this week we have had wacky cool weather. so i did something that i've never done before, i wore a sweatshirt in may with white jeans. jeans that i pulled out of my goodwill pile. i was adequately attired for the weather(sweatshirt) and month(white pants in may). it's not a very exciting outfit; i felt like i was straddling the line between a land's end catalog and p. diddy's all white hampton's party. holla!
but this is why i have goodwill pile anxiety. items of clothing must live for at least 6 months in the goodwill pile before i can make the big transition to the goodwill box in my car. from there is it usually another 3 months before i remember that said box is in my car and i drive over to goodwill. then before i drop the box off, i do one last rummage and normally grab one thing out and toss it back in my car before the big box handoff. such is the anatomy of a goodwill drop-off.

new running watch- mother's day gift from my husband
then i wore this the next day. another earth-shattering combination. a cardigan and shorts! hello breezy 65 degrees! should i do a tutorial on how i made these pants into shorts? it involved scissors and cutting. if i wanted to add a third step i could have added measuring. but let's not get crazy because i didn't. but i DID take the pants off for the cutting process. i find that works better. that's an insider's tip for you. and every time i wear these shorts some man(sometimes my husband) asks if i've been painting. like being "artfully distressed" is such an out there concept.
