Winter Dreaming

It’s almost winter! Okay, that’s a bit of a lie, but I’m feeling really inspired for the winter season, leading to these lovely outfits down here. As you can probably tell, I’m one of those people who like to wear dresses and skirts year round (my shins are the only part of my legs that really get cold and I have a passionate love for tights), but floral jeans deserve much respect for bringing some spring flare into freezing temperatures. Enjoy! ūüôā

(Un)Calmly Waiting

If you don’t live somewhere on the¬†non-northern hemisphere (or perhaps it’s more of a vertical split in¬†the¬†planet that determines weather), like, for example,¬†Australia, then you’ve probably realized that autumn is on its way. Unfortunately for me, it seems to be taking a leisurely¬†stroll¬†to my neighborhood when it could have just sped over in its Ferrari. So, until autumn does actually hit its destination, I’ll have to resign myself to making Polyvore sets of all the outfit ideas I’d like to try when the tree leaves get crispy.

Sorry if you live in the koala’s native country, in which the sentiments of this post are slightly irrelevant. If it makes you feel better, you still get to brag about your geographical superiority. Being a country and a continent at the same time totally triumphs over every other country or continent’s feats. Though it does make me wonder what it must be like to be New Zealand. I don’t think most Americans even know what a Zealandia is…curse you World Geography (which you can probably tell I did poorly in)!

An Ode to Purple Minis

I think I have a problem.¬†Said problem is¬†purple, a mini skirt, and wishes it were made out of actual corduroy fabric. Yes, it’s a “cute” skirt (in theory) and looks great with hot pink socks and a pair of Chucks, but something about it just rubs me the wrong way. It’s like that person you meet who is perfectly nice to you, yet you just can’t bring yourself to actually want to befriend them. Of course, pretty much everybody’s had this experience, so there’s nothing really wrong with my issue. Well, nothing other than my uttermost¬†refusal to actually part ways with my skirt. Alas, it’s an itch that I just can’t scratch. On the bright side, though, it’s an itch that styles well.
