bits and bobs: A random assortment of things; small remaining pieces and things
I need some new jeans. My favorite style, the Natalie boot cut jean from Kut from the Kloth that I’ve been wearing for the past 12 years are all faded and worn and almost all of them either have grass or paint stains on them. I’m also down a few pounds since the beginning of the year and need something with a better fit.
I was just going to order a few more pairs of the same style, but I think I’m ready to try something new. Something without a boot cut this time. I mean, at some point all those hippies had to give up their beloved bell bottoms, right? Maybe it’s time for me to give up the boot cut and try something else.
But is 48 too old for skinny jeans? And where do you draw the line between skinny jeans and slim fitting jeans. The pair of jeans I found online look more like slim fitted jeans and not the kind of pants that look like skin hugging stretch pants.
And is that really a high waist or has everyone just been wearing low rise jeans for the past 10 years and we don’t know what a normal waistline for pants looks like anymore? I’m so confused.
This is a public service reminder to SAVE THOSE PUMPKIN STEMS! Who knows, this time next year they could be going for double.
Speaking of pumpkins, if you haven’t already tried this recipe for a pumpkin pie milkshake, make sure you do. I woke up craving one this morning and now I can’t stop thinking about it.
If you’ve been thinking about moving to the Dingle peninsula in County Kerry Ireland, I have the perfect property for you. It’s private, has a view of the ocean and there’s plenty of room for a garden.
And last but not least, do people actually wear these Birkenstock shearling lined sandals? Where would they wear them? And just in case you are wondering, these beauties sell for $150!!! $150. That buys a lot of beans.
Well that’s all I’ve got for today.
Have a great one, and stay warm.
