Fit for an Outing - Coming up Roses

I wore this yesterday. Because I was going to see my dentist. And I really love my dentist. Gosh, he's just got a real way with my teeth. We have to be good buds too, because I see him frequently, being the treat person that I am. No shots, just a little adjustment I needed on a previous crown. When he was all done, I arose from the chair and he even commented on my outfit. I know, he's a real doll!

Oddly, nothing in this outfit, except the brooch is handmade. It's all old stuff though. The jacket and skirt are from Anthropologie and the blouse is from Old Navy. What's even more odd, is that I never wear this skirt but I love it. I have this cycle though. I'll randomly splurge on some really outrageous item, like this skirt for example, never wear it for years and then one year, it just gets worn to death. Let's see, I think this skirt is nearly 10 years old. Sheesh!  I have so many articles like this. And judging from how terribly comfortable this ensemble was, I'll be wearing it alot more often. Do you do that with clothes? What's been in the closet for a really long time that all of sudden you're ready to wear every single day?

A warm day, a picnic blanket, a little bit of the buble and Mr. S and I'll be set for the rest of the warm days ahead.
