Well, Thanksgiving was a blast! Our week was full of turkey leftovers, rounds of charades, and the traditional Big Foot walk-off. That’s exactly what it sounds like — a contest in the living room where we take turns trying to do the best Big Foot walk. Ain’t family grand?
When I packed for Thanksgiving, I had one thing on my mind: comfort.
Thanksgiving calls for lounge clothes that feel put together — after all, we’re usually just hanging out around the house.
So I packed these jeans. My oldest, most worn-in pair of Madewell jeans.
I know jeans don’t exactly scream lounge clothes, but there’s something about old jeans. They’re so worn and weathered that they’ve become almost like lounge clothes to me.
In fact, something interesting happened the day after Thanksgiving.
I’d been looking forward to that day for months, because Gilmore Girls. (!!!!!)
I hopped on the couch, grabbed the remote, and then my husband looked over at me.
“Don’t you want to change into leggings or something?” He asked.
I was wearing these jeans.
“Nope!” I said. And I binge watched Gilmore Girls the whole night in ’em, curled up on the couch, comfy as could be.
There’s just something about well-worn clothes.
Sure, new clothes can be fun and post-Thanksgiving sales can be helpful when building a wardrobe.
But these jeans remind me that old stuff has something new clothes don’t have– the patina and comfort of age.
So tell me, what are your favorite worn-in pieces? What do you love about them? And have you finished the new Gilmore Girls yet?! (No spoilers in the comments, please!)
See you tomorrow!
