The first two outfits I put on today also seemed quite unsuitable because it's shaping up to be a warm day and after half an hour in them I was too warm. There is no guarantee that what I throw on tomorrow won't turn out to leave me not warm enough. In fact a breeze could come up and I will find myself cold later today. That's so typical of our climate here. Then I seem to get hung up on getting the colours and proportions right, always feeling as though I don't have the right coloured, tee shirt in the right length for each particular skirt, no matter how much I have attempted shopping to solve this problem.

In case you think my thoughts ended there, you would be quite wrong dear reader, my brain is constantly a buzz. I continued to think about this for a few days. I stood in my closet and looked at everything and tried to figure out what was wrong. Eventually it came to me. I have mastered my own style for fall and winter, and I've got a handle on it for cool spring wather, but I cant' figure out what I want to wear in warm weather. I know I want to wear skirts but I can't seem to find the right skirts.
I have a closet full of spring/summer skirts and dresses which I put on and then take off, deciding they are not quite right. I don't feel too terribly guilty because they are thrift shop finds at thrift shop prices, easy enough to afford the experiment in finding my summer style. It is a time of experimenting for me but instead of being excited about it and wanting to take photos and share, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Or perhaps underwhelmed. Underwhelmed by my choices and overwhelmed with the effort of trying.
The sartorial solution to over-underwhelmedness and general closet dissatisfaction is to put on my favourite tie-dyed dress. It's cotton jersey, easy, comfortable, has blue, green and purple colours and just sort of screams Shawna. Or perhaps it whispers Shawna. I'm not really the screaming type. I'm looking for a nice word to describe a vocalisation in between a scream and a whisper but I'm all done with thinking for today.....haha. Just kidding. When would that ever happen?
Yesterday's outfit was somewhat similar. It was a wonky hair day and required a hair band that was once a belt on a dress that doesn't fit me.
See it's the jersey again. I want more of this. More more more but it's not easy to find. And I want some above the knee skirts in light weight jersey. I'm going to have to make them aren't I? Yeah, I knew it.
