Lingering Still


Today. it. poured. again. But that's okay--according to the weather forecast for the next week, that's supposed to stop after tomorrow. But other than it being a little bit miserable outside, I had a lovely day. I braved the rain to go to Goodwill with Sarah and found treasures. Real treasures. Well, things I was actually looking for. I plan on posting up pictures this weekend.


I was not terribly excited about this outfit. because there are so many things I have that I want to wear sans tights! Or that feel too flowy or summery to wear while it's pouring.



Not gonna lie, it was fun posing about with the umbrella. And it was fun being on this silly wood ledge. I did gymnastics for a sizeable chunk of my childhood/tween years, so I love balancing on things. It's the little things in life. And this is one of my favorite jackets. It's a really good transitional one, since there are 1/2 sleeves. Perfect for having a cardigan underneath or bare forearms.
