Getting Over the Death of Clothing: The Navy Shirtdress

A few years ago, I had bought this shirtdress from H&M that I loved.  It was that versatile piece that could be worn with boots, leggings and a shirt under it in the winter and sandals in the summer.  I loved it and was somewhat distraught when I discovered shocking news -  it didn't fit me well anymore!  I decided to put it in the Goodwill bag because it wasn't getting any wear from me by sitting in my closet.  So, why am I still thinking about it now?  Maybe it was because I forgot that it didn't fit me anymore and had fantasies of wearing it with a new item.  Deep down inside, I hoped that it had missed the ride to Goodwill and was hiding some place in my house.  I have chosen that I need to get over this dress.  I have replaced it with other shirtdresses that are just as nice and have accepted the fact that it will never come back.

I made this recipe to put on top of dessert pancakes and it turned out very nicely.

Summer Cardigans

Cardigans are in style at just about every time of year. The trick is wearing the right cardigan for the right type of weather.  You don't want to wear a heavy wintry cardigan when it is 80 degrees outside or a light weight cardigan in the middle of January (unless you live in a warm place).  In the summer it may sound impractical to wear a sweater, but I assure you, it's not.  It might be scorching hot outside, but with the air conditioner on full blast, you might get a little chilly.
