Eleanor in Australia wrote this post the other day about the uncomfortable quality of bluejeans for her specific body type. This got me thinking and I found that I am the exact opposite -- I find jeans amazingly comfortable. Further, they are my comfort. They are my default go-to clothing item when I'm not sure what to wear to casual events. I am confident in them. I figure if they make me under-dressed then oh well -- at least I'll be comfortably, confidently under-dressed.
Further though revealed that jeans are my crutch. They are my clothing rut. They are the fashion uh-oh that I've been stuck in for years. I am going to remedy this...
I've decided that for the summer, I'm going to try to ditch the denim!
No denim jeans on chilly evenings (yes, we have chilly evenings in the summer - this IS Michigan), no denim shorts or jackets. I'm even going to stow away my most comfortable bum-around-in shirt that is only denim colored (it's the softest cotton shirt ever).
I'm giving myself the weekend to pack all the denim I can find in my house into boxes for summer storage. My denimless state will begin on Monday, May 25.
Eleanor has discovered that jeans are not her style. I'm hoping that by the end of the summer they won't be my style, either.
