Digging Deep

Day #4: The No-Shopping Challenge

 
I like my money right where I can see it... hanging in my closet

BREAKING NEWS: COLD FRONT BLOWS THROUGH TEXAS!

YES!....in the 70s today!  Feels like fall!

 
By now, you are looking at these pictures and wondering, DOES THIS WOMAN HAVE LEGS! I do have skirts and just a very few dresses; but, I honestly prefer trousers and jeans. I will, however, reach for a skirt at least once next week.



Today, I dug really deep into the closet. I wanted to look for something I had not even thought of in a while.  The best part of this challenge has been looking over pieces that had been out of sight and out of mind.   Here's what I found….a short sleeved, cardigan with an antique print that is very different, but somehow, I loved from the start. The sleeves are gathered for a special detail. This is another Macy’s Red Apple Sale item which began at $50 and after coupons, became $11!! (I do remember that story, because I was so excited with the purchase.) I paired it with some vintage jewelry that I don’t believe I have worn in over a year.

The best part….opening the front door. A cold wind was actually blowing! So, I went back for a black, Esprit trench coat! By this time last year, I had worn this coat almost every day. Today is the first time in 2010.

Cool breezes make me think of sweaters…so, today’s WISH LIST features some wonderful sweaters that I would love to add to the closet!  One of my new blogging friends asked why I don't look at Nordstrom's so I did...this would be a very dangerous store for me to spend time in right now!  But, oh how I would love to.........



The Wish List

 
I would wear this one just as shown...T and jeans...I love the buttons...

Tired of the classroom shot already!

  1. I really like this. Like you, I tend to gravitate towards trousers and jeans, so keeping my blog has pushed me a bit in the skirt direction. How did this beautiful, bargain sweater get pushed to the back?
