An outfit made for getting things done


Today’s illustration:

I hate feeling frumpy when I run errands (especially on a dreary day like today.)  Thankfully, my cozy sweater, black denim, and comfortable ankle boots come to the rescue!  Nothing says comfort like jeans.

Okay – here’s the story with my black denim.

I had a wonderful pair of black jeans from Madewell.  I adored these pants.  But after a couple of months – they started getting gaping holes on the inseams.  What the heck?!

I found this replacement pair on asos.  I got the petite size, but still had to hem them (to ankle length.)  The asos version is a thicker and less shiny than the Madewell pair, but definitely better since they haven’t fallen apart!
