There’s an awesome blog run by a couple of UT students, we hate nike shorts, that I thought about yesterday as my fiance and I we were dropping off the kid at golf camp. Kelly & Kristin started their blog showcase “college life and fashion beyond nike shorts” and I think it’s great – there are WAAAAY too many nike shorts being worn in Austin on women doing things other than exercising. I’ve always been kind of amazed by what people wear outside of the house, especially in the Summer, and now that I live in a city with lakes and in a neighborhood where everyone has a pool, I’m being forced to endure women dressed in swimsuits, barely covered up with something SHORT, and WET BUTTS at the grocery store. Ewww.
Anyway, I’ve started dropping my fiance’s son off and picking him up from camp this week, so I’m seeing all kinds of outfits – including nike shorts, baggy cargo shorts with UNDERWEAR showing (yuck), workout clothes, you name it. Not that there’s really anything wrong with that – I’ve just never been able to leave the house, unless I’m running or exercising, in shorts. I DO understand being busy, in a hurry, etc., but I also believe in taking pride in one’s appearance, no matter what you’re doing or where you’re going – I definitely have “inside the house or walking the dog ONLY” clothes that I would never dream of wearing “outside the house”. I just can’t do it.
So, my outfit today was kind of a typical throw-on and go outfit (not the same outfit I wore to walk the dog this AM), and what I wore to drop the future-step-son off at camp, then go to Target and Whole Foods. It’s nothing special, just what I’m comfortable in 🙂
James Perse tube dress – this is probably 6 years old?
James Perse boxy top – got this at the outlet on Memorial Day
Swedish Hasbeens clogs
Vintage woven tote (I can’t stop carrying this, even though one of the straps broke. I just tied it back on :))
