Top three summer essentials:
1. straw boater hat (to provide a little shade for your face everywhere, even in the isles of Kmart)
2. denim shortalls (a fresh alternative to the ubiquitous denim cutt-offs)
3. pastel sandals (give your twinkle toes some breathing room)
Do you remember back in middle school when all the cool kids wore jumpers? They had to be CK’s and if they weren’t, then you were considered a poser. I never followed any trends back then. My brother and I went shopping for clothes only once at the beginning of every school year and even then were given a limited budget of a $100 each. Needless to say a $70 Calvin Klein jumper was out of the question. Anyway, that mattered little because eventually it quickly became a little too cool, over-used, and lost its appeal.
Flash forward to now. I am browsing the thrift racks and come across a perfectly worn-in, light denim pair, in my size, and for 3 bucks no less! And I’m thinking these are so uncool, they’re kinda cool again. So this summer, I propose we keep cool with midnight margaritas, cheers to history repeating itself and bring back denim shortalls!
What the heck is going on with my picture? After the third re-upload, I’ve resigned to leaving it ‘as is’ and posted in landscape format. For a detailed view, please tilt your head 90 degrees to the right or visit my blog. k thanx!
