I thrifted the cardigan sometime ago for a dollar. A dollar! It looked almost brand new except for a small patch of mildew stain at one corner. That was removed easily using Vanish. I wore it for a while today but the weather was so warm it was removed and kept in my bag the entire day. This just further cements my decision not to get a boyfriend/ boys’ jacket. It would just be another white elephant in my wardrobe. I am tempted to clear my wardrobe by selling some items online. I may just do that..

The gingham is a DIY using a tank pattern by Grainline Even though I referred to the sizing chart, it turned out too small and too short.:( Nonetheless, it’s cute and reminds me of my kindergarten uniform.

How long/ many times do you wear your jeans before you wash them? I used to wear them for a month ( or two) until my roomie/sister complained that it stank. Oops. Jeans are meant to be worn this way, no? I wash them more often now though because of a certain grubby little boy who likes to wipe his hands on my jeans/ blouse/ face. I think babies are dangerous. My nose is badly scratched, my eye was nearly blinded ( several times), I have bruises all over , I get pinched and punched everyday. I have had remote controls, hard board books and phones thrown at my face. Why didn’t anybody tell me I need to wear protective suit when handling a toddler? Nobody warned me a baby can be this destructive. I think I need my husband’s riding helmet too.
