Today is all about some blind optimism. Hubs lost his part time job. It's been a long time coming (him working in an overstaffed store). He's been in the works of a job-change for nearly a month now, so hopefully this will give us the push we need to start making some good changes. But it also means we have no income right this minute. But the great thing is that I have a blog that I can use to keep me pumped up. Things I'm optimistically planning for: Remix challenges (Check out this weekend's post for more info if you want to play along!), Sew Sunday (I have available supplies and finally some time!), DIY projects, and finally digging into my stockpiled thrifted goodies. I have so much new stuff that's unworn!
As evidenced by today. I picked up this top - sometime. I'm always on the lookout for funky cotton tops and this one definitely fit the bill. It goes against every thing I ever said about fashion. It's got poof sleeves, a high neckline, stripes (I keep saying I have too many!), and I'm even pairing red and purple thanks to D's suggestion of these pumps. I actually really love the play of all these pieces together.
I added my mom's amethyst ring to help add some more purple. I got this ring from her awhile back but it's yet to be sized. So I cheated by using the band-aid method to size it down for my tiny fingers. One day I hope to have the stones reset or at least get the ring properly resized.
