This outfit came about from me cleaning out my closet. Hubby helped sooooo much. I took EVERYTHING out and tried each thing on. We started on Thursday night and finished on Sunday night. By Sunday, all of my clothes were hanging in the living room! BUT it was so worth it, I felt like I had new clothes after it was all over. Hubby weighed in on if things should stay or go. At first, I wasn't sure how honest he would be, but he surprised me by pointing out things I hadn't noticed (fading, puckering, etc.) He added new bars for hanging clothes in various heights. Then we put the keepers all back in. I put them in order by color and sleeve length (which I've done since a teenager).
This skirt was one of the last things I tried on. I happened to glance over at the Chevron blouse hanging with ALL my blouses across the living room. I though, "Hmm, that just might work." I tried it on (Saturday night) and wore it to church Sunday morning. I felt long and lean in this outfit. :o)
On an unrelated note...I saw a comment on one of my older posts thanking me for commenting on their blog. Well, I did comment on a blog or two that I don't regularly follow, so I thought I'd check and see if it was one of those. After clicking on the user name, I was sent to a trashy looking blog from what little I saw as I quickly closed that page! Now I'm really hoping I don't get questionable adds popping up from that mishap. Ugh! Has anyone else run into this? So, I marked the comment as Spam and called it done (I hope).
