|1...2...3...Draw! Bang Bang!!|
A lot of my fellow classmates are very musically inclined, whether it be vocally or instrumentally or both, so on Wednesday of last week, we had a 'Musical Lunch'. We all sat in a big circle in our school's big lecture hall and sang songs (in Hebrew) while some people provided musical accompaniment. The school ordered lunch for us and I decided to bring my flute in for the jam session:) We got an email telling us that we would be doing this 'picnic style' (i.e. eating and singing while sitting on the floor) and that we should dress accordingly. Since I normally wear more structured pencil-style skirt that don't lend well to sitting cross-legged on the floor, I knew that I needed to find a more appropriate skirt that would allow me to sit comfortably while still remaining modest. I haven't worn this skirt in approximately 2 years (as it has been way too small for me) but since January of last year I have lost over 40 lbs and now this skirt - which used to be a favorite of mine - now fits again! It's like shopping in my own closet because clothes that used to be too small for me that i was hesitant to get rid of and therefore kept, are now fitting again - and I am sooo glad that I decided to keep them (I just wish I had kept more!). Back to the outfit...
This corduroy skirt is different from most of my others in that this one is loose and flowy, not pencil cut. I have had this pink sweater in my closet for months and it's just been hanging there waiting for me to have some inspiration. Well I finally dug it out, clipped off the tags, and paired it with this bright multi-colored pink scarf tied as a bandit bandana. I added my moccasins to give it a more 'Wild Wild West' feel, and there you go - a pretty simple outfit as far I'm concerned, but one that I think is playful and flirty:) I even got a bit goofy in the photoshoot as you can see!

Don't ya love when you can go shopping in your own closet? Do you get rid of clothes that don't fit, or hang on to them?
