The word ELATION has come off my wall
so that the room can be painted…so I
added a touch!!
Shirt Dress: Lane Bryant
Jacket: Chicos
Shoes: Target

As soon as I typed this cliché, I wondered where it came from. The first time it was used in written literature was in 1534 by John Fitzherbert and was intended to illustrate that old dogs and old people learn less well than the young.

I would like to take issue with that statement…I teach high school and sometimes that is just not true!! But, I digress…. today’s outfit is a new trick I learned on the blogs…I have just never done this before.

The trick is to cover the top of a dress in order to create a skirt-appearance. I am sure some of you are thinking…Seriously, she has never done this?? But I first noticed it on What I Wore 2day with Kasmira. ….in fact, she does it a lot and since then I have wanted to give it a try. So, here is my try…instead of purchasing a khaki skirt, I just covered the top of my khaki shirt dress.

I must say…I really like the look! Woof, Woof…this dog’s still got a few tricks!!
