Let me give you the scoop: it's a Saturday, a formal family shindig is in an hour, and I'm stuck with a plethora of bowling-alley friendly clothes.
I noticed this Old Navy skirt from years gone by at the extreme undergrowth of my dresser.
Sweet, but what a waistline. I might have worn it maybe once.
(And yes, I am indecently exposing my ribcage-area. My apologies.)
Pair it with a shirt, add some ribbon (it crosses in the back), and pull it up to nerdy levels, and "taadaa!" a pinafore.
Peace once again, crisis averted.
