Girl Clothes!

It seems like every year during the winter-spring transition season I start to hate my wardrobe. It's not cold enough to wear *real* winter clothes, sweaters, flannel and corduroy, but not warm enough to wear summer clothes yet. So pretty much every year I shop for something new to sort of tide me over. I can't wait to get out of heavy slacks and into dresses! I love the free feel of a summer dress.

I found this one at the local Goodwill. 100% rayon, my size, my color and gently worn. The best part? Six bucks! I guess I can layer it with a sweater or blazer until the heat hits.

Then I went to the opposite end of town and found a broomstick skirt. The browns and tans didn't do a lot for me, but I sure liked the red and gold. I washed it in the sink first thing when I got home. It ran and ran and ran a muddy brown. Here it is drying in its twisted knot.

When I untwisted it I was so pleased to see how much brighter it is.

Now all I need is a warm day. :D

I LOVE flirty skirts and dresses! Good thing they're appropriate for the weather here almost year round.

You will look "dashing" in your new spring wardrobe! I do love a bargin!!!

I thought it was a burl at first glance, at least when it was all twisted up.
