note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew? However, it's still been challenging lately, for more reasons than just my phone, and my sister invited me to go outside with her. Th

In Which I Am Ridiculously Happy

I had my moments today, but for the most part, I was ridiculously happy. Why?

Because I was wearing this:

Purple tanktop, layered with a looser green one. Denim bermuda shorts. Gray shorts. And the best part? BARE FEET! :D
(and no, I didn't wear the stars. Those are decoration. ;)

For some reason, every time I put on a pair of shorts for the first time each year, it makes me SUPER-DUPER HAPPY. I guess that's because summer is my favorite season, and shorts remind me of summer. Never mind that it was freezing today, in the 40's. Never mind that it's only March. Never mind that in Colorado, spring doesn't arrive till late April or May.

It doesn't matter because when I wear shorts, I know one thing for sure.

Summer is on the way.

[and so is the post about Avary. Stay tuned! :D]


  1. Yea! I dug my flip flops out yesterday to wear to dance. I even had to search for the sunscreen today! =P We even had dinner outside--despite the fact that we all had chill bumps and ended up going inside for desert. Never mind that it only got up to 60, yippie for spring! =DDD

    I'm so looking forward to your post on Avary! =)

  2. Yay for summer and summer clothes!! =) xo.

  3. I was wearing capri's a few days ago, I didn't get cold either. It was awesome. I can't wait till Much and I can take a walk and take our flip flops off to feel the hot, hot, HOT sidewalk on our feet. It'll be awesome. :)

    All that being said... it snowed today. *sigh*

  4. Is that really what you wore today? Was it hard to find those items on Polyvore? It looks like a really fun way to do fashion posts without showing your face. ;)

  5. Cute outfit! I really like it. :)
