Muddin’: driving whatever you got outside, through deceivingly deep, long pits of mud and hopefully not getting stuck.
But wait… What do you wear!?!?
When you walk in your closet in the morning and great all the gorgeousness you have hanging up, it’s hard to say “Why Hello cute shirt, its time to get caked in rather stinky mud, then walk around the mountains in it and sit on whatever I can find with the hopes that you wont tear . After that, your destined for the hot wash on the “seriously scrub this” cycle ..and you still better look cute! ”
If clothes could faint..they would have.
BUT there is hope. You need a fabulous shirt that can take on anything? The answer is Fox Racing. I know, they can be a little pricey, but I live in the sale section in stores and online (like at FoxHead.com) where a great top can cost 15-20 bucks and its worth every penny. I have three fox shirts and have put them all through clothes worst nightmares and they still look great. One of these shirts is even four years old and looks like I just bought it. (despite the pain I put it through)
I have covered these shirts in mud, I’ve taken them dirt biking, shooting, hiking, climbing , I even crashed a mountain bike in them.. I got injured…my shirt did not. Fox is so much more then a cute trendy line, they really hold up.
For my fashion adventure, I chose a black tank (because black goes with everything, even mud.) and some fabulous jeans I got from forever 21.
I am so in love with Forever21, and since the nearest one is a two hour drive from my house, I live on their website. At first, I was nervous ordering jeans online, but there’s fit exactly like they say they will. (and they have a great return policy just in case) You can get jeans off their site for as low as 7 dollars and you’ll get compliments on them like they cost you 70.
At first I grabbed my Forever 21 jeans because if I did ruin them, they are not expensive. Turns out they are pretty tough. I’m actually wearing them today and they look like I just bought them. My jeans got soaked (and for those who have never had the pleasure of wet jeans, they can stretch.. a lot, so I was afraid they’d never fit again) When the mud dried, I scraped off the big pieces with a rock, and carried on. I was up and down, sitting in everything from gravel to grass, and climbing trees, and after a round in the washer; the jeans still look great, still fit great, and are ready to go again!
But what about shoes? Well, this fashion adventure called for nothing but a good pedicure. Sometimes, barefoot can be as cute as even the most fab pair of heels you got.
So that’s it, a down to earth fashion adventure, that put some clothes to the test. Got any mud worthy finds to share? I’d love to hear about it!!
