On to wardrobe, yesterday was Friday, jeans day at school, the thing every teacher lives for, believe me. After I got home Jeff and I then had to go to a viewing for his great uncle Dick. I despise viewings. They bring back way too many memories of past viewings I've attended. I noticed since those ones from my childhood which I feel left me affected in some way, I have a hard time breathing at viewings I've attended in adulthood. Even last night, my breathing was shallowing, I was slightly dizzy and no I am not exaggerating. I think it's the smell of those damn florist flowers that gets me every time. When I think of death, that's what I think it smells like.
I love the sweater. It's only three quarter length sleeves so I usually don't wear it in the winter unless I know it will only be for a short period of time. I picked it up $7 at my local consignment shop in town. I believe it's a Wal-Mart brand oddly enough. Usually their qualitiy is less then none but this material is thick, rich, and beautiful. I also love the buttons and the sleeves. The shirt is a Target wonder. It fits me just right. I wore it all the time after I purchased it last summer.
The necklace is my mother's. I've had it in my childhood since I stole it from her when I was very little. My mother doesn't wear jewelery except on special occasions so I was always "borrowing" from her. I didn't find this until probably a year ago when I was going through all my boxes left over from my move into our home. When I asked her about it she told me she bought it in her twenties from one of those jewelry parties they used to through in each others houses. I don't know about you but I would like to know when those went out of style and to bring them back. I would much rather go to a jewelry party then a Pampered Chef or Party Lite party, no offense.And I also love how things I've adopted from my mother have suddenly come back into style. I was looking through Forever 21's jewelry page and saw a necklace very similar.
We're going to the funeral today and I haven't decided if I am going to wear a dress or not. Either way I will try to get some pictures of the outfit.
