I started freaking out because I decided it was "unfair" that when he gets days off, he doesn't have to "go" to work but I LIVE AT WORK so there is no time that I'm not here, unless I'm elsewhere taking care of things for work which is where I live and how unfair is that except no I would not like a job outside the house either. Blah, blah, blah, being unreasonable, and so on and so forth.
We worked it out. You can start breathing again.
You're hearing all this because I want you to know that after 12.7 years of marriage, yes, this kind of stuff still happens. And ALSO, as a result of said discussion, I ended up leaving the house to get not-something-for-work, which turned out to be some "new" ropas from Goodwill, which included a purple button down top that was cute but boring at the same time. So I tweeted the following..
The tips resulted in me making myself a new necklace and then, of my own accord, altering some jeans 45 minutes before Mass started. Wanna see how it all turned out?
Jeans, altered real quick like, inspired by Ana who did he same thing a while ago but I can't find her post now (before/after pic at the bottom right there): Gap via Goodwill
Edited to add: I found Ana's original post from last year! She was the first to snazzify the old pantaloons. Check it.
Jacket: wool blend off brand, also Goodwill
Purple Button down: Apt 9 (Kohl's) via Goodwill
Necklace: thrown together by yours truly at approx 9:27 p.m. last night.
Ballet flats: Anne Klein via Ebay
Costume jewelry ear hoops: costume jeweler of choice. I think I got these off the Avon website (true story)
And now, for the before/after pic of ye olde jeans (2005 be gone!), which was truly the highlight of my morning:
Linking up with the lovely ladies at Fine Linen & Purple. You should too!
