Visible Monday: Tweed
As in every other outfit I've posted this month, I'm sporting my Frye boots, this time with a tweed skirt by Ralph Lauren. I bought it in this size 6, even though I should have known better, because of the blue fleck in the wool. As I pondered the problem of how to get around the size problem, I hit upon the trick all expectant mothers have probably used with our jeans--the rubber band or hair tie, then covered that up with the leather belt! It worked and the skirt is perfectly comfortable. I suppose this is a sign of MY neurosis!
The fine gauge turquoise sweater is by Banana Republic. The camel coat below is by Talbots. ALL items made in the U.S.A! And ALL items thrifted.
But like most of us, I have 5 pounds that come and go on a seasonal basis. This pic was snapped BEFORE Christmas and BEFORE the full effects of the winter weight. Some years I have worried about this, but if I can refrain from the worry as my mother advises, the weight does seem to magically disappear when the weather grows warmer. Do any of my readers find this to be true?
