A different kind of boyfriend jean…


I went to college in the 90’s when grunge was at it’s height of fashion.  I loved thrift stores almost more back then, than I do now.  Mostly out of necessity, but also for the thrill of the hunt like today.  One of the things I used to love to find and wear were army pants.  Like…actual US Military Army pants.  They were always so perfectly worn in and soft, and I loved the extra large pockets.  Made me feel dainty, which when you’re 5’8 is a total plus 🙂

 Anywho!  I found these “Army Pants” by Current Elliott on Twice (online resale store that has great stuff and repeatedly sends coupons!) for $21.  I had a $10 coupon from a prior purchase, so I jumped on them.  I wasn’t disappointed.  They fit exactly like the true army pants!  I like that they are a different spin on the boyfriend jean too…Blog Stem Top Current Elliott Army Pant Dr Scholls-1 Blog Stem Top Current Elliott Army Pant Dr Scholls-2While we are talking about nostalgia, how about these Dr. Scholls!??  I remember my mom wearing them in the 70’s, so when they kind of came back in the 90’s I snatched up a few pairs.  Ok…I got 3 colors haha.  Of course I still have them.  I figure if Birks are making a comeback, these should too!

Keeping it Real…
We are on Spring Break in Whistler right now.  I wasn’t sure if we would take many pics while here, and we haven’t.  Truth be told, the first day, I was in no mood to take her picture.  She figured out how to climb out of the pack and play, so it was co-sleeping for us.  She hasn’t done that since she was 3 months old, so there was a lot of.  “Hi Mommy…kiss?  Hug?  Daddy, what are you doing?  Kiss?  Hug?”  When she finally went to sleep it was horizontally across the bed with her feet in the Huz’s face and arms stretched out to mine.  Needless to say, NOT much sleep was had, and I was a tad cranky the first day of our trip.  Oh, and even if I had, I forgot my card reader. 😦 These were taken the Friday before we left… Might be the only outfit post we do this week.  Feel free to check out our Instagram for iphone trip pics.
