Resourcefulness 101...

As the oldest of six children from a budget-strapped farm family, I learned as a little girl how to be resourceful...

Resourcefulness can certainly be budget friendly, yes; but there's a sense of accomplishment when one's creativity muscles get flexed a bit.  And, truly, that's what resourcefulness does. It works those babies a bit (smile).

Resourcefulness is the dress worn as a skirt. It's the cardigan styled more like a top than a layering piece.

Resourcefulness is thrifting. It's re-purposing older pieces, too. This scarf was an accompaniment from a suit that I donated to charity long ago.  I loved it as a standalone; so, it was kept, and is joyously worn from time-to-time.

Joy & grace, T.
