Cute stuff!

It's a bee-yoo-tiful day here today, and I've got the urge (finally!) to get a bunch of stuff done. But I just have to take a minute to tell you about my eensy weensy shopping excursion yesterday. I stole an hour from my grocery expedition in order to do it-- and you have never SEEN the power shopping I did at the grocery store to make up for it!

For a few weeks now I have been unsuccessfully looking for a pair of cute flats, and look what I found yesterday:

They're not as dressy as I was originally looking for, and they're not red, but they fit, and they're cute, and actually, now that I've had them home, I find they will be an EXCELLENT addition to my wardrobe. So I'm really excited about that, and I'm thanking God for them, because, believe it or not, I know He led me to those.

Also, I found these:

Bracelet watches! I have one in silver, and I had decided that I would like one in red, and maybe brown. It would be a practical way to accessorize, because I like stuff to be practical as well as pretty. So I saw these recently, but I couldn't justify $15 apiece; but then yesterday I decided to just go for it, because, well, because I had talked myself into it.

But when I got there, I discovered they were all on CLEARANCE for $10 apiece, so very very COOL.

And then I found a pair of khaki slacks (sorry, no pic) that actually FIT, so even though they were still $20 on the clearance rack I went ahead and bought them. And I came home a laid out the cutest outfit-- khaki slacks, red embroidered sleeveless top, red cardigan, tan ankle strap sandals, and red bangle watch. I tried it all on for Hubby and he said I looked very dressy; and I think I looked stylish. I have a new outfit for Mother's Day!

How cool is that?? I found some new shirts this week, too! I was hoping to add a lot of red to my wardrobe, but between the choices available and a change in my opinion of what looks good, I have altered directions completely!

I reached the conclusion that I have been erroneously operating under the assumption that my color palette was cool colors. While I was sitting at my hairstylist's having color applied, I was reading the updated version of Color Me Beautiful, and realized that I didn't like very many of the summer colors any more. When I visited with my sister about it, she agreed that I wasn't a true "summer" but more of a "spring." That explains a lot!
