Gingham and Mint Skirt

What a wonderful Saturday. I always love spring. Flowers and the trees start coming back to life and blooming again BUT. 2 things I don’t like about spring:

  1. Pollen
    I got bad allergies this year since the pollen level over here in Georgia is quite high. The temperature is already in mid the 80’s at times. I bet the scientists and politicians will revert back to the term “global warming” any day now. Remember not long ago, when the crazy winter struck half of the world? Global warming went out of style. Now it is  “climate change”  instead.
  2. Bird Poop
    Since the weather has started getting hotter, at work I like to park underneath the trees so my car won’t get really hot and humid. Apparently birds love my silver color car. Everytime I get off from work and go to my car I always find out my car is being bombarded by bird poop.  It seems they hate me and decided to leave not just one but as many poops as possible. (I counted 10 the other day).
    Those birds remind me of the sneaky laughing birds in the Windex commercials. Argghh!!

Despite of the pollen and bird bombardments, overall my life is wonderful. A friend of mind gave me some free frozen yogurt cards. Not just 1 but 4. My hubby and I get one big container, fill half container with his favorites flavor and the other half of mine. And we eat it in turn while walking to our car.

Free yoghurt vs. bird poop, what a contrast!

Orange and Green Combo

I was a few inches from throwing this tube dress away. Last summer I wore this Forever 21 green tube to our out west road trip.  It’s nice but it gave a bigger illusion in my shoulder area than I wanted. Not just that, it also squeezed the middle part of my body like a burger. Yet, the color was great.

I would like to say thanks to all the fashion bloggers out there who give me inspiration to follow their foot steps. Old clothes become new again. Improvisation.  I started digging through all of my old clothes and giving them life again.

Orange and Green Combo

I got this orange sweater  online at Victoria’s Secret. I bought it a few years back around the month of July. Yes, you are right! You know you make a good decision when you go against the flow. July is the hottest month of the year; when I saw this jacket I knew I MUST get it. It was 80% off.  When other people get dehydrated just looking at the jacket, that’s the best time for me to buy my winter clothes. It’s not just they are a lot cheaper but also nobody wants to touch it (heheh). This scenario also happens with summer clothes in the winter.

The Leopard pump also bought at Victoria’s Secret. I combined several coupons, using my stingy tactic and I got this pair of shoes only for $12. Pat! pat! pat! on my back. I’m so proud of you Suzana-

The necklace was given to me by my dearest Indian co-worker when she visited India last year. She also gave me saree-like skirt and I can’t wait to wear it.

Am I missing something here? Okay, I got the handbag at goodwill. I like it because it’s different. It looks small in the pic but can accommodate a lot of stuff including plates (heheh). See it’s a multifunction handbag. You can also use it as a place mat.
