The Marionette Doll
|Thinking about making something fancy for this.|
Some days I just have to cut the strings. Go off on my own. Rest. Otherwise I become this doll that bites - "Chrissy Bites A-lot". And who wants that doll?? So, I'm working on short reprieves here and there - reading, an errand by myself and my latest and greatest to me...enlisting them in clean up! New rule: Before you even ask to play with your ________ (for my boys it's an electronic device), you must finish all that is on your list. When I remember to enforce this rule, there is less arguing and hassling. And less pulling on my strings!! :) Of course I must add that attending to my family is a blessing, honor and a joy, but there are days.
Now let's get to this outfit that I had fun wearing this past weekend...
Jacket is Back
Cable Pullover Sweater
Old Pleated GAP Skirt
And That GoodWill Find
Yes, the jacket is back out, but this post is all about the ankle boots I found at GoodWill and how they compare with what's trending right now.
Jimmy Choo's, Michael Kors and NineWest
Ranging from $56 to over $1,000
That's close enough for me!! How do you break away figuratively or literally speaking from those that may pull strings from time to time?
P.S. I am adding a couple links for the boots above in case you want to check it out and "window" shop. (NineWest is having an extra 20% off sale right now.)
P.S.S. Our small addition is slowly coming along, as you can see. :)
