The week has been cold and blustery, and I'm still working my way through the wardrobe trying to figure out what goes well together. I bought quite a few pieces at the end of last season, so for many of these items it is a first wear. I'm sure I'll figure it all out-by spring.
...working just as well with a pink mohair jacket and silk scarf, as with wool and flannel. If you're thinking, "That's the same outfit just with a different jacket and scarf, you're correct. *Shrug* I have a lot of jackets and scarves.
Except that I don't think I look frumpy at all, and I'm certainly not aiming for irony. What I am doing is wearing what I enjoy. Now get off of my lawn you damn beatniks!
