New Skirt

on the road again...

running errands in the rain: rainbow colored threads for buttons and hems.

It was a tax free shopping weekend here in Texas. I have to admit, this was my first time to take advantage of the benefit and participate in the frenzy. I have been cleaning out my closet at the same time, but at this point I have no idea what's staying and what's going. I need to do a better job letting things go, especially if I keep adding to my collection...

Today's skirt is from the J. Crew outlet in Allen, TX. I've always wanted a madras plaid patchwork skirt, but they can be expensive and tacky too. My skirt is cut with burgundy plaids and only set me back $18 (compared to the original $65.) I love it! I can't wear it to school with the little ones because it's a little too short, but the tykes aren't there yet ;-)

On the to do list for today: (I've been writing more of them these days...)
I know, I know. I need to post pics from Mexico. The days keep slipping by and I feel worse and worse about it. I'll get started on it today, but this week is filled with doubles and preparations for first days of schools. Speaking of... gotta go
