Taking your clothes on a Journey

I think that it’s a right of passage when you wear a pair of jeans so much that it falls apart. Tiny holes in my clothes, the extra-worn-in feel of an old t-shirt. These little things, no matter how small or ugly, represent a part of my life and the things I’ve done.

I get sentimental about clothing items, because wearing them is like wearing an emotion- all over again.

This year, I’m challenging myself to break-in and break down everything I own.My trusty denims and cotton t-shirts are going to go on an adventure. It’s going to be a year of unlimited journeys, expanding my horizons, and experiencing everything for what it’s worth.
