Challenge #6 Outfit #19

1 Comment

A playdate at a local bouncy castle place was on the agenda for yesterday so I knew I had to be casual & comfortable.

A simple outfit that I thought worked well. I wore a shawl/cape thing instead of a coat. At the bouncy castle place I kept it on quite a bit because I was really cold. That’s when a little girl came up to me & said I looked like a witch. Nice! Ah well, hopefully I was a good-looking, stylish witch.

Outfit #19

Sweater: Ross
Jeans: Ross
Boots: Ross

It’s an ode to Ross day!

I’d like to take a moment to talk about boots. A couple of years ago, I set out on a hunt for a pair of black boots that would be my “go to” boots. They needed to be stylish & comfortable. I spent more than I should on several different pairs of boots – mostly ordered online. Some of them I still have & enjoy wearing, but none of them were exactly what I wanted. Then I found this pair of boots in Ross for less than $25 & they were nearly perfect. I told myself that if I ever found them again, I’d buy another pair & more than a year later, in a different State at a different Ross, I found them again & bought them. I love them that much! They aren’t perfect, but they’re close.

I’ve become much more focused in what I buy lately. I used to buy pretty much anything if it was on sale, but now I am thinking about basics that I want to find & I am intentional in looking for them. I’ll still look for the best deal, but wearablity is so much more important than having lots of things in my closet that I can’t or don’t want to wear.

  1. Regarding witches. Have you noticed that in modern pop culture witches are always portrayed as super hot women? So maybe the girl thought she was paying you a compliment. And if not, you can still turn her to stone.
