Black and white on Monday

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.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love hearing others feelings and appreciate your time. Please be honest - BUT kind.
