Try a little something new

Nothing I'm wearing today is new, but it is another new combination I pulled together for this dress.  I still think this dress is my favorite item of clothing that I own!  And I love finding new ways to wear it.  Someday I'll pull together all the ways I've remixed it so far, maybe after I've had it a full year - I still haven't even had it that long yet!

There was a live action children's show when I was young on the Disney Channel (now mind you this is when the Disney Channel was brand new and you had to pay extra for it - I had generous parents) called Welcome to Pooh Corner.  In it, the characters were larger versions than in the cartoon - they were basically people inside a walk around costume.  Anyway in the show there was a song that Rabbit sang about trying new things.  "Try a little something new, try a little something different, try a little something no one else has done."  So I'm thinking this morning about how I love trying new things with this dress and of all random things that song popped into my head.  I haven't watched that show in close to 20 years at this point - how would I remember that?  My brain is a fun place to be sometimes, let me tell you!

Anyway, besides nostalgia, I have nothing else terribly exciting to share today other than I was able to take some decent outdoor pictures again!  This time of year is just tricky.  And yes, I still have bare legs.  It's going to be 80 degrees today, possibly for the last time, so I wasn't about to cover them up!  The bottom falls out tomorrow though.  I am ok with that though, I'm ready for tights!!  Cover up these pale legs!

I'll leave you with the intro to the old Welcome to Pooh Corner so you can see more of what I was talking about.  I tried to find the Try A Little Something New Song, but no luck.  All I can say about this show was, it was 1983. And I'm sorry if it gives you nightmares, looking back it's a little frightening, but it was one of my favorites when I was 4 years old!
