Happy labor day! I hope you guys are all enjoying a day off like I am! I’m actually just using today to run errands and get some work done, but at a more relaxed pace. I’ve already taken a week-long vacation in August so I’m not going anywhere for the three-day weekend but I don’t mind. I actually really enjoy spending time at home and just getting things done so I’m not as stressed the following week. That’s not to say I didn’t have fun - I invited a friend over and I cooked a Korean stew (gamjatang - recipe by Maangchi is my favorite version) and the next day he came over again to cook enchiladas for me and Brian! I’ll never say no to yummy food!

You know the rule, “no white after labor day?” Does anyone actually follow that rule? I think it’s one of those rules people don’t even think about following anymore. I definitely don’t! I’m wearing these white wide-legged cropped pants in this look and I gotta say, this silhouette of pants are really starting to grow on me. I have another pair but in a burnt orange color that I really love as well. This striped version is another favorite because of the clean lines and the leg-lengthening effect! I’m trying to get more wears out of them now that the weather is starting to cool off a bit. I couldn’t wear them in the dead of summer as it was over 90 degrees with 70% humidity and I knew I’d sweat through them. I want to get a few more wears out of these before winter though as I just really love them. They’re so comfy!
Relaxed Gray Tee
I bought this tee a long time ago but after several washes, I noticed a tiny hole near the very bottom. It’s not noticeable but I did use it as a sleep shirt after that discovery. I brought it out of retirement for this look because I thought it’d look nice against the white pant and with the tee tucked in, the hole is not visible in anyway. I definitely keep clothes longer than their expiry date which I used to think made me a clothes hoarder but I am realizing may have been a more environmentally conscious thing to do. I learned how to repair the hole via a Youtube video and, as I said in my last outfit post, learning to take care of your clothes, no matter ow expensive or inexpensive, is a very cost-efficient way to be sustainable.
