Dressing to Match the House

I did not intentionally pack an outfit to match the exterior of my brother-in-law's house, but sometimes these things just have a way of working out.   I also must admit that this was kind of a thrown together look.  Or in other words, I didn't do a "dry-run."  You know how sometimes you have an idea for an outfit and you try it on in your bedroom and play music and jump around like a rock star?  Maybe, that's just me, but anyway I thought about putting this button down under this sweatshirt tunic, but I didn't test it out.  Instead I just threw a bunch of things in my suitcase and hoped for the best.

And let's talk about this tunic, shall we?  Okay, it's a sweatshirt tunic with a horse's head embrodiered on the front and gold grommets down the side.... So yeah, there's a lot going on in this one garment.  When faced with a busy item of clothing I feel one has two options, either downplay it or embrace it. Here's I've kind of done both.


  1. This is like fashion therapy - good to know there are others out there singing into their hair brushes.

  2. Yes it is good to know I'm not the only one. Thanks!
