I am having a time with letting go ! I love to layer. It's a bit cooler now which may let me get in some of my favorite Spring Jackets / Coats / Sweaters before the window of opportunity closes. If you live in the mid-west as in Cincinnati , you know how it goes : Cold , Cold , Cold , Warm , Cold , Cold , HOT !
My inspiration : Crystal Wood !
Thanks Crystal. She has an amazing style, and can put a hurting on a Maxi !
I added a thrited silk / rayon skirt from The Limited , ( I find so many of these ! Yah! )
I chose a wide belt for balance.

Plus of course , a hat ! I love hats, though my Mom keeps telling me they will make me bald.

Then, my second choice was booted off last night! I give up !
My love of hats DID NOT start in High School !
We were called " THE MARCHING BLOODY Q-TIPS" !
I quickly joined the Drum Corp. !
Unfortunately the Xylophone weighed a ton , and our school was too cheap to buy wheels.
It was strapped to my back like a pack mule !
Ah , memory lane ! Here I'm sporting the "preppy" look that was in during the early 80's.
Khaki's , Izod button - down shirt and Loafers with no socks !
Holy Crap ! will ya check out the girls ?
Duct Tape, please !
