Sometimes opposites work together. I feel like that's the case with this outfit. I never would have thought to wear a Winter scarf and corduroy leggings with this very Spring-like combination of a floral cami and pastel yellow cardigan, but desperate times called for desperate measures. This unseasonably cool weather we've been experiencing forced me to think outside the box in my clothing combinations, and this outfit was the result.
I'm typing all this out as I sit in front of my computer wearing sandals and short sleeves. Yes, the weather has FINALLY taken a turn toward the warmer side, and by warmer, I mean hot. We went from 50's last week to 90's this week, so naturally, I'm complaining about the heat now. This is one of those cases where opposites are not working together. I need some in-between weather, like temperatures in the 70's. And not just a day here or there. I want a continuous, extended time period of that type of weather. Oh, and I want a rocking bod and naturally tan skin too. Somehow, I don't see any of that in my future.
I guess life is all about balance, taking the good with the bad. The cold weather sucked, but it had it's advantages. For one, I didn't have to deal with these white, hairy legs of mine. I mean, I still shaved my legs every day in the Winter because that shit literally grows back in an hour, but I didn't have to be as thorough. It was okay to miss some spots because I was just going to cover them up with pants, tights, boots, etc. With the warmer weather this week, I've had to get back into the groove of getting rid of every single hair. Although, I haven't been completely comfortable showing my legs yet. Those bitches are blinding white, not to mention I need to get used to being naked again. Don't worry, I don't mean literally naked. It just feels that way when I first start shedding the clothes. Things like bare feet and bare shoulders almost seem foreign after months of being covered up. So, I've been shedding the clothes gradually. Maxi skirts have been my best friends this week.
Despite these trivial troubles, I am enjoying the warmer temperatures. I've been able to wear some of my new Spring purchases and the budding landscape has provided some great backdrops for recent photo shoots. Now, if I could just find the time to blog, so I can share these photos. My spare time this week has been spent outdoors working in the garden, walking the dogs, and taking in the fresh air with Jerry and the kids. It's been great, but I've missed sharing my thoughts on here. Each day, I planned on blogging, and each day passed without the time needed to sit down and collect my thoughts. I finally found some time today. I think I needed to get back my bearings with this change in weather. I just needed to find my balance again.
