Oh, you're curious about what I wore for market shopping on a rainy summer day (I know, many of you are shaking your head with a big "No, Who cares?" but patience, please -- I have statistical evidence that some of you come here to check out the sartorial action, such as it is ;-). Well, I was inspired by Sue's recent post on white jeans to pull mine on. I wear them fairly often as an easy way to brighten an outfit and to provide some variety from my near-uniform of jeans-and-top, jeans-and-top, jeans-and-top.
To complement my umbrella and backpack, I wore them with a pearl-grey merino sweatshirt-style T (J Crew, two years old), my super comfy new Sperry topsiders (I bought these for safer cycling after my Birkenstock flew off mid-pedal, but now I'm wearing them daily), a small cross-body bag my M0851 that I've appropriated from Pater who graduated long ago to a messenger-style bag, and my denim jacket (Gap, 4 or 5 years old). I haven't found any credible method for taking WhatIWore selfies inside the apartment (poor light, limited space), and I'm not ready for Pater's camera-wielding on the city streets, but I experimented in the apartment stairwell and I managed these shots. Artsy, no?
The market stalls get set up along a very pretty residential street a ten-minute walk from our place. Downtown towers loom
but a community garden and allotment plots line a pleasant park which includes a large enclosed areas for dogs to romp off-leash and a playground for kids to do the same. Opposite the street from the park is a long row of charming heritage houses (see an example in the top photo, behind the carrots) which have been restored and beautifully integrated with infill architecture.
What would you pick, if you were to put together a post about something you did or saw or felt or wore or read or -- well, your choice -- this weekend. The post could be as long as you want but perhaps you'd better stick to a paragraph or less in the comments. . . Go to! I'm curious about what we'll collect here as a snapshot. Oh, speaking of, if you had taken a photo to accompany your imaginary post, what would it show?
