Yesterday morning I did a dumb thing.
I decided to wear a pair of pants to church that I had rescued from my daughter's yard sale pile.
Here's where the dumb part comes in. They were extremely long. My daughter is about 4 inches taller than I am and even with my highest heels, the pants were too long.
So what did I do? Choose something else to wear? Nope.
I put them on and took up precious "getting ready for church on time change Sunday" time to hem them. While I was wearing them. Yes, I said I hemmed them while wearing them. Hey, it's a gift.
The pants are a low rise navy with a faint pin stripe. I picked a sleeveless silk blouse that has a water color-y look to it. It has tones of gray, blue and dark pink (fuschia-esq). Blouses are IN in a big way right now. At least that's what Ann Taylor keeps telling me. She emails me all the time.
I tucked the top in because it's rather long and the pants are quite the low rise.
Since it was also a bit chilly in Florida yesterday I borrowed one of my daughter's cap-sleeved sweaters in navy to top it.
I still think I need to hem the pants a little shorter.
Why am I telling you this?
Because way back in 2009 I started a blog series called "Shop Your Closet" and I am thinking about reviving it.
And then this morning I found this post on this blog. And I felt inspired.
How about you? Do you enjoy putting things together that you already own in a new and different way?
Have you ever hemmed your pants while wearing them?
