Make Haste

I overslept this morning.  Wanted to give myself plenty of time to prepare for an early start.  Steve had to be at work at 7, so I'm at work at 7.  I don't mind.  I set the alarm, but forgot to make it for M-F instead of Sa-Su.  Whoops.  Thankfully, I woke myself up 15 minutes before we had to leave.

Why am I telling you this?  Because in my haste, I neglected to grab my USB thingy to upload photos from the clothes swap.  Not that I took many photos...something I neglect doing every year.  I guess you just have to go to one to get the full effect.  In any case, I'll have a clothes-swap how-to for you tomorrow, pictures or no pictures.

I didn't think I'd have a chance to photograph this particular outfit, but when I found myself at our lovely, local library, it seemed like a good opportunity.  I used to buy any book I was interested in at, but now I check them out at the library first to make sure it's really what I want.  This day, I was returning books about Pugs and puppy training.  Go figure.

You look super cute in this outfit! I love that color pink on you.

I can't wait to read your how-to clothing swap post. I'd love to host one here but I'm not sure there are enough people around me to get involved.

LOVE that last photo with your reflection in the puddle. It's so great! Hope the swap went well! I was sad I couldn't make it. Can't wait to read the post.

The outfit itself is great, but I had to comment because that last shot with your reflection in the puddle is just amazing.

I think you chose a great place to take your photos! You look amazing in these colors and I love your pants. :) I wish I could pull them off, but my short self would look super silly!

Looking forward to your swap how-to! I'm thinking about organizing one in my community to benefit a charity.
