GREEN TRENCH / Homeward Bound Summary




This outfit was what I wore home from my Parent's house. I was refreshed , but sad to leave. The trip gave me a chance to spend time meditating on the important things in life. Family, letting go of regret, staying connected to Creativity. I needed a soul bath, and the country is a perfect place for renewal. I got lots of hugs, and felt the sense of safety I get when sleeping at my parent's. Stress drained away and the city didn't seem so harsh as when I left it ! I can't believe it's been two weeks already!


Trench: Liz , Skirt : Rue 21, Glasses, Wal-mart.






" Good Bye Blue Sky "






My Mom.


Homeward Bound outfit re-cap :













" Welcome Back ! "



RED , WHITE AND BLUE STRIPES / Vintage Top


I "borrowed" this 80's top from my Mom's closet. She made me put it back ! Although I got to wear it first!



I rolled up the sleeves, and stitched them put, but the right one came un-done.
The retro looking glasses came from the "W" place for $5 dollars.

Jeans: Gap.

NEUTRALS AND BOOTS


My favorite clothes season is Fall or Spring. Sweater Weather. Mother Nature gave me a nice ending to spring this weekend. In a few more days it's supposed to  be in the 70's. After the longest Feb. in history, I'm not complaining!



At first , I put on these vintage peep toes, but they didn't seem to work.


Then I tried my old Eastland hikers. Maybe with sox ? But still didn't seem to work. Then I remembered my really tall, black riders hadn't been worn all winter, so I grabbed them instead. I liked the contrast.


They kinda went with the grays in my flower and scarf. 


I layered a cream skirt, a cotton slip-dress over a pale green T, and one of my fav. sweaters.
Done !


Dark green tights by Land's End , Scarf by Ann Taylor, thrifted.



I felt very "Me" in this look.


I used to wear these boots to work almost daily when I first got them. They are very worn. Then I found a similar , shorter pair that I've worn for the past 2 yrs. I likes me boots !!!
Today, the sun is Shinin' and I'm heading out to the Library then for a walk. See Ya !

FUR , VINTAGE, AND LACE






It all started with this vest . ONLY 2 DOLLARS at Rue 21 !

Mother Nature gave me one more cool day to wear this clearanced faux-fur vest. I was gonna do the hippy look, but that seemed too obvious . So, I threw it over a vintagy outfit instead. It got to walk with me in the sun for a brief moment, only to be shunned into the back of the closet til next year. I would have never paid full price for it, as trends go out so fast, but for Two dollars, it was worth it !




After helping my Hubby get out the ladder for gutter cleaning , I booted the vest.



I felt so Girlie! I was having major exposure problems that day , which probably started with my bath experience. As those who keep up with me know, I hate house work, with a capitol H ! I got the idea to Mop my entire bathroom from ceiling to walls to floor. Sounded so much more time efficient. The only problem was, I put the mop in a plastic bag when I was finished, and felt so clever ! I left it in the tub and forgot all about it. The next day, half asleep, I ran my bath, slid open the door, sat down in a tub full of yummy, bubbly Mop water. Yep. Mop water. The mop was still in there beneath the bubbles. I removed said mop, and just kept on bathing. I can be gross, but I rationalized it as clean mop water !
