Between the weather changes and my weight loss, I am having fun experimenting with my outfits. My old clothes that I have been keeping in my closet “in case they ever fit again” are actually starting to FIT! They are dusty and not as stylish as they were 100 years ago, but I am enjoying it anyway.
This past week I only went out a couple of times. Once to run errands for the day and another to the grocery store. Not the excitement of a New York socialite, but this countryfied city girl is happy with her simple life.
This first look was just a grocery store day. I try to look kind of nice so I don’t end up on the people of Walmart website. It’s a fear I have…..finding myself there one day. I also have a fear of heights, but that doesn’t really apply to my outfits. Unless I’m going bungee jumping, in which case I don’t think my modesty would be first in my thoughts. Death trumps skirts.
I love to mix patterns, so on this day I wore a pink swirly top with a striped skirt. The black vest ties it all together. I had on a long silver necklace, but I took the picture before I put it on. But a long necklace will elongate your body. It’s all about creating the illusion of slimness.
In these next pictures, my errand day, I wore a denim skirt that I love, but it kept falling off all day, so it will probably be my last time to wear it. It’s a happy/sad thing to lose your favorite pieces.
This is a brown t-shirt and vest. I’ve had the vest for-ever and it’s just fitting me again after so long….just in time for fall!
But of course, it’s really all about the pearls. They distract from the imperfections everywhere else. And be sure to play with your accessories. The necklace didn’t look right just hanging there, so I tucked it under the back of the collar and it improved it 100%.
I hope you’re enjoying wearing some of your fall clothes. Play with your things and see if you can find a new way to wear something old.
