I hope you all had a really great weekend. Mine was very good, and I got nearly everything on my to-do list done and sorted out. The only hitch was when I tried to sort through my closet. I stood there for a good 10 minutes just pawing through the hangers, but it was just too overwhelming. I didn't know where to start!
Since I can't just give up (seriously, this cannot wait any longer), I've opted for another method of attack. I'll go drawer by drawer, and item-type by item-type. The job will take longer this way, but at least it'll get done! I started by creating a space in a drawer just for my tights alongside my underthings, and probably threw out two dozen holey pairs of socks.
I also went through all my prairie skirts, of which I have at least ten. I'm not quite certain how many exactly, I stopped counting. I almost have more than I can justify having, certainly more than I can wear. But I love them all so much! The whole point of this endeavor is to take a chunk out of my wardrobe though, even if it is a bit painful. I have to remind myself: these are just things, things I don't need.
I'm pretty sure my bangs need a trim now. I'm rather vague on when exactly they reach the point of needing it. They were in my eyes from the get-go so I can't really use that as a method of measurement. It'd be easier if they stopped trying to part all the time. My hair has always parted naturally and cleanly right down the middle, and I've worn it like that for years, but now my bangs are having a hard time getting with the program and leaving that part behind!
Yep, even my coffee mugs are green. I'm holding The Cry of the Go-Away Bird by Andrea Ames. I actually discovered her long ago via her own style blog! She's been writing over at A Cat of Impossible Colour for several years. She has great taste in vintage dresses (pretties from the 50's in particular) and I highly suggest checking out her blog.
I'm heading straight to my grandparents' place after work for dinner this evening, which I am very much looking forward to. I hope you all have a lovely Monday and a great start to the week! Cheers!
