Hello my friends!
I can’t believe that it has almost been a week since I wore this cozy outfit! But for me, it is a good thing to see the time fly by in such pleasant way. Truly this has been a delightful week. Perhaps it is from the musing over the glorious entrance of Spring into our lives. Perhaps it is to account for the fact that we began our week with a delightful celebration for Saint Patrick’s Day at our beloved Church. Or it could be the funny thing of finding a new purpose for the time I spend every day. Perhaps it is all of that and more, all rolled into one.
It has been just about forever since I donned this green cloak. I felt like I was embracing an old friend when I put this on in haste last week. Yes! Like meeting an old friend and saying howdy-do all in a throw on, adjustment, and snapping up. And who could ask for a more attractive color green? T’would be an Irishwoman for sure!
The poor Church goers within the Ohio Valley have been suffering from an everlasting weather phenomenon, namely, a storm blows in every Sunday. Every. Sunday. People. Sooo, we had quite the time trying to photograph this post! My hair uncurled itself and whipped around the top of my head as if there was a mini tornado (so glad that weather has not presented itself yet! Goodness!). This awkward event left Charlotte and I in constant giggle mode, which is alway helpful when you say cheese for the camera! Oh dear! I am having too much fun with recording my thoughts right now! 🙂
This outfit is a collection of thrifted finds – picked up by yours truly – across the span of some odd number of years. All, except for the lovely dolly pink turtle neck. I found this darling at our local GoodWill, which to you sounds normal, however, it is no small thing to find a perfectly untouched sweater in a second hand store. Normally it would usually look like a piled mess, with some worn-out elbows, and a stain to add finesse. Let me blurt out a resounding, “Fail!”. But this dolly pink sweater made the bag.
