baggy pants because the hip hugging in them makes the waist slide down a little and then they feel awkward. It’s kinda amazing how it’s taken me this long to realize just how much I fuss with jeans when I used to wear them religiously. Nowadays I can’t stand jeans and will avoid them at all costs unless I’m cleaning or doing yard work. I am glad I wore them today because I was running around for the company event and getting them very dirty, which seems to be a theme now with jeans for me. They are worn for getting dirty.
I keep thinking about shoes because my shoe collection is greatly lacking. I only have a few I rotate out and while they work (sorta), I really do need some that are a bit more polished and definitely before the cold weather hits.
One last thing about the joy of enjoying clothes: Gretchen said it all perfectly here. I love wearing clothes and buying clothes and I do think about clothes a lot as well. I don’t feel bad about it and I won’t be made to feel guilty for how I spend my money. I’m getting over the idea of wearing work clothes only at work because I love wearing most of them any time now. The only problem with wearing them at home though is I have to do a thorough lint-rolling to get off all the cat hair before putting them away.
