maybe i’m not cool anymore?

If you know me at all, you know I wear the same 10 things over and over again. I think less is more and I like my whole wardrobe to fit in one big suitcase. Mostly I’d rather spend my money on gas, plane tickets, and delicious food- not clothes. It’s all about the experiences & people, not the stuff, baby! (If you’ve followed here for any amount of time, yes, that’s probably the same $8 mint green cotton tank top in nearly every photo you’ve seen me in during the past 2 years.)

As the weather has warmed and I’ve started to pull out my summer-wear I decided it was time to force myself to take on my find a new wardrobe to make sure I am halfway presentable in public including shoes for $200 or less wardrobe, challenge. My current clothes are actually getting pilly and look awful- that’s how much I’d rather spend money on life than clothes. And…

I hate shopping.

Did I mention I hate shopping?

I’d rather be taking a road trip, going for a run, drinking a beer at a picnic table with friends at a park, writing, sipping wine in Napa, dancing, camping, sitting at the beach, eating chocolate, planning an event- anything. 

So forced-shopping-fest-because-I’am-starting-to-look-homeless, happened this past weekend. Places like T.J. Maxx, Marshall’s, Ross, Old Navy and Target are my jam for the $15 or less sundress, skirt and tank top search. So there I was, begrudgingly piling my cart miles high to try a million things on, and what do I see?

80's style

Notice the sweet additional acid washed option below this triple-button pair. Yeah!

Apparently the cool kids are wearing these again. I’m thinking my Mom could pull out something that I wore that looked like these from 4th grade in 1988.

Let’s just say I steered clear and ended up with nothing at this particular T.J. Maxx. Typical try on piles of things and lucky if I end up with one. Perhaps I missed the boat not trying these awesome jorts on. I could’ve made a killer outfit with my clear jelly shoes that used to get rocks stuck in the heels when I was 10 years old if I could somehow dig those up again.

Oh, full-circle fashion. We can’t even hate you, you are so funny.


What’s your style?
