Last week we finally hit summer heat (for a day or two) here in the Midwest. Since we had outside plans, and there were lots of other moms to see, something cool, comfortable and at least moderately cute was needed. While the hat felt like I just posed with it for the pictures, I did really wear it for some sun protection on our warm day. This shirt is one I might usually keep for "good" occasions, as it is a light woven silk, but since it was thrifted and such a good deal, I've just been wearing it for everyday activities. It's washed up just fine. Maybe there's a lesson there? Don't save the "good" stuff only for special occasions (at least the non-dry-clean-only items)...
PS This entire week, Monday through Saturday, I'm at a really special class to help me improve my volunteer ministry, so we shall see what gets posted, if anything. I must say, though, having my blogged outfits to look back on has sure made it easier to pick out 6 different outfits!! I plan to copycat myself over and over again all week...
