blue skies are coming

Today was one of "those days." Those days? you ask. Why, yes I answer, a mischievous and all-knowing grin planted on my face. Ah, yes, thooose days you reply. We have a moment.

So yeah. You know. "Those days." Am I being annoying yet? (Yes, you answer.) (Silently, of course.) I felt very removed from everything. Not wanting to engage in anything. (They sometimes call it "anti-social." Me? Anti-social? Pfffft.) Just observing my surroundings, eavesdropping on conversations (slash, trying to block them out and take a nap. Which I successfully succeeded in doing during a class I actually enjoy. Whoops.) I don't know. Do you ever have those days? Where you, unintentionally, are really cynical of all your surroundings? That little voice was beating in my head, commenting on everything around me. It's a sign that 1) spring has to come 2) high school has to end 3) there are pots of gold at the end of the rainbow!

This sweater is so marvelous. I like to think that it makes people happy. At least, it makes me happy. THAT'S ALL THAT COUNTS. Hello, kids section at Value Village. It's weirdly comforting knowing that some wack child's snotty and drool-y body inhabited this sweater before me. Actually. Now that I think of it... ew.Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Half way through the week! And, um, hi there March! You certainly sprung up there, didn't you! Ah! Jolly good fun! I wish you all imaginary suns and blue skies and singing birdies!

What's been the highlight of your week thus far?

I can't imagine how that sweater could do anything but make people happy.

I'm having one of those days right now. Any chance you want to come by and push me out of my parked car where I have been brooding for the past half hour?

Do you own every single colour possible of tights? And do they go with *everything*??

I'm sometimes like that, it depends on wether or not my friends are near or if I'm in a day-dreamy mood.

Love your yellow painted nails! And they go with your outfit too. Haha.

Have a wonderful Spring!

Ali said...

'those days' are the days I put on my cutest mini dress, comfiest hoodie and stompiest rain boots. It makes me feel like a four year old and that if I put my hood up, no one can see me. It's best to find a way to enjoy 'those days' and make them 'me days'!

Georgie said...

Ahh that jumper is awesome! Love the shoes too, and am verr jealous of your sewing skills the skirt is so pretty!

CDG said...

Further proof that the little kids section in any store is better than the adult section! I want to steal this sweater so bad! All the pom poms are amazing. This makes me want to color and make forts out of blankets and read doctor suess. You're so right, this sweater makes me happy =D
And don't worry girl, I have plenty of "those days."

cillaey said...

anyway, mind to visit back? exchange link, perhaps? :)

WOW, this is outfit is so bright! Not used to see something like that during our cold and grey winter over here... Damn, i need to add some color in my life :D Highlights of the last week were math and english pre-exams. Yup, i needed the whole weekend to recover. But holidays aren't that far anymore and after that, there are only some exams left and schools over forevaaa (which is actually sad).

Lloyda said...
