A Windy Summer Day in April
We seem to have gone straight from winter to summer here in Kansas. Just a few days ago, I plugged in the space heater while giving the dogs a bath. Yesterday and today, the ceiling fans are doing their best to keep us cool. I'm sure that we'll be digging out sweaters and fuzzy slippers again in a few days, too. What a roller coaster ride the weather can be this time of year!
For today's Sunday-go-to-meeting outfit, I chose comfort and ease of movement, since I was helping provide breakfast for the Bible study hour. Everything in this ensemble, except for the purse, was a thrifted item!
Yellow button-down top - Bargain Shop
Floral skirt - Goodwill
Red open-toe slides - Thrift Store
Necklace - yard sale
"Gold" hoop earrings - ??? (I think they have been in my jewelry box since high school!)
Purse of Awesomeness - New York Fashion Exchange
Maybe it was just the angle of the pose, but I don't think this outfit is terribly figure flattering for me. The shirt emphasizes the size of my tummy. But tucking in a shirt never looks right, either, at this weight. Oh, I am really looking forward to the day when these extra pounds are history! At least I hope they will be history one day. If not, I may start wearing muumuus....
