Do you remember where I previously mentioned that I found myself wearing a black skirt or pants almost every Monday?  Well, I make a concerted effort not to wear black on Mondays.  I know that the reason I reverted to it time and time again is that I didn’t have to think too  much and was ready to roll quickly.
 
This morning I started with a much different outfit in mind and then decided that the pants were too tight so went with something else and this top was the first thing I saw.  I took it over to the wardrobe where my skirts are and then saw this skirt which I’m sad to admit I have not worn in months and was avoiding it as it is a little tight over the hips, but since I’ve lost a wee bit of weight, I decided to see if it fitted a little looser … and it does, just slightly, but far more bearable when I tried to wear it last.
 
I don’t think I’ve ever worn it with this top and I can’t think why I wouldn’t have as they’re a match made in heaven with my black court shoes and the belt with the gold detailing, which I must add I also have not worn in ages.

I had to head back to the optometrist this afternoon for them to complete the quotes.  Boy, its an expensive business.  Co-payment on mine is a small fortune!  However, trying to get the payment to go through proved to be a mission.  We agreed that since I’m going back on Thursday to take Liam for his test that we’d process it then.
I’m looking forward to my new frames … they’re purple!  Would have loved it if they’re had the same frame in black.
Well … as they say at the movies … That’s all Folks!   Hope you’ve had a fabulous Monday and a great start to a wonderful week.
