This weekend I explored Tuttle Orchards with a girlfriend. I am always excited to find new places in Indianapolis and the surrounding area, so when she asked me if I was down to visit an orchard I jumped on the chance. I'm sure it had nothing to do with my slight obsession with the move Cider House Rules when I was growing up... Sadly my Toby McGuire lookalike was nowhere to be found, but I did find tons of local produce ready to be snapped up!
After we checked out their farm store, we headed across the street to snap a few pictures. I wore this red dress because duh, apples. I haven't featured this dress on In Kinsey's Closet since this post way back in 2010! I'm glad this dress has stayed a closet staple for me. I have considered donating it a few times, but I'm very happy that I could break it out today.
I have been thinking about my "donator's regret" a lot recently. Sometimes I get a little too overzealous with closet cleanouts. Personally I have a hard time balancing the rule of "if you haven't worn it in a year donate it" and the irritation I feel when I realize those shoes I sold at a garage sale would have been perfect with a new dress. Whenever I do a closet purge I box things up and give them to my mom to sell at her famous garage sales. It has happened on multiple occasions that the following year, as I help her set up her sale, I find an old skirt I wanted to give away and take it back. I guess I need a new rule: No taksies backsies!
