30 wears? Seriously!? How about 300+ wears?
I’ve had these shorts and thongs/flip flops since I was 18. I’ve worn them regularly every summer for the last 13 years. C’mon mates – let’s try a little harder than 30 wears for our clothes, yeah? 😜
What am I wearing? I’m uncharacteristically wearing nothing second-hand, ethical or zero waste. But I do get brownie points because it’s all far beyond 200 wears. Top-Bottom: @baileynelson prescription sunglasses – 3yrs (acetate aka more plastic), @ascolour tank – 3yrs (some aspects of their supply chain are ethical), @bondsaus underwear – 2yrs, @dickiespants cut into shorts – 13yrs, giselle thongs – 13yrs, @obusclothing bag – 4yrs. This post is most certainly not sponsored. When these clothes do eventually die, I’m replacing with second-hand or supporting companies that scrutinise every aspect of their supply chain and don’t settle for a small splash of green washing (@etiko_fairtrade will be my first stop 💚).
Proper workwear never dies. These @dickies shorts were once full length pants. After a couple of wears, I got hair bleach on the thigh. Being a full-time student forced me to be thrifty rather than wasteful, so I turned them into shorts. The length (or lack of) was determined by the highest splotch of bleach stain. They’re much shorter than I would have preferred, but I’ll rock them all the same.
Photo gallery is a homage to @paris_to_go’s impressive capsule wardrobe. She sure knows how to make the most of her clothes. Donning short shorts and thongs, I tried to do stretchy poses inspired by the legendary @demilardner but I ended up looking like I’m holding in a fart. 😜 Nobody rocks short shorts and thongs quite like Demi 💚
