Late Spring

OK, I’m going to talk about the weather again… Is it just us, or has it been a weird spring for everybody all over the world as well? It’s been overcast and humid and rainy since January. It is so decidedly un-springlike that I had to wear some pastel colors although pastels wash me out, otherwise it would feel just like fall with my black and blue and brown. I always prefer rain over sun, but even I start to long for some sunshine after three whole months of grey skies.

Friday of the Year

The weather has been really nice lately. Chilly in the morning and night, but during the day it’s always in the upper 70’s, breezy, warm, and clear. I’m suspicious of it. Let me check the forecast… Yep. A cold front is coming next week, with what looks like a lot of rain. Of course.

Anyway, I don’t know if it’s because the weather’s been nicer or because I’ve just gone through a whole month in jeans and neutrals, but suddenly I’m all about dresses and skirts and colors (well, not a whole lot of colors, I don’t want to shock myself, but definitely more than I wore last month). Maybe it is the weather. I read a post on Tumblr that says “November is like the Thursday of the year”, and while that shouldn’t make any damned sense, it just does, you know? November is long and dreary and we all want it to end. And if November is the Thursday of the year, then early December would be Friday, so I’m breaking out the dresses and skirts to celebrate. And then the holiday season would be… the weekend, I guess?

P/S: Of course, I posted this on a Thursday, which makes it even more confusing.
