So I Put Away my "Winter" Clothes
Last year I decided to try the strategy my friends "up north" practice and I put away my "winter clothes." Now remember, I use that term lightly as I live between Miami and Ft. Lauderdale and their really isn't a need for winter clothes except about 5 days a year when the temp dips below 70 degrees.
Anyway, I decided I should start an Ebay selling frenzy and start with the winter clothes in the plastic box way up in the top of my closet.
What was I thinking? there are some really cute clothes in that box, so between my keepers and the ones my teens ran off with I think I had about 3 extra things to sell.
So much for the Ebay frenzy off to Target and Barnes & Noble.
Now all I have to do is pray for some super cold days- HAH!
Jeggings: Kmart (not from the winter box)
Flower tank: impulse buy from Old Navy a few years ago, never wore it until...
I pulled this super cute Jacket/sweater /whatever you want to call it from the winter box. It is only cotton, so I guess it only got in there because it was long (shirred!) sleeves. It is a beautiful plum shade and it was a gift from the most awesome Mother-In-Law in the world. She lives in Canada so I have no idea where she purchased it.
Are you starting to put your Holiday stuff up yet? I am standing next to the undecorated main tree in our house. My daughter is doing the lights today but she is pacing herself ...lol.
We usually have between 2-3 trees in our home, plus each daughter has a tiny one in her room. I have an awesome collection of ornaments, I am going to post about them (brag about them) later.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving-retailers seem to have forgotten about it.
