While I'm here, I'm squeezing in some fun. First, an outfit-post because... why not?! I can never get enough of doing these. They bring me joy.
Second, I reviewed my entire wardrobe -- and tried on dozens of items -- to assemble two outfits for a trip I'm taking to visit Jen in Atlanta. Jen is my dearest of friends. For years, she has supported and encouraged me. We e-mail, we Facebook, we even chat on the phone. In two weeks, I'll meet Jen for the first time in person and say hi to her hubby and cute daughter. Jen is offering to hold my hand while presenting as female so that door is swinging wide open. :-)
The outfit below is an ensemble of thrift-store pieces, each of which cost less than $10. That includes the red shoes which are the centerpiece of the outfit. I swooned when I saw them.
I hope this collection demonstrates that a whole can be greater than its parts.
