Please forgive me, as this is one of those days I warned you about when my mind is so spent I'm having trouble typing coherent sentences. I spent the afternoon painting my new studio space and getting as much paint on me as I did the walls. Tomorrow is another full day of painting but I do hope to get a few things listed in the Etsy shop before I dive back into the paint can.
In the process of getting ready for the move I've been going through my closet and trying to decide what to keep and what to get rid of. My goal is to get rid of anything I haven't worn in the past year and keep pieces that will be versatile, especially in the upcoming months of transitional weather. As my "keep" pile grew and grew, I noticed it seemed to have a lot of plaid pieces in it. Among the pile was this 50s cotton plaid skirt and an H&M shirt dress. I love these pieces because they can stay in my closet all year round.
After putting these outfits together I'm thinking that plum is going to be a big color for me this fall. Also, can I mention how completely strange it felt to put on a pair of tights?!
