cute as a bug's ear

 saturday i woke up mad as a sprayed cockroach. sometimes that just happens. but i've been working on my anger management issues(which is weird in itself because i have a great life). i've been taking body combat classes at the gym. i love pretending i'm punching and kicking people. especially when the instructor yells, "go for the groin!" and i think, "why yes i will go for the groin!" i get a week's worth of angst and aggression out in a one hour class. and then when that's not enough, i do yard work. i rip out weeds. i chop down trees. i snarl at chipmunks. following this formula, saturday was saved. an hour at the gym and then several hours in the yard, i was happier than a dead pig in sunshine.

completely unrelated, this is what i wore to church today.
this is the same skirt from here. everyone who commented said to keep the length, but i just can't do mid-calf skirts without feeling like a cow(barn humor! cockadoodledoo!). so i chopped it and made it knee length. and i don't love the color combination, but i do love the silhouette of a fitted sweater with a full skirt. silhouette and fit is more important than color combination for me.
and my shoes! hurray! i thrifted them for $4! thrifting shoes makes me want to throw up a little in my mouth, but these looked so new i thought i was snatching up someone's shoes they had left on the floor whilst trying on something else. so you know i high-tailed it to the register with the shoes in hand before their rightful owner could claim them, just in case. a nice alcohol cleansing(who says alcohol doesn't solve problems?) and they are finer than a frog hair split four ways.

 sweater- target
skirt- tulle
shoes-thrifted($4! boom shakalaka!)

have a blessed memorial day y'all!

You look lovely! I can't do mid-calf skirts either. I always think they always look frumpy on me. Although, I like both lengths of this skirt equally on you.

Barely anyone can do midi skirts, so who wants to worry ^^ I have one question though: How happy is a dead pig in sunshine?

Love your use of similes (is that how you spell the plural form??) in this post!!

So cute. I thought of you yesterday as I was getting dressed for John Evan's birthday party. It was so hot yesterday and just the idea of wearing pants or even shorts was too much. "It's just a party," I told myself. "I can't wear a skirt." But then I remembered how you always say you're overdressed a lot and so I took a chance and wore a skirt and I was cool and comfortable all day. It was a black and white skirt so I wanted to give it color and wear a top other than black or white, but I couldn't be THAT brave so I ended up just wearing black. But comfy and cool was I!

I miss you Heidi

Heidi! Love the skirt. This morning I thought of you and had the guts/inspiration to take a pair of scissors to my clothes. I got out of bed, found an old cream corduroy skirt in the back of my closet I haven't worn since whitney was born (because it's mid-calf length) and at 8:00am I cut it to knee length, hemmed it and it was ready to go by 8:15. I did it with the sole purpose of wearing it to church today. I know. Kinda risky, since me and a sewing machine don't get along. I read this blog all the time and never post. I always get inspiration from your posts though. Thanks!

The skirt looks great! I am always partial to a longer skirt length, but both look good on ya!
ps-I bought a dress the other day and I can't decide if it's too short. I need you to come over and tell me. It does have a thick hem so it could be let down. But I'm not sure if I should bother...

Oh and I'm sad I didn't find those shoes...what size are they?
