"Without frugality none can be rich, and with it very few would be poor." (Samuel Johnson)
Here's one of the beige/tan skirts that will become my summer "uniform"! They've been packed away during the winter, but I brought them out before vacation to enjoy when I returned home.
I'm wearing this one with a stretchy brown top & have added an animal print scarf to cover the cleavage situation....I've found shopping for this style of skirt easy at thrift stores - especially since I can fit into 8's and 10's.
I wore this to meet a friend for coffee this morning. I think I matched the color of my Mocha Heath Latte!
The weather is so changeable! It's difficult to know how to dress. Yesterday it was chilly and very windy. I wore this top (one of several items in the $1 bag - averaging out to less than $.12 an item) to the baby shower I attended. My hands are in the way of the multi-colored belt I wore. It added a little more brightness to the outfit as did the clip-on earrings...
The shell bracelet and earrings were each 50 cents at a thrift store along our vacation route. I've worn both several times already!
This is about the best I could do this morning. The dress I'd planned to wear just didn't do anything for me. (I should have planned it out earlier, but my "head" was somewhere else!)
Thrifted skirt (vintage),
thin navy belt,
lacy white blouse,
and newly thrifted beige shoes.
After church, I will finish packing for vacation. Hope I do a better job of planning than I did for Easter Sunday wear!
I had purchased a strip of cloth at a thrift store a while ago because it reminded me of the month I spent in Burkina Faso, West Africa. I decided to wrap it around my waist and belt it to break up some of the vast amount of orange in the dress. I'm looking a little tropical and don't know if I'll wear it out the front door.
I'm trying to include more elements in my outfit. and this was an attempt! Belt, necklace, wrap, and sleeveless long dress...
I COULD wear this shirt/jacket over the dress...
