Vintage trials and tribulations

Today it took me nearly an hour to get dressed.  Let me clarify...I don't mean an hour to get ready (hair, make up, etc).  I mean an hour to actually get clothes on.

Why do you ask?  (or do you care?)

Sigh.  I was having issues!  Normally the process of actually getting clothes on takes maybe ten or so minutes.  Seriously!  I usually know what I want and once I get dressed and take a look at what I envision in my head, I tweak slightly and I'm good.  Onto hair and make up.

Not this morning.  I literally tried on several outfits.  Nothing worked.  

And I realized I had a some problems:

First, I need a haircut.  I can't keep chucking it up in a topknot and wearing a scarf.  And second, it's really hot.  And sticky and humid, too.  Not very conducive to wearing my vintage things.

When the hubby came upstairs, he giggled.  Not only was I still in my underpants, but I also had something totally different on top than I had when he had gone downstairs earlier.  Offering me the perspective that I usually need (which is why I love him), he first said forget about wearing that thingy (I had originally wanted to wear a gift from Vic and Lily).  When I told him I wasn't trying to wear that any longer, he asked what my problem was.  And here it was, I wanted to wear a vintage dress, but thought it was too hot.  I was all in a tizzy trying to think of something different.  To this he replied well, then just wear one! 

Brilliant!  He's quite helpful in his blunt and no nonsense way.  So I picked this flowy yellow one.  It was what I wanted to wear all along.

p.s. The big girl took these pictures after her ballet class.  She's getting really good!  Ballet examination day is tomorrow!
