Rainy Days & Rain Delays

    The sun hasn't shone much in the last two weeks and we have at least another week of rain ahead of us, maybe more.  Typhoon season lasts for about nine months out of the year.  I don't mind too much, in fact I kind of like the rainy days.  The trouble is that without at least an hour or so of sunlight, I can't take new outfit photos.  My closet currently has a growing section of to-be-photographed outfits...but they'll just have to wait on the weather.

    In the mean time, we've had some lovely hours on the covered patio and some very splashy walks.  I don't know why rain is such a magical thing for children, but it is and the excitement is contagious.  These are moments of grace and I treasure them.
    The quiet days have also given me time to think.  I know there are some truly top fashion-istas out there whose blogs feature a new, expensive outfit everyday.  They're beautiful and brilliant and I love looking at their photos and ideas as much as the next person.  It's just not a realistic way for me to live.  I really don't have the budget or the time to invest in trying to keep up with the Joneses of the fashion world.  

    So, I've decided to focus less on the designer / brand and more on the idea of putting an outfit together.  That's how most of us live, right?  We don't buy a new hundred dollar dress or two every week.  We wait for the sales and we figure out new ways to use what we have with an occasional new item thrown in to spice things up.  

    In the coming weeks you'll see more inexpensive styles and repeats of certain dresses, worn in new ways.  This means it won't be as easy to track down exactly what I'm wearing, but the main thing is that you get the idea and it inspires you to create your own look.
