Sartorially Particular

I had a pair of cutoff shorts that I made out of a pair of jeans that I got secondhand in 2004.  I really loved the shorts and they were my weekend uniform for the past few summers.  But gosh, they finally fell apart.  They actually split at the seams.  I thanked them for their service and realized I did not have anything with which to replace them.  (Note: denim cutoffs are EMOTIONAL CLOTHING.)

I shot this look in San Jose the same week that I replaced the denim cutoffs and I had very similar thoughts on both days.  The day I shot this look, I remember thinking, "How very over are skinny jeans?" And later in the week I thought "are denim cutoffs even something I need to keep wearing?" Then I realized that I know exactly what I like to wear and so these are the wrong questions.

Things I like include:

1. Comforting cotton basics

2. Lack of pattern except geometrics

3. Pants that hit above the ankle except I don't actually want exposed ankles; I want stretchy cotton socks on my feet and covering my ankles.

4. High waisted EVERYTHING

5. To never be itchy

6. Cardigan sweaters all day every day

OH MY GOD I AM OFFICIALLY OLD AND PART OF BEING OLD IS NOT CARING THAT YOU HAVE BECOME SARTORIALLY PARTICULAR AND YOU FIND EVERYTHING ELSE EXHAUSTING TO CONSIDER.

I don't think this means I'm not fun anymore, right? Fingers crossed that it means I am more fun than ever because it's kind of like I've passed through some sort of second puberty known as ages 25-35 and now I can really get my groove on.

Thanks for reading.  Hope the weekend was a good one.
