It was 50 degrees on Sunday. AMAZING. All of the snow melted, and everyone in the Twin Cities did a dance of joy. Now it is 20 degrees and we’ve got snow again. Joy-dancing has mostly ceased. This outfit got worn for a day of weekend errands that included visiting George’s to pick up some leather dyeing supplies. Project post to come as soon as I can get it together!
Like many kids, I grew up making rainbow tie dye shirts at summer camp, and associated them with youth. And eventually Deadheads. But now I totally dig black tie dye prints, and this one is no exception. Kinda looks like BADASS SNOW. Or maybe polluted snow. OK, let’s step off that train of thought …
My poor sparkly leggings have now been worn and washed so many times that they’re somewhere between leggings and tights. I’ve ordered the pair I linked to above – these high-waisted ones – and am hoping they’ll have the same subtle sparkle. My cotton leggings just get pilly and gross after a couple of years of wear, but these seem to be getting gradually thinner. Eventually, I guess, they will BECOME tights. A most unexpected transformation.
These moto-detail jeans stuck around through many rounds of closet purging, but this was their final outing. I was convinced to order a size 6 – not sure what I was smoking at the time – and they’re lower rise than I prefer. So they cut into my midsection in a most uncomfortable way. (Hence the roomy sweatshirt.) I’ve since tracked down some moto leggings – similar to these – that have similar design features and are far comfier. These jeans were certainly badass, but badass doesn’t trump uncomfortable.
