Well, I am going to try to do what Pat on Back Porch Musings has been showing us for a while.
She picks out her outfits and hangs them on the door, at the ready! (And Pat is very stylish I must say.) Presto, she is ready for the next day. Every time I would see a post where she shared an outfit, I would think to myself...I need to do this!
So Pat, I am going to give your system a whirl. It seems that I just stand in the closet and look to see what to wear whenever I get dressed to go somewhere. Way too much time spent just standing looking at my clothes.
Years ago, when I was a young high school teacher I would put together my outfits before the week started so that I would not be trying to pull out something at the last minute. I did not have much time in the mornings...and it really helped to have my "outfits" hanging and ready.
For this post...I though I would try this practice outfit as I purchased the new cotton cardigan last week...(I am a cardigan girl.) and was wanting to see if its shade of navy blue would match my other navy items.
Starting from the bottom up...
The skirt is a navy Chicos traveler maxi from a few years back. Of course, I am so short that every skirt is a maxi, and I have to hem. I love wearing longer skirts in the summer.
I love scarves. I think my love of scarves started when I lived in France and saw women wear scarves so elegantly. A scarf can be quite the status item in France if it is from a couture designer. Mine are not...but I do have several silk scarves in my collection. I will show you some of my scarves another time.
|A 3/4 sleeve blouse is my favorite. "No iron" is wonderful. Everyone needs at least one fresh crisp white shirt/blouse for spring and summer. It can go from casual with jeans to work with a skirt.|
