What I Wore: Stripes and the Same Jeans

This is a bit of a strange What I Wore post, because the first outfit was before I went out of town and the second was after. I’m also wearing the same pair of jeans, but these outfits are a good three weeks apart. I guess one can look at this as a multiple ways to wear the same jeans post.

I walked the Freedom Trail in Boston last fall, so of course I had to tour the Mojave while I was back in town. Read more…
