Shopping my Closet

I want something different to wear to church on this cool, fall-like, Sunday morning.
I don't want to spend any money.
I know, I'll take Missus Smarty Pants' advice to Shop My Closet !

Where do I start?
I want to wear my favorite and most comfortable pair of shoes.

I love to wear them but I didn't think I had much to match.

I posted about these shoes before.  But just in case you forgot or don't want to visit that post, here's a quick run-down.  They are vintage Salvatore Ferragamo and were my very first purchase from Etsy. (I've made one more purchase since then that I'll tell you about it in a later post. :)  I got the shoes from a sweet lady named Nancy.  You can visit her shop here. ( I hope she doesn't mind that I kept the picture she made of them and used it again today. It was such a flattering picture of the shoes. : )

So, to my closet I go to put together an outfit starting with my ruby red shoes.

I chose a white, pink, and red striped camisole that I bought in the very early spring at Walmart.  To that I added my handmade white skirt and my thrifted Style & Co. short sleeve lacy cardigan.

I already had the vintage black and white brooch pinned on my handmade purse, so I decided to carry that along.

Since I was feeling pretty spiffy in my "new" outfit, I persuaded sweet hubby, Neil, out of his comfy chair to snap pictures of my outfit before heading out to church.

I think he had too much fun laughing at me this morning.  Okay Neil, thank you but that's enough pictures!

I look forward to a worshipful morning at church and say along with the Psalmist David,

I will sing to the Lord,
for He has been good to me!
Psalm 13:6
