It’s the Time of the Season

… for allergies and khakis. I’ve had both since I was a kid.

I have been stopped in my tracks these last weeks by one of the worst allergy attacks I’ve had in a long while. So forgive the randomness that I will spout, I’m working through a haze, headache and malaise. As much as I’d like to crawl back into bed, things must get done. Like errands tat take me to Target.

Style bloggers have a tendency to fetishize. Maybe all people do, but it is very pronounced on the web. We rhapsodize about the perfect everything. And, more often than not, that perfect something costs an arm and a leg. Which is why I’m glad that I managed to drag myself through Target. Design plays an important part in our lives, and affordable design is a wonderful thing. Especially, in my opinion, when it comes to clothing and USD$17 khakis.

Are they perfect? No. They are made in Vietnam. There is no extra material to allow for alterations. There is no French fly. But, they are stitched with cotton thread, they are 100% cotton, they come in several shades and … they fit nicely.

Do your casual wardrobe a favour this spring, blow your flip-flop budget and pick up a pair or two of Merona Vintage Khakis. (Thanks to JW for the tip!)
