On planning your outfit...

Today was to be one of those beautifully precision-ed days.  Since it was one jam packed with lots of errands, duties and a smattering of social things, I didn't think I would have much time for standing in front of the wardrobe debating on what on earth I should wear this morning. So I devoted time last night to a bit of mental strategising about my outfit.  I had a fabulous and complete outfit worked out in my head, all designed to look "just right" for the activities I had to do today.   I can assure you this isn't something I do very often, I'm more of a "how the mood strikes me" kind of a dresser...  
So I had the perfect outfit all mapped out.  And then got up this morning and just intuitively grabbed a, like, completely different, and I'm talking head-to-toe here, ensemble.  Yah, I can be sorta contrary...
Moral of the story: don't bother planning your outfit, you'll have changed your mind by the morning anyway.
Realistically it was too warm today for my envisioned outfit anyway...   (11C-21C, if you're interested)  I'll wear it some other, more winter-y day.

Shirt; Burda 7767, with modifications, cotton chambray, details here
Skirt; skirt "m" from Unique Clothes Any Way You Like by Natsuno Hiraiwa, pink cotton/linen, details here
Socks; handknit by me, details here
Shoes; Francesco Morichetti from Zomp shoes

(Below; just for interest, the back view.  This skirt is real versatile in that it can be swivelled around so that bustle is facing any way you choose.  I like the skirt worn this way around, but my husband informed this morning he doesn't like it like this.  Hmmm, conundrum, should I dress to please my husband, or me??)
