|explosion of color and ruffli-girliness|
So, a week or two ago i stumbled across a nice little (big!) surprise - Weesha had included my site on her blogroll! 'This sort of thing' is still pretty new to me, so i got very excited. It seemed like a good excuse to do a little introduction/recommend of Weesha's World here on the blog.

As you know, we spent Halloween at mom's. Turns out mom had been cleaning out her closets, and i bagged a few choice items for myself while helping her bag them up for the Goodwill. I've always had a hankering for pique polo shirts, but never felt 'me' while wearing one. But this blue was so nice, and seemed to blend well with my blue shirtwaist....
I was in a mood to wear my blue shirtwaist dress as more of a skirt, and my new polo shirt bloused over the dress just so. The dress collar even played nice with the shirt. I got another oversized polo from mom in heather grey at the same time, but it's jersey instead of pique. It doesn't drape so much as make random, origami-style shapes. As a result, my hips looked like the Sydney Opera House had crash-landed on them. However, it didn't mind being tucked in, and you'll see the resulting outfit in future.

It's much easier for me to come up with an outfit that feels 'me' in the dressier range of things. So i was very happy to have created a casual look in which i felt so comfortable. And how easy is the formula "skirt + casual tee or polo + belt + snazzy shoes"? Thanks, Mom!!!
