dreaming of bare legs

Thursday, January 30

Kinda fitting that I am posting this today, since I'm wearing the same sweater/scarf combo (that I wear like, everyday), but NOT the same skirt without tights. Not at all. Without being complain-y, I would like to say that I'm pretty much over the freezing conditions. I have reached the point in the year where I'm tired of wearing tights (and you can now disown me as a blogger). 

Getting up in the morning on an "adult schedule" is hard enough for me, but when I check my phone in bed (trying to slowlyyy wake up the brain) & it says THREE DEGREES?! Are you for real? That's when I just go back to bed. I can't think about how to wear enough clothes to keep me warm in that.

Ok, so it's cold, blah blah. One last thing about the weather and I'll shut up- is it SUPER obvious or just kinda how absolutely frigid I was when taking these pictures. I thought I could brave it and that it wasn't really that cold, but oh gosh, it was. The WIND these days! Plus my lil Rebel is slowly dying (editor's note: my photo savvy co-worker investigated and told me my lens is essentially dead. Though I told myself I was DONE spending money for the month, new lens city here I come!) so these pictures were pretty much miserable to take.

BUT I am beyond excited to be wearing 1 of 2 of the beautiful skirts my girl Andrea's sweet (& talented!) abuela made for me. Andrea's equally sweet Mom makes fabulous table linens (check her out here), and was kind enough to share some of the fabric so I could have a couple new skirts! Talk about wonderful friends! I seriously cannot get over the gorgeous patterns in this fabric. I haven't blogged an outfit with my 2nd skirt, but you can see it here.
I am not exaggerating when I say I have been living in this scarf, stolen from my sister, that is the biggest comfiest scarf I own. It's amazing how certain colors can match when you want it bad enough. Ditto with the sweater though really, a hand-me-down from Shelby's ex-Hipster wardrobe, thanks Shel!

This ring is a giveaway win from Pretty Cat Vintage, via Messages on a Napkin. I've been lucky enough to win a couple giveaways from her blog, which always results in some amazingly curated vintage items, that I could never find on my own! 

Other things going on this week:

It's been a very busy but FUN week, watching The Bachelor (who's your girl???), cooking, visiting with old friends, and tonight celebrating a birthday & a friend going away. Whew! I need to remind myself I need personal evenings not filled with activity, or by Thursday I am a very sleepy girl!

I've been working out at the YMCA almost every day and loving it! Last night I went to Zumba for the first time in a while, I forgot how much i LOVE it and can't help but laugh out loud while doing it.

This week I also booked flights for myself, Huntee, and my brother Amir to go home the first weekend of March because my brother Tarif is starring in Shrek the musical as Donkey! I am so incredibly proud of him, and excited to see the show. Let the countdown begin!

Hope it warms up for you, because this is a great early spring look.

3 degrees! I would just roll over and never leave the bed. I'm sorry about your lens; did you have the Rebel t3? You should move down to Texas with me---you already have the prerequisite cowboy boots and love of turquoise accents!
