Perhaps the cool tones brought out by the damp air inspired me to wear cool colors of clothing yesterday. Whether or not that was the case, I tried an entirely new outfit with tops in shades of blue. The base for my outfit was one of my favorite shirts for last summer, a tee with music notes printed on it. I tucked this into my tan BCBG skirt (more on that later) and wore a chambray shirt over it. This was a combination that I had never put together before, but I like the classy yet adventurous look it has. Copper also looked charming with his turquoise leash. ;)

Above you can see the mushrooms that litter our front yard and the first blossoms of the trees - I believe that both are enjoying the rain!
I would like to expound a bit on the skirt that I wore yesterday. About a year and a half ago at a Goodwill I found a simply adorable skirt priced at $10, if I remember correctly. Its waistband refuses to be starched into standing upright, but as you can see, it looks fine with a shirt covering the trouble spot. Are you wondering what is the big deal about the skirt? Well, BCBGMAXAZRIA (yes, it's a strange tittle, but I think "Max Azria" is a person's name) is a designer label with skirts that typically run from $100 - $200 - Yikes! Quality, beauty and modesty (oh, and price *cough*) matter more in garments than brand names, but you never know when you will unwittingly find haute couture in the thrift store. ;)
In closing, I would like to share that as of today I have reached 3,000 pageviews! Thank you to all who have looked at my blog. Also, thank you to my 10 followers, a few of which have only just joined in the past couple of weeks. I hope that Sunday Best has inspired you and will continue to encourage you in time to come! :)
