On Saturday this is what I wore:
My Fables By Barrie high waisted jeans, a hand-me-down striped tank, and Top Shop sweater.
I have literally had this tank top my entire life. Well, my sister had it first, and it may have been from a cousin before that, but it was handed down to me at some point and I have never given it up. For years I didn’t wear it. But my hoarding finally came in handy and for about a year now it’s had a steady spot in my wardrobe.
The jeans are fantastic, too. I have had such a great experience with Fables By Barrie on Etsy…and they’re on ModCloth, too! I was feeling pretty nautical on Saturday (as you can tell, I’m sure).
And on Sunday, I worked my long 12 hour shift, so I went for a lazy look:
Jeans from Find, American Apparel tee + hoodie, Toms shoes!
Ryan refers to this outfit and variants of it as my “Sunday outfit”. It’s easy to move in, and I don’t mind getting it dirty. I work for 12 hours on Sunday pushing a wheelchair, cleaning, and doing lots of undesirable tasks, so I can’t really dress to impress on this shift.
But, these jeans were a total triumph for me. I found them at Find about a year ago. I had been looking for another nice pair of high waisted jeans. My FBB ones were not always casual enough for every day wear, and my J Brand jeans needed a bit of relief.
I stopped into my favourite thrift store, and there these were. Just my size and for $10. Perfect! I wore them right out of the store! And as I turned the corner from the shop doorway onto the sidewalk I thrust my hands into my pockets with satisfaction…and found a dollar. Brilliant.
Those were my weekend wears! I’m dressed today, but haven’t taken photos yet. You’ll be hearing from me soon
