My basic idea was to wear my long, wonderfully flowy, floral skirt. And maybe my green cardigan and heels.
It was lucky I had this basic idea, too, because I had no time to experiment when the time to get dressed finally came around. I had spent all morning cleaning and organizing the house . . which was an interesting outfit in itself. Me, walking around in torn jeans (note: if you buy jeans from goodwill, try to refrain from pulling them up by the belt loops. I’ve ripped several jeans doing that), a stained T-shirt, red XXL sweater, and a orange handkerchief covering my hair. Yup. It was a sight to see. But it’s my comfy, it-doesn’t-matter-if-I-crawl-in-a-drain-pipe-wearing-this outfit. So it was all good, at the time.
But I had to change before the guests arrived for Thanksgiving dinner, so I ran to my room to get ready.
The first thing I did . . . was brush my hair. (Haha, betcha didn’t see that one coming, huh?) Then I pulled on my skirt and a green-brown v-neck. Eh, it was okay. I was freezing without my XXL sweater, though, so I put on the cardigan. At first, it didn’t seem to match the rest of the outfit, but I think I stared at it for so long that it grew on me. Then again, I guess anything will grow on you when you’re rushing.
|Amazing. The room is clean!|
I have to say something: I love cardigans. I just do. Though, this particular one was from Target, not a thrift store. I was in a 60s musical and all us girls had to buy the same sweater. Actually, I think that cardigan is the most expensive article my closet possesses.
To end the look, I attempted to fluff my hair, which didn’t work, so I pinned the side of it up with a bobby pin, slipped on my brown heels, and was ready. If I didn’t have to brush my hair at first, it probably would’ve taken me about two minutes. That has to be a record.
On a random note: I’ve started sketching outfit designs. Here’s one of my thanksgiving ensemble that I started this morning but couldn’t finish because I didn’t have the right colors. What do you think?
