Given it some thought? I'm sure you'll all agree that it's true. I own a not-so-pleasing-to-the-eyes pair of green polka dot pants that has been in my closet for the past six months. However, I have a plan for the 'monstrosity';  this summer I will fold the ankles, grab a white cotton blazer, an emerald statement necklace, a pair of white strappy wedge heels, and I am good to go.
