I have been dreading this day as I had a doctor's appointment that was slated not to go well. I'll spare you the suspense...it did go well!!!! Well, at least a lot better than I expected. Do you ever have one of those days when you have somewhere that you must go, but you don't want to go and because you don't want to go, there is absolutely nothing in your closet that you want to wear? Well, if you have, then you know exactly how I felt today. Typically, I would not wear what I wore to this appointment today. I usually try and look my best, a skirt, maybe a pair of slacks, but not today. I threw caution to the wind and wore exactly what I felt like wearing and here it is...
my crazy Day of the Dead rain boots(I love these boots!),
with my BRIGHT orange coat. I think this is an out of print Vogue pattern. I'll dig it up and see as if it isn't, it's a good one to have in your arsenal of patterns.
And underneath I wore my tattoo inspired t-shirt.
I also made the sunshine flower I'm wearing. I'll do a tutorial on this flower as it is really easy and lots of fun to make.
I knitted the scarf as well. This is another piece I should do a little tutorial on as the stitch is so easy and makes a project go lightening fast.
I even have a matching purse! So as upset as I was about having to go to this appointment, and as funky as I looked, all in all, the outfit came together fairly well. As I said, the appointment went far better than I expected, so to celebrate, I decided to "just take a look" in a shoe store, at least that's the story I'll tell my husband!!
Remember this jacket? Well...how could I not buy these shoes? They are perfect!!!
The picture does not do them justice as the gold is shiny. I do love shiny!! Besides, I needed to celebrate the good news. Again, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
On Sunday evening I'll share my doctor's story with you.
