A Week’s Worth of Undies

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I’ve been meaning to post that for over a year. No need to worry about it, if you don’t use Bloglovin, but to claim the blog as my own I have to post it. I’m not even exactly sure I fully understand Bloglovin. I think it might just be another way to subscribe to blogs, like google reader.

Anyway, this post is really to share with you an AWESOME link I found earlier today.  Seriously, I’m very excited about this. Thanks to flickr contact Carolyn_Sewell, I found out about Jessi Arington and her Week’s Worth of Undies project. The concept is this, in Jessi’s own words:

“It seemed simple enough… I’ll go on a trip, and the only thing I’ll pack in a tiny suitcase is the underwear I’ll need. All other clothing will be procured at thrift stores once I arrive at my destination. I’ll wear it, photograph it and have a grand ole time with it, but then I’ve got to give it away, returning home with only my original undies.”

You can read the initial post here, and subsequent posts share photographs of the outfits, and to be honest, I haven’t even gotten through them yet. I hope to them savor them after this post.  In the meantime, I wanted to share this post because I think it is a perfectly fun idea for a road trip. Only, I’m not so sure about having to give away the new treasures clothing that I just found. I might change my mind after completing the series, but right now I’m thinking “what if I just donate an item from my own closet, for every new item I decide to keep?”
