Yesterday I was sitting on a patio with my dog. Tonight we have a freeze warning. My opinion is, if it is going to be that cold, bring on the snow, but it isn't blowing this way.  Soon though, soon.

I believe in the simple power of alterations to make clothes work for you. However, practicing what I preach doesn't always happen. I just get lazy. But here I am, wearing two altered pieces that otherwise would probably just be hanging my closet. The weather continues to cool down a bit which is allowing cords, scarves and sweaters to come out of hiding. Next week we're expecting some windy days, so boots might finally get to make an appearance. Continuing to shop my closet, and be grateful for what I have.

The slightly changing temps mean that I'm sort of breaking out of my wardrobe rut. Being able to put on a few layers always helps. I'm really resisting the urge to keep just adding, adding, adding things to my overstuffed closet. I need to get over my mental block of repeating ensembles. (I like to find new combinations to wear what I have.) It is also probably time to clean out or store some things that don't really fit, etc.
