Chasing Spring.



The weather is bad again. I am all rainy and soggy running around in my keds, still waiting for it to be summer. I try not to constantly talk about the weather, to be always waiting for it to get better, but it seems in recent years that it agitates my mood more than it used to.

In the meantime I have sunny pictures to look at while I constantly check the 10-day weather report. I stared at this dress on etsy for ages, and when it went on sale I snapped it up instantly. It's different than I thought it would be, less fitted than I expected somehow, which is kid of a nice surprise anyway. It's quite a tattered little thing, but I couldn't wait any longer to wear it. I stitched up the hem a bit in places, but left a tiny stain and some of the teeny bits that are a bit raggedy. It's another one of the hoarded spring/summer dresses from the winter, and I love it if only for its funny buttons and color.

  2. I'm so happy you're updating so frequently! It's lovely to have a new post from you every few days :)
    I know what you mean about the weather dictating the mood...and I never used to be like that, either. I was blissfully ignorant whether it was raining or sunny or what, but now I'm always checking the forecast and hoping for sun and warmth!
    I love your style, and that peach dress really suits you :)

    I know just how you are feeling about the weather. I seriously check the 10 day forecast a million times a day! I just hate when they change what was supposed to be a nice day...
