A Daughter's Fun Outfit




I bought a pretty blue skirt for my daughter... and it fit so nicely.  We weren't sure what to pair with it, but she tried her new green shirt with the ruffles down the front.  At first, we rejected the idea since the colors didn't match, but there was also something we liked about the combination.

 We found a scarf that matched the skirt and that helped to tie the outfit together. She remembered that she had a headband with a blue and white polka-dotted bow on it.... and it matched the skirt. She also had blue sparkly earrings.

Overall, the outfit looked nice and we really liked it...   I saw her across the room at a graduation party, in this outfit, and I realized just how nice it looked on her and it looked like a complete outfit that was made that way.






The fun thing is that I bought all of the various parts to the outfit at garage sales.... and they were all at DIFFERENT garage sales, at different times... but together, they formed a nice outfit. Garage sales can be such a great help. :)

Saving Money-Part 3- Buying Used

My Garage Sale Prayer List

I have been able to put together many outfits... one item at a time, and then I just keep looking for something to go with it. Sometimes it involves waiting and sometimes I have to be flexible in what I am looking for, but it is so nice to see how God provides.

Anyway, this outfit has been delightful and I love seeing her wear it.  The full skirt flares nicely when she twirls, which is fun.  The skirt is long enough to be modest and also allow for freedom of movement. What a blessing.

  9. The colors compliment each other so nicely because they are both cool colors. Besides they are also the lighter versions of these. I like the scarf but the outfit would be very nice even without it!! jodie

    1. Yes, the colors do work... and we liked it without the scarf, but it just seemed to "need" something. The scarf seemed to unify the outfit. I also love it that my daughter is becoming a young lady and is interested in dressing in such a feminine and pretty way. :) Thank you for visiting.

  12. That is such a lovely outfit. I think the addition of the scarf was a smart move because it really ties the whole outfit together. May she enjoy twirling in it.
