American Classic – Day 3
I am still camping. Yes, I can’t really believe it either. This must be what homeless people feel like. My cell phone doesn’t work out here, so I have to look at the sun to try and figure out what time it is. My children foraged in the woods for food yesterday, found a fennel plant and devoured it, picking it apart with their filthy hands. It seems we’re all turning into wild animals. We spent most of the day at the river and since I don’t really have any American Classic “river-wear”, I wore this –
The Capri pants were way too long, so I got soaking wet, but at least I didn’t get sunburned. And I certainly didn’t blend in with the rest of the bohemians at the river because, well, they were naked.
I want to thank all of you sooooo much for your wonderful suggestions on where to buy American Classic clothes. Reading them over made me feel for the first time like I officially have a fashion blog and not just a blog about someone who dresses up in uncomfortable clothes and talks about her goats. Since I’m not anywhere close to being a fashion expert, I feel strange giving fashion advice, like hey, I can’t sing! Maybe I should give people singing advice! Or maybe I can tell astronauts how to pilot a space station — I’m sure they’d appreciate that!
But since you all do know fashion, I feel so excited to share your advice on where to shop online for American Classic clothes. I’ll start with your suggestions for the biggies —
LL Bean, J Crew, Calvin Klein, Zappos, Old Navy, Target, Gap, Ann Taylor Loft, Banana Republic and Lands End. The winner for most suggestions was Ann Taylor Loft — inexpensive, good quality and true to size (their clothes even run a little big — which I alway appreciate for body-image boosting reasons).
And if you’re looking for something in particular, there was a suggestion for shopstyle.com — a site where you can find virtually everything.
When our camping adventure is over on Saturday and we are safely back indoors, tick-free and clean, I am going to start my adventure — my online shopping adventure, that is. Thank you! I can’t wait!
