Have you ever been flipping through a fashion magazine and read the advice about mixing and matching pieces from your wardrobe to create new, fun outfits? They will suggest things like pairing that ruffled shirt from two seasons ago with a boyfriend blazer and skinny jeans. It sounds so good and easy. The picture they show is so cute. Then you remember you never bought a ruffle shirt two seasons ago. And skinny jeans are just not your style. I can’t help thinking sometimes that these people would go into shock if they had to shop in my neck of the woods instead New York City. Well, lastnight I was perusing my favorite mags in search of the height of this year’s fall fashion. I noticed the scarves and an idea began to form in the back of my mind. I soon found myself in the bedroom with my favorite khaki skirt, two v-neck t-shirts (one black and one navy blue), a v-neck navy blue ribbed short-sleeved sweater, and a number of scarves I already owned. I’m standing next to the bed looking at this assortment and suddenly a number of different, cute and trendy outfits appeared before my very eyes. One of these was carefully chosen to wear to church service this morning.
Isn’t it cute? I was just giddy with excitement! I even thought that one could exchange the skirt for jeans or trousers. Even more fun outfits! I believe I may have made a fashion breakthrough! I know its completely frivolous, but fashion can sometimes be quite fun!
