Project 1 - Choosing the right attire

:slight_smile: :upside_down_face: :slight_smile: :upside_down_face: :smiley: :necktie: :bikini: :high_heel: :lipstick: :socks: :full_moon_with_face: :new_moon_with_face:
Okay, donโ€™t laugh but this project gave me so much joy. First of all, I did not realize how capable I was until I did this. I hope this is the right place to put it as I am not seeing other projects on the forumโ€ฆ perhaps Iโ€™m not looking in the right place? Anyway, here goes. My first ever program from scratch. NOT PERFECT OR NECESSARILY HIGH IN DEMAND OF A PROGRAM, but like I said, it brought me joy. It includes, structs, variables, inputs, outputs, loops and only when I took a step back did I realize how much I have learned. Thanks @ivan! Maybe Liz will like it too lol! P.S. There is more complexity I would like to add to it now that itโ€™s actually functional at all. Forgive the limit on options as well as if the entry is invalidโ€“I wanted to put the existing loop within another so that the program could continue to run until it received a valid entryโ€ฆ however, I was met with a mental road block there. IF ANYONE WANTS TO ADD TO IT TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN, PLEASE DO!!! Very exciting!

//program to help decide what outfit to wear based on the occasion
