We're in blissful weather now, cool in the mornings with promises of jacket-shedding weather in afternoons, sunny and puddle-less. In no time the trees and bushes will be all a-haze with buds making noses run with allergies, but I can hardly care.
Today was exactly the kind of day I always hope to have. Besides the weather that was cooperative and lovely, I spent it walking around town gathering things like small flower bunches (from a store with a little corgi leaping with joy in the window) and books that I never intend to really read, but can't leave behind because the typography and designs on the spine are too gorgeous to leave behind.
My hair has faded quite a bit, it's almost back to my normal color, and I'm left with decisions to make about my appointment next week. Do I keep the auburn or go back to identifying with Snow White and return to dark locks? Honestly, I'll probably try the reddish hue again, because it's something I've become a little bit fond of even if I don't always feel myself with it.
Also (atrocious way to start a sentence, let along a paragraph), do you ever have days where your outfit looks truly the way you always hoped it would in person, only to have it photograph less-than-perfectly? I suppose it's what people mean by 'editorial' when used in terms of describing outfits, or something. Somehow, probably because of the edible color of the skirt, nothing seemed to come out exactly representing how it felt to wear it in life.
Oh well. I can't be too irritable about it, since I ended up peeling off my tights in the car. My legs, free at last, have never been so happy in the sun.
