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!

The weather is getting warmer and before the temperature gets really hot and humid, I must hurry up and wear all of my winter clothes.

When you have big thighs (this is according to Stacy London from the TLC show “What Not To Wear”) you should not wear a pair of jeans that look like they have been scratched or ripped by a tiger. Because the design can emphasize your big thighs.
I want to disregard her advice because I like the wild look of tiger scratches on my thighs. The scratched look isn’t that bad, is it? It’s just a lil’ baby tiger scratch.

This pair of jeans used to look really good on me before I gained 20lbs. I think I’m in denial. Now they are little bit tight especially at my bottom (blame it on doing too many squats). Again by looking at these jeans on me,  I’m convinced more than ever that I DO need a pair of  jeans/pants with a real flare at the bottom to balance my thighs. I have found a pair and will post a photo in the future.

I got this cute Ann Taylor coat on eBay for $8. I don’t even know this coat style is still in or not. But who cares, right? As long as it looks good and feels good, go for it. I like the crispiness of pink and white on this outfit.

Since I don’t plan to grow any plants or flowers this year, this coat can be a good way to indulge my passion for flowers. Wish I could find another coat with bell peppers or tomatoes printed in it.
