Wardrobe SwitchNot

It's cold now. I haven't gotten around to making the wardrobe switch yet, but I don't want to be shivering either, so I buried my hand in a bag and was delighted to pull out my live-in-it outfit. When Zoomer and I met for the first time, she said, "I knew I'd see that outfit." Of course she did. She and I had been emailing photos for several years, and she probably didn't know, or would have believed, I even owned any other clothes. In fact, she insisted on seeing the interior of my closet while she was here. [She might call me on that exercise of literary license, so the full truth was about her interest in seeing what styles and colors I am in my daily life.]

I share with you my live-in-it outfit -- in what may be its final season -- because it's certainly seen finer (and many) days.

My Autumn & Winter Me

Yes, I always buy shoes to match the flooring. They're homemakers' camouflage, sold in many stores online, if you've a mind to have a pair.

Son3 also built a fire for me. When Charles got home, he pondered the concept of wasted wood and began throwing open windows. Okay, okay, 82º is a bit toasty, but who knew the afternoon sun was going to dash the chill? Not this comfy frog. ºÜº

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. ~Galatians 2:20

I think we all have our favorite "comfy outfit". Isn't it sad when those old favorites finally give up the ghost and we have to throw them away? Although yours look like they still have quite a bit of life left in them...enjoy!

I love my old clothes!!! They feel so nice, and some of my stuff I've had for years. One item I had years ago was a cotton O.D. green sweater, and I wore it till it had big, gaping holes everywhere. I finally had to get rid of it, but it was great when I had it.
Hope you have a great day!

Girls, I still have a dress my sister bought me when I was in 7th grade. Of course, now the whole dress, a shift, might fit my right leg as a legging, but I can't part with it. Such love in that gift from one 3 years my senior, working a part time job. Ü

Morgan, I can't decide if your sweater tale is hilarious or pathetic. Very sweet. Last year I finally threw away the denim-blue, chenille sweater my brother dragged out of a dumpster for me, when he was doing maintenance at an apartment complex. Who knows how long it had lived before it became mine, but I wore it until it was so mangy that you could see through it, and I had to wear an under blouse beneath it. When it began springing holes, I gave it up. Ü
