Yesterday I met a friend for lunch/coffee/shopping in the Bishop Arts district here in Dallas. It was POURING when I left the house, hence the sneakers, but let up pretty quickly, so I was sort of disappointed I didn’t wear my new boots. I was going to wear them anyway, but I forgot they have some suede on them, so I didn’t feel comfortable wearing them in the rain. Of course, I probably should treat them, but I never do treat my shoes…
Anyway, I sort of just “threw” this outfit together from some things in my closet I don’t wear very often, and because I was getting ready in a hurry I didn’t think too much about it, actually, and I ended up being quite happy with my outfit. (IF I’d had time to think more about it I probably would have changed a million times, and ended up wearing something completely different) Ah…the bane of my sartorial existence: over-thinking.
Since I won’t be buying anything new for a while (that is my goal, but I’m not making any rules, or promises), I will be trying to “resurrect” some things I’ve had for a while that I don’t wear, but keep around. Sort of making them feel new again, if you will. I’m hoping that will keep me satisfied for some time; I do still have a lot of things that I don’t wear very often…
Enough of that for now – if you’re reading this and you celebrate, I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas. See you on the flip side!
