Hideaway

This outfit is from Sunday. I hemmed my skirt on Saturday night and was thrilled to wake up on Sunday and find that the weather was perfect and that I could wear my newly-hemmed skirt. Although I'm loving the beautiful weather it does present a problem. I usually take my photos in the Botanical Gardens on campus. But when the weather is nice the gardens are full of picnic-ers and trail walkers and all sorts of people ruining my private picture-taking. But, I did manage to find a little corner camouflaged by trees to take these photos in.

The new length is so much better. It really was wonky before. Good for you to develop DIY skills!

Such a cute look, as usual!

I totally did not know there were botanical gardens in Asheville. I am going to have to check that out whenever I go up that way again. Neat! I love the one at Clemson University in SC.
