It has been awhile since I went out and bought clothes (okay, not exactly true, but I mostly buy work clothes). So, while Lindsey was attending a class at the Waterfront, I decided to go shopping for myself. Here is what I bought:
I picked up a new black belt from American Eagle. I have been asking Lindsey to get me one for awhile now and she always forgets. So I said screw it and bought myself one. Nothing major, just a plain black belt, my old one is a little small (it is like eight years old and fit me better back in those days).
I also wanted a pair of khaki pants. Not for work, but for going out and whatnot. As I get older, I notice that I actually enjoy wearing my work pants more often. So I went out and bought a pair of Banana Republic chinos (Christ, does that make me sound like any more of a yuppy?)
Fortunately, I had a coupon for 40% off any regularly priced item. When I went to check out, the girl informed me that they changed the sale and you could get two items for the same 40% off.
So I decided on the orange sweater. It was a tough decision because I liked all the colors there. I have a nice black sweater, and the red one was great, but I have so many red shirts. I just bought a brown sweater…it was tough, but I finally decided that since I have no orange shirts, this would be the way to go. I think it looks great.
I went to a bunch of places looking for a jacket. I know what I have in mind, but I could not seem to find one anywhere.
I found a couple I liked at different stores, but they were more than I was willing to spend. I am looking for something to wear during the fall/spring seasons that is not a black fleece (since I already have one). I like to wear brown shoes at times and it looks rather silly when I wear them with a black jacket. I know, I am such a loser for worrying about these things.
I decided to say screw the jacket search and look for shoes. Yes, I love buying shoes. That was the last time I purchased shoes (I am pretty sure I linked to my other shoe adventures there). I went to Journeys and looked at a few that kind of liked. I decided to try these Sperry’s on. I loved them, they are comfortable and look very good on me. I now need to get a pair of the black ones.
I should be a professional shoe photographer! And yes, I am now an 83 year old man wearing loafers. Whatever, judge me all you want.
I lied earlier. I did buy some work clothes. The Place That Shall Not Be Named no longer carries the awesome sweater vests that I wear during the winter. So…I went out and bought a few of my own. I will not be forced to wear a tie!
