This is an extra special Friday! Today, the snow is gone, the sun is shining and I have this afternoon off to spend the afternoon with my city-girl whom I haven't seen in such a long time! So, it'll beValue Village and dinner with my daughter Molly. (We both have a "free item up to $10" coupon that's itching to be used!)
I dress for the office every day; and I dress for church. But I seldom get a chance to do what I call "casual dressy". So, what to wear today?
I'll think I'll wear this pretty ruffled sweater (from Frenchies) with my dark blue jeans. I'm a busty girl, so I sometimes sew up my cardigans like this one. It's my current favorite!
And I'll wear my beautiful mauve faux pearls with the rhinestone clasp (Value Village) and my amethest earrings (gift from my daughter).
I've been using my new purse this week (Frenchies); it's roomy and comfy to carry. And I'll be sure to pack my camera.
It's not cold enough for a winter coat; and I don't want to wear anything bulky. So, I think I'll dig out my jean jacket -- the one with the rabbit fur trim (The Daisy). I'm sure that rabbit died of natural causes! (I didn't ask.) *

And I always like to wear a broach. I have a beautiful one that a very lovely lady (Denise Johnson) made for me years ago to say thank you for bringing her food and company every now and then after her 2nd baby was born. (I was "paying it forward" because we all know that 2 children is 5 x as much work as 1 child!) She used old watch parts, vintage earrings and, for me, a fish (because she knew I was a Christian). It's one of my favorites and is perfect, I think, for this jacket!*
And on my feet, my new bright red Naot shoes. I've been wearing them on and off for the past 2 weeks. They're so comfortable; and that splash of red on my feet really makes me feel "UP".
I'm really excited to spend the afternoon with Molly! She's one of my favorite people to thrift shop with. I'll fill you in on the details later this week.
Happy Friday everyone!

What a great day you have planned. You will be looking very chic too. I agree with being out when the sun is too. However spring is the only time I ever feel the urge to clean house, haha.

Our sun is hidin' behind the showery clouds but it's still shinnin' up there somewhere.
