I was going to wear my old, old formula of shorts, tee, and cardigan today. And just for good measure, I was going to wear some comfort sandals that are several years old, too. A throwback to my pre-YLF dressing.
Well, it's not as if my pre-YLF self was much different than my current self. But I did decide to wear a new cardi and current shoes to update the shorts look. The cardigan is a birthday present I bought myself with gift money from my parents. Pre-YLF I would have worn a Land's End or Eddie Bauer or J.Jill smooth-knit classic cardigan, in a soft color. Not much different from now, but I do try to add current cuts and silhouettes, as much as I can.
I have to clean out my sewing room, to prepare for delivery of new sewing
furniture this week! I have been procrastinating all day.
The outfit (worn for a day off, and the important work of procrastination):
Dark brown shorts (Eddie Bauer); not seen--cream tee with neutral petal-design applique on front (Eddie Bauer); taupe and cream chunky handknit cardi with taupe and cream buttons (Amy Brill), gray leather sneakers (Josef Seibel, Caspian); taupe-gray shoulder bag (Aunts & Uncles); concentric-ring earrings in brass and silver (Marjorie Baer); purple-framed specs.
Sometimes I hang on to things for so long that they seem to come back in style. I get confused as to what's in and what's out. How about you?
Thoughts and suggestions welcome!
