These pants are quite the throwback. Junior, maybe senior, year of high school. And whenever it's closet clean out time, I just can't part with them (you can't see it in these pictures, but they have a small pinstripe).

I was about to toss them (they're kind of a funky fit, and really wide-legged, and what do I wear with them?), but my friend Amanda gave me some new ideas for them. And so, life was breathed back into these old pants. I chose a baseball tee, plaid tennis shoes, my trusty cognac faux leather jacket, and of course, my aviator-style sunglasses with monogrammed croakies. We'll call this
"casual, menswear-inspired, almost-but-not-quite-vintage wide-legged pants."
How's that sound? ;)

And please wish me luck - currently I'm running 13.1 miles (I use running very loosely) down a canyon, into Old Town, where I hope to have a beer waiting for me at the finish...

30 for 30: day 12 & day 13

day 12
Day 12, I barely made it out of my pajamas, let alone make it out of my running gear...
a la Jimmy Fallon and (video HERE).
New favorite saying at our house.

day 13


Not my favorite outfit from this challenge. I think both the chambray and the pants are a bit big, and don't flatter my figure very well - I look a bit shapeless I think. However, they say wide-legged trousers are coming back, soooo, good thing I hung on to mine from high school, right?! Right.

Also, thanks to my bestie for taking these sunset-time pictures for me :) I tried to do a creative writing post, I kept coming up short. Womp womp.
