I'm terribly fickle when it comes to the weather. For a long time I tried very hard not to complain about the current season because I knew that when the winds changed I'd be just as miserable about that, and you can't do anything about it anyway so there is little use in even talking about it. But I can't help myself. Spring is difficult because I am allergic to a lot of things bursting with pollen, and so while I'm overjoyed at the green and lace-topped trees, I'm also busy blowing my nose and nursing a(nother) sinus infection.
But I don't want to neglect this blog too much, so I thought I'd do a teeny little post about some small things I've accumulated recently.
It's all bizarrely girly. I'm really into pink and frills these days, I've a World is a Cupcake kind of mind going on I guess.
-Lace blouse. I've been thinking about buying this thing for months but I kept finding other dresses or blouses that were slightly more amazing at my favorite haunt for vintage. There are usually several items that I have in the back of my mind, and if they're still there on a trip where I don't find anything else, I scoop them up. Sometimes it doesn't work out and I'm destitute about all the outfits that could have been. This one worked out.
-The Beehive 'Alice Blue' perfume. I've been on a perfume kick lately. This is one of three I've been wearing lately. I might have bought it for the package (although really, there was another one that had a pattern on the box I liked more but it didn't smell as nice as this one).
-FrouFrous. I don't know if these are really called that, but when I was little my mom used to make me little hair thingies with netting flowers and glitter on them, so for me that's the name. These are from J. Crew and normally I'd feel stupid about forking over my hard earned cash for something I could probably make but I know I won't. I like to wear them at work when everything else I'm wearing is covered in egg white or flour to feel a little nice.
-Heart sunglasses. I know, they're super twee. But I was under the influence of a girl-date with some of my favorite ladies, and we were all three decked out in floral pastels, and it just happened. I'm okay with this, even if they are a bit typical and expected at this point.
-Bobbi Brown lipstick in 'Mod Pink'. I went in for a different color and found that one to be far too orange for me. I can't resist a good pink, and while I normally reach for NARS 'Niagara' for my every-day lipstick, I was in the mood for something a little bit different, and this one fit the bill.
For good measure, here is a little fish for your evening:
She totally puked on everything this morning, because cats will puke on all the nice things you own, but we still love her. I've taken to running around the house 'going fishing' to find her, or just calling her 'little fish little fish!' which might be sort of insulting for her, but I'm okay with that.
