minnesota's version of minimalism

Minimalism is in. And to be honest, I’m not a huge fan. Anyone that knows me, knows that causal and/or simplistic dressing is not my forte. So, it may come as a surprise that this past week I had a date with a skateboarder. Yes, even I was quite shocked. I will admit that the night I met him I was dressed down.... well, for me..... I had a full length black t-shirt dress (I believe the t-shirt material negates the full length), platform heels, and some semi-gothic weapon jewelry on. He was a wonderful reminder of how much I love the whole skater boy thing. Throw on some Vans, a t-shirt, jeans, and grab your skateboard..... ok, that’s not true. Throw on some Vans, a t-shirt, jeans, and go watch some cute boys skateboard? Still not quite right. Throw on some Vans, a t-shirt, jeans, and grab a beer on a patio with friends. That’s more like it. Even better, buy your ticket to Vans Off the Wall Warped Tour. Beer, live music, skateboarders, and the great outdoors. It is still a few months away, but how can you not already be excited!?!? Anyway, here is my (temporarily forgotten) version of minimalism:

1.  t-shirt, american apparel, $22

2.  jeans, gap, $69.50 (I think bootcut looks best; skinny jeans make me feel like a 13 year old boy walking home from school...)

3.  shoes, vans, $40-$42
