A weekend ago, Bot and I traveled south down 95 to our friend Jess’s house to hang out and set up for the hootenanny we threw this past weekend. Jess was wonderful and offered to host the shindig at her house so Bot and I went down to see how we could help set up early. I thought we’d be cutting out paper flags, maybe arranging candles around her house, but instead we did some gardening and, as usual, I did not dress appropriately.
[Shirt – Torrid ($35ish); Tripp NYC Black Skinny Jeans – Torrid ($45); Sandals -Impo (bought forever ago)]
To be fair, this outfit actually worked really well for gardening. My skinny jeans are so stretchy that digging up a back yard and planting grass seed again was super easy. I did have to kick off my heeled sandals but gardening is no fun if you can’t squish some dirt between your toes.
This is probably the Swan song for this Torrid shirt. It is one of my favorite items I’ve ever bought from them. Not only is it the cutest ditzy, flower print but it is also a light poplin material so it’s nice and cool during the summer. I wore this constantly in Atlanta, which is probably why the shirt is so dingy looking now, too many washings. I’m glad this shirt got to make an appearance on my blog before its retirement because it was one of the first pieces of clothing that made me think that I could actually be fashionable some day.
As for the gardening, it went really well. The hootenanny was a success too but I’ll have more on that later this week.
