a happy accident


So, actually, I had't planned on posting up this outfit at all. But I got home from work around six thirty and the sunshine was just steaming straight into my living room--making patterns on the floor and casting pretty light all over everything. I had to take pictures. (it looks like i have no arm above, ha ha ha) And then the sun went down, so I only snapped a few.

It wasn't a revolutionary outfit, but I liked wearing it and got quite a few compliments at work. Plus, it was a little bit of an ego boost to be able to wear this skirt again. Because in all honesty, I know I gained a tiny tiny bit of weight because of Architecture studio(s); I was eating out a lot and was constantly making various coffee/convenience store runs all the time. Now I can work out and cook my own food a bit. Anyways, I lost that extra weight and fit it again--because I'll tell you, I didn't gain a lot, but this skirt is very, very, very unforgiving. I could pretty much zip it, but daaaang, I could not sit down.




I adore the sunshine, and the little hints of Spring. The trees are budding! I also wanted to thank every person that's followed me. I've been blogging for only about a month and a half, so every person and every comment is important to me and makes me smile. I want to be able to interact through more than just comments, so I've gotten a Twitter:
