You Can Lead a Horse to Water

On our way back from Nerja Tuesday, we stopped at Plaza Mayor, a shopping mall about 15 minutes from Fuengirola. The goal: Get San Geraldo a new pair of jeans. Success! He bought two pairs! It was an outlet store with multiple brands. Levi's were reduced from 99€ to 89€; so he bought two pairs of Lee Jeans for the price of one pair of Levis.

AT PLAZA MAYOR.

I can't show you photos of San Geraldo modeling the latest royal fashions. But, I can show you some of his acquisitions. I didn't come home empty handed.... er... footed, either. Papa got a new pair of shoes.

THE BOTTOM PAIR ARE WHAT HE'S BEEN DRAGGING AROUND IN.
(ALL THAT EXTRA DENIM GETS PULLED AROUND BACK AND HIDDEN UNDER HIS BIG SHIRTS.)
FOUR NEW POLOS, TOO.
HE'LL HAVE TO SAY GOOD-BYE TO THAT PURPLE ONE.
LINDA AND I WENT SHOPPING IN TOWN SATURDAY AND I BOUGHT HIM SOME T-SHIRTS.
THE OLD BROWN T-SHIRT MAKES A GREAT PAJAMA TOP... OR BLANKET.
MY NEW SHOES: I THOUGHT I'D GET SOMETHING UNDERSTATED...
... TO MATCH THE LIVING ROOM WALLS.

Below is what I sang in my head as we went shopping with San Geraldo.
(I sound exactly like Earl Thomas... in my head.)

  1. Get down! Good to hear that SG didn't have to wait till the next NYC visit......Lee Jeans, boot cut, were my favourite for years!! The only ones that fit skinny me at the time!
    Look at that difference in shirt size! Great dusters/pj's.
    Now those runners/shoes....very European I must say! They look very comfortable and light weight. And to think I do need a new pair myself......hm-m-m. thanks for the idea you 'trend-setter'!

      I've never in my life owned a pair of Lee Jeans. I may have to try them.

      My favorite shoes in that style are usually made by Puma. There's actually a particular pair I want, but I haven't yet found them in my size (except online).

  2. When we met SG last year I really didn't think he was that big... but those shirts (and pants) must have been falling off of him in the last few weeks! Love your new shoes.... maybe it's time I got some ;-)

      Yes, SG's clothes have been falling off him. It's good to see the change!

  3. The T-shirts show the change the most.

      They sure do. The others are not just wide, but they hang down to mid-thigh!

      Thanks. And, yes, I could watch Earl Thomas get into gear any time (and sing, too).

      All sorts I suppose... (And that's not the sweets... well, on second thought.) I love my "Equipo," but I remember that you didn't like yours.

    2. I would like mine if I lost 15lb.

    3. Spo:
      Another plus: I've always been told if you lose weight your "equipo" will look bigger.

  7. I think San Geraldo will be able to spot you a mile away in those new shoes!

      Obviously, the purple is reflective. The yellow GLOWS in the dark!

      Next on my list: Sexy black, red, and silver Pumas. They don't have my size in the stores I've checked. So I'm going to order them online. Should I order two pairs?
