To snow, or not to snow?

The weather has not made up its mind what it wants to do. It snows like mad for fifteen minutes, and then the sun comes out and melts all the snow away, and then the clouds take over and dump again, and then everything gets depressed and gray and mediocre. It’s driving me nuts. I want it to snow already! In big flurries. Until we can’t see anything but white.

But knowing Washington’s weather, it’ll probably just give up and rain, then freeze, and give us all weather that is neither pretty nor safe, and we’ll be stuck at home because the roads are slicker than snot, but there’s nothing fun to do because the snow melted.

And I know there are people who need to drive places, but I really want to be snowed in.

You know, the last time I was dramatically emotional about the weather on my blog, the weather decided to listen to me. Maybe it’ll happen again?

And yes, I was very cold when I took off my coat. The things I do for you. The frostbite I subject myself to. The dripping snow down my back that I suffer. The wind and the rain and the snow and the scary fat squirrels! I take a lot of risks for this blog.

… okay, maybe not.

But, you know, I would never go outside in this cold and stand by a fence for twenty minutes without a coat on for any other reason. I’m not that weird.

Or… maybe I am that weird.

Don’t ask me what’s up with the face. I don’t know. It’s just happened, okay? I can’t control my face. It does whatever it wants to do, usually without my permission.

I’m still wearing a watch! Not that I actually look at it for the time or anything. Really. I forget it’s there and I ask someone else what time it is. And then feel stupid because I’m wearing a watch and I am mostly capable of reading the time from its rose-colored face.

And yes. I am wearing these shoes again. In case you hadn’t noticed.

I have a confession: this skirt is just a tad bit too small. It’s a good skirt to wear when I don’t want to eat much,  because the waist is just snug enough that it presses my stomach in and then I feel really full after about five bites of food.

But then I unbutton the side and I can eat more. Because I love food more than tiny-waisted skirts, even if they are made out of amazing.

And the last time I wore this shirt, my post made the front page of WordPress.

Not that, you know, that’s a hint or anything.

Just sayin’.

I hope you all have a fantastic Tuesday!

    You think your weather is crazy? It snowed three days ago, then was 60 degrees two days later, and last night we had tornadoes sirens going off at 3 am. It’s supposed to be January, but I have a feeling it’s actually March and I just slept through a couple months.

    In other news, I love that shirt 🙂 And your watch. And the belt. In fact, I love the whole outfit.

    I love the skirt, and I love your winter coat1 😀 I want a similar one!

    Over here it snowed again, so we have about thirty centimetres of snow on the ground now… As if we needed more, LOL. The weather in winter never seems to be good enough; too cold, not cold enough, too much snow, not enough, rain, blizzard, what the heck?!

      It’s… I think Old Navy? I got it at Goodwill, but I am pretty sure the brand is Old Navy. It’s really nice and warm (and also stylish, which is a huge plus. :D)

      Weather is so temperamental! Oh well. Such is life. At least sometimes it can be fun, right? It gives us something to tell stories about. 😀

    Looking beautiful as always! I hope it snows there for you (I’m jealous you actually get snow!) and I am absolutely loving the skirt. It’s so pretty and twirly! <33
    The colour of your coat is to die for too!

      Thank you, dear! It finally did last night, and it’s still coming down! I’m quite excited. I may attempt an outfit post in the weather, or I may just sit here and watch the snow and be lazy. 😀
      Thank you!!

    That skirt is awesome. I definitely can relate with unbuttoning thrift skirts so you can eat more, though! Especially during the holidays when I feel like I’m eating constantly.

    • Mara

      I just discovered that one of the thrift stores close to me has 99 cent Mondays for clothes. I don’t know if it’s every Monday, but the day I happened to go, all of the clothes were 99 cents! Which means this is now my favorite thrift store. 😉
      Thank you!

    I’m going to cut to the chase: you have two options. One, allow me to steal your entire wardrobe and your coffee making skills. Or two, adopt me. I think I’m still legally a child, so we can make it work, right…? But seriously, that shirt is amazing. And now I really want purple tights…

    • Mara

      I’ll take option two. Adoption. We could totally make it work. 😀 You’d be my favorite child.
      Isn’t it awesome? I had forgotten about this shirt until I was thinking about how I wanted to wear the skirt, and going through the few black shirts I have. I want more like it.
      Try Target! Target is awesome for cheap, generally durable tights.

    “Not that, you know, that’s a hint or anything.” hahahahahah!!!! Right! 😛 This outfit definitely deserves to be on the front page of WordPress though. This skirt is a dream! For some reason, it reminds me of Scotland (probably because of the pattern 😛 yeah..probably :P) The shirt is so cute and honestly, if I owned these shoes I’d make a stick charm so that they would never leave my legs! Practical, no? 😛
    By the way, your hair looks so nice! 🙂
