These weird weather days really mess with my wardrobe. The deal with wearing weather related layers is that each layer has to be able to look great on it's own. If I wear a scarf, the outfit sans scarf has to still look great. Ditto for the sweater. For an outing with my sweet baby, I decided to do long shorts. I put this all together and the only thing I'd change if I could would be put on some gray ankle boots with this. I have been wondering if I could pull off the ankle boot with bare leg look and after trying on a pair yesterday, I am in LOVE! It just goes to show you what a difference small changes can make.
I think the small change-big difference philosophy translates to so many areas of our lives. Adding a vase of fresh flowers to a room - small change but takes formal straight to friendly! Drinking out of a pretty glass or coffee cup. I'm on a never ending quest to find just the right pretty coffee cup to drink my coffee from. I just feel prettier when I'm holding something pretty! I've noticed small attitude changes make a big difference for me. When I get a funky feeling, I try to immediately shift the focus from the feeling to what I'm thankful for. Most of the time it works like a charm....and when it doesn't? Well, that's what make "psychologically therapeutic pizza" for. Meat Lover's with jalapeno add ons is known in psychiatry circles world wide for it's mood enhancing properties. By the way, the last pic is of me and Sweet Baby. My man does the "crazed eye" look so well!

By the way, I've been toying with the idea of doing an online clothing, shoe, accessorie exchange. Maybe where we post a few things that have lost their excitement for us, that someone else may be feeling the love for. I would love some input on how to make this work. I'm all about the "One man's trash...." theme and what a great opportunity for everyone to have access to unique items from all over the country!
