Moonridge Clothes

We’re getting ready to go on our yearly trip to Big Bear Lake next Saturday. In preparation I did some shopping at my favorite store, Ross, to look for a few summery items to wear. I found a few things but as usual for me, they need a few adjustments. So now I get to do a few (hopefully quick) alterations to complete my trip wardrobe.

We are going to Moonridge Animal Park in Big Bear so the attire is definitely casual, shorts, cool blouse and sun hat will do. But in the evening we will probably head to a nice restaurant and I wanted something, still cool and casual but a little nicer.

I found the perfect thing at Ross, a pair of long black shorts in a dressy fabric. I guess they could be called bermudas.
Unfortunately with my short legs the shorts look like they were going for capri length and didn’t quite make it. I have to take about two inches off the length to get it above my knee.
Also needing a few tweaks is this cool shell. I loved this blouse the moment I saw it, unfortunately I only found one in size medium. Some mediums fit me, this one was right on the edge. I decided to buy it thinking that hopefully it might fit me soon. I’ve been losing weight ever so slowly, so I have hopes for a lot of slightly small items in my closet, what’s one more.

When I got it home I noticed that by letting out a small bit in the back darts and lowering the points of the front darts I could probably get it to fit well enough for use at Moonridge. I set right to it.
