Aloha Friday....


This picture was taken in June of 2006. Will was just around 7 months old, and I have on my favorite jean jacket which leads to my question.

Question: What is the oldest item in your closet that you still wear and hope to wear forever???

Mine clearly is this jean jacket, I have had it for about 6 years, which is a very long time for me and I still love it. Even though I have about 5 other jean jackets this is by far my favorite, I think I got my money's worth on this purchase!

i have a shirt from my first Cure concert when i was 13! ok, i don't really wear it, but i did wear it again when i saw them @ ages 23 and 33. maybe i'll wear it again if i get to see them when i'm 43, just for traditions sake.

I have a black skirt I love--some years it's tighter than others, but it is made well and just fits right! Cute pic with your little one!

I have a tweed suit that I adore--it goes in & out of style, but seems to always come back once in awhile--some years the skirt is too small, then I'll just wear the jacket with jeans:) Cute pic with baby!

I my oldest and favorite item is my jean jacket too. I have had it since I was in the 10th grade and I am 23 now.

Hmmm... good question! Um... my Fendi purse that I got for my 24th birthday. I'm now 32. So that's almost like, vintage Fendi, no? ;)

Loukia said...

By the way - such a great picture! You and your little one are gorgeous!

That picture is so cute :) love your jacket, I have some things that are 6 or 7 years old (now some are a bit tight LOL) but I love them and hope to wear soon ;)

The oldest item in my closet now would have to be my wedding dress. It's 7 yrs old.

That is a great pic, btw! :)

Good question, I had to go check...
I have a soft sweater from JCrew that I bought in college (15 years ago...jeez, has it been that long??) It's so soft and snuggly and still one of my favorite things to reach for in the Winter.

Great jacket! I have a skirt that's maybe 11 years old, I don't know that I want to wear it forever, but so far it's gotten a lot of use and still looks good. The question is, will I still fit in it after baby #3...

Keyona said...

I don't think I have anything quite that old...oh wait, I do have Calvin Klein sweatshirt from high school...it has holes in it but I love it! So that makes it 10-12 years old.

All the jeans I wear are over 3 years old. The newer ones just don't fit right !!!

I have nothing old but a pair of knee high boots that I used to love but will probably never wear again because they make me tower over my hubby!! ;-)

Pamela Kramer said...

I've got my skinny jeans that are at least 13 years old. I'm keeping them for that grand day I get skinny again. :)

Brea's Mommy said...

I still have sweaters from high school. I graduated 11 years ago!

AudreyO said...

I have some clothes that I know are 10 years old. I don't know if they still fit, probably not, but I still have them.

seaprincess72 said...

i have this really old nightgown i got since highschool. it has a few holes in it already but i still love it to death.

Caroline said...

Love the jean jacket! Mine is my blue speedo flip flops :) I think they have been around for about 6 yrs or so...they are so comfy! I love Speedo as a former swimmer...hmmm, maybe it's me just not wanting to let go of the idea of being an athlete way long ago? Must be a psychological connection! Or maybe not, maybe it's just cuz I am too lazy to put on a pair that actually need tied. Ha!

Keep It Classy, Jen said...

I would probably have to say...my softball jersey from 8th grade. I still wear it to sleep sometimes!!

And question for you...how do you always look so perfect in your pics?

Jennifer said...

Great photo! And way to go, digging out a photo from 2006. That would've taken me half the day!

He And Me + 3 said...

I have these black shoes that I love I think I have had them for almost 8 years. I love them.
Cute jean jacket.
Hey...where did you go to high school?
Our boys are almost the same age. We should get them together to play one day since you live so close:)
Thanks for shipping the key chain out so quickly.

I love that picture of you!!! I think I have that same jean jacket LOL!! Actually I HAD a favorite that would never ever been thrown away. It was a pink John Deere tank top that my SIL got me for my birthday 3 yrs ago and it said Country Girl on it. But when I had my horse accident I was wearing it and they took me into the trauma team before I could scream NOOOO they cut it off into shreads :( I also was wearing that jean jacket but luckily they took that off of me before I got to the 2nd hospital LOL!!

Sorry for the late post, I'mbehind a few days LOL!!

oh this is so funny - I don't keep stuff around too long . . . out with the old is my motto . . . I have some old stuff (wedding dress, maternity clothes) but I don't think I have anything old that I still wear.
