My day started today spending way too long wondering why my shampoo wasn’t lathering before I realized I was washing my hair with conditioner.

I feel like that was a sign of the day to come.

Yesterday I put together a 12 Piece 90s Minimalist summer capsule wardrobe that I thoroughly enjoy.

This week the Adidas track pants that I found on Poshmark for $10 arrived and I am thrilled with them. They were just what I was looking for.

I also bought a pair of wide leg joggers because the Canadian site is currently having a 40% off sale, and the US site is having a 30% off with the code MAYSALE.

This is the pair that I found on Poshmark, they are a style that is still sold on the site, and you can see me wearing them yesterday here.

I think that I am in my Adidas track pants stage of life.

Before the fedora became synonymous with mobsters, it was first used as a symbol for the Women’s Rights Movement. Maybe this is why I love a good fedora.

  1. Back in the 80s my mom had a blue jumpsuit with white clouds that she bought because it reminded her of Prince in the video for “Raspberry Beret”. For years we called it The Prince Jumpsuit. That tote looks like the bag version and now I want to call it The Prince Tote.

    Also, I’ve never tried it myself, but I’ve heard a lot of people swear by conditioning first, then shampooing.

    • I absolutely LOVE when clothes and outfits get names after something. Like in the early 00s my friend had a crush on a guy we nicknamed banana pants because he always wore these yellow cords. It sticks to this day.

      The pre conditioning didn’t work out in my favour. Probably because I have greasy hair to begin with so it kind of backfired since I massaged it in really good I don’t think I got it all out 😂
