Friday, February 1, 2013












Jacket, Dollhouse; Blouse and "Diva" Shorts, Old Navy; Sunglasses, Steve Madden; Necklace and Earrings, Forever 21; Boots, "Trumpet" by Wanted
Lip Color: "Smokin Hot Pink, 905D" Mega Last Lip Color by wet n wild

Today's Weather: High 64º; Low 41º F. Very sunny, surprisingly.

I thought today was going to be a repeat of the last three days more cold, slightly damp, and cloudy gloom; but alas, no. Me being me I was slightly bummed because the night before I had fallen asleep thinking of prancing around the next day in my little blue wool cape that I haven't worn in quite some time, opaque black tights, little suede booties, and something flashy: a crystal necklace perhaps? (Who else does this before bed, really who? I know I can't be the only one)  As luck would have it I stepped outside this morning and there was not a cloud in the sky. It felt much warmer than the reading on the thermometer thanks to the sun doing his best seemingly to make up for his absence the past week. There was barely a breeze... Louisiana weather really must suffer from some type of identity disorder, but I already knew that.

Since I believe in dressing for the weather and not necessarily the season... I ended up with this. Casual, comfy, roomy...boring? Even so it's perfect to run errands in and please Dear Reader, consider it an illustration of how I must deal with this finicky weather. Also, I learned I prefer my braid over my left shoulder and not right, but I'd have never known if I wasn't one of those crazies that takes pictures of her outfits and posts them on the internet ::smile::

Hoping there is sun shining bright where you are,
