I found out too late that yesterday was Maxi day at Every Body, Every Wear. I was too late to join in on the day, but I was inspired to wear a maxi dress today. I love the colour & pattern of this dress & the denim jacket keeps it from feeling too dressy. I started out wearing sandals, but quickly changed into boots. There will be time enough for sandals when it’s not so cold.
Speaking of denim jackets, I am on the hunt for the “perfect” denim jacket. I’ve had a lot of denim jackets in my life, but they’ve all been & gone. I found the one I’m wearing today at a thrift store & it’s ok, but it’s very stiff & not exactly what I’m looking for. I’m really working hard to not give in to the compulsive shopper in me & buy things just because they are on sale, or because I happen to like the look of something. I know that I can use shopping as a drug because it makes me feel good. Anyway, I’m trying to be more selective in what I buy – thinking about things that will add value to my wardrobe, things that will last & wait if I have to to get them. I’m learning!
