Thrift Style Thursday: Denim Rebel

Note: I didn't intend to turn this post into a giant Game of Thrones metaphor for Canada and fashion, but I liked where it was going, so I kept it. Sorry in advance for any groans.

I've been saving these for this 'denim rebel' TST. After all, denim on denim is the Canadian tuxedo. I feel a personal connection with the theme - and what kind of citizen of the 'true north strong and free' would I be if I didn't? 

Since denim on denim reminds everyone of Bryan Adams in the 80s (is there anything more Canadian?), it's safe to admit that, sometimes, we Northerners dress like a bunch of unfashioned Wildlings. Though, in the realm of hickster we are a little more Winterfell and a little less White Walker. We don't need pure denim to repel the throes of terribly cold Canadian summers (even though we do all live in igloos with the North King and own Dire Wolves and listen to Jan Arden and Stompin' Tom Connors), chambray will suit our Northern dispositions until the long months of Winter come again - even Jon Snow can't keep that from happening.

In fact, upon further reflection, these pants are a little bit like Jon Snow. They are the love child of poly-cotton and denim. They promise to protect you until the cold winds of winter come. They would probably also break their vows to the Knight's Watch for a feisty ginger. They're all rebelious and all style. And while they don't have sultry brown eyes and a heroic disposition, they do have pleats, pockets, and a whole lotta pizazz. 

And, unlike Jon Snow, you either love them or you hate them (in this way they are more like Sansa Stark, I suppose, or Lord Baelysh), they were a great summer addition to my closet for a mere $3 on half price day at Bibles for Missions.

  1. Your pants are awesome!! They look so comfy!

  2. Haha, the Canadian tuxedo? I love it! Great look!

    1. It's totally a thing. We prance around in 80s denim looking a little too much like Kevin Bacon in Footloose. I jest, of course. But we do love our denim jeans and jackets! :)

  3. Chambray...pants?!?!? I had no idea they were even a thing!!! They look so great on you!

    1. Thanks, Justine! I had no idea they were a thing either ... but I guess when Tommy Hilfiger says they are a thing we just have to roll with it. :)

  4. Ahhhhhh Brittany I love everything about this post!! Look at you with your sassy poses in your sassy pants! And the Game of Thrones reference is so hilarious!! I loooove the chambray pants. I've been seeing them everywhere but I haven't had the courage to try them, but now I might have to! Awesome post! :)
