Random Sunday Ramblings

All this past week, despite intermittent rain showers, it remained near 70 degrees outside. I was planning with glee the outfit post I was going to shoot this Sunday, featuring a very cute dress. And then today, it is only 45 degrees out. I know, I know, for most of the country that’s pretty warm. But for me, acclimated to Texas weather, that is COLD. And so dress feature is postponed. Hey, I like cute clothes, but I’m not going to freeze my butt off for the sake of fashion. I’m in corduroy skinnies and a floral thermal shirt right now.

purple cords and flowery thermal

I’m also wearing wool socks, a sweatshirt over the thermal, and no makeup, haha. Definitely more concerned with warmth than being a fashionista right now.

On the other hand, being cooped indoors today means I’m getting lots of screenprinting done. Witness:

Custom tote for a giveaway winner, going out in the mail tomorrow.

Lovebirds print, Valentines version of my Windborne print. Hitting shop tomorrow.

Also, since this post is a whole bunch of random, here are some things that have made me smile today:

  • The boyfriend nabbed the last case of cream soda for me at the store when he went for Superbowl snacks.
  • Leftover homemade curry for lunch. Nom!
  • The PuppyBowl!
  • Seeing little green shoots start to appear in the flowerbeds from where I planted the flower bulbs – yay!
