24. Assemblog du Jour #5: Who Wears Short Shorts?

I have always had a really strange hang up about my legs. They are thick and muscular and whiter than fresh snow. Trust me, I am not winning any Betty Grable contests. I have been ashamed of my legs for most of my life and have stuck to wearing jeans for most of my life.

However, with this new move into scalding hot weather coming up, I’ve been debating whether it is better to have my chunky legs exposed or to be a human sweat sprinkler.

The shorts won.

Besides! Shorts have gotten so cute since the last time I shopped for them! Look at this adorable plaid! (This pair is super comfortable, by the way. Old Navy jeans might not fit me well but their shorts are another story.)

22. Distractions make the best distractions

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been a little absent lately. The end of my semester and the GRE are drawing nigh so my face has been firmly planted between the pages of various books. One of my favorite distractions has become Polyvore. It’s like all the best parts of playing Barbies but without the risk of stepping on one of her little plastic shoes!

Sadly, I will probably continue this way until May when everything is over. I promise to resurface once in a while when I come up with an outfit I’m particularly proud of.

Spring is finally starting to … spring. We had 80 degree weather two days ago that has transformed into a beautiful April-like 50-60 range. Jackson and I had a lot of fun running around in the 80 degree heat and then we relaxed with the slider door open for the rest of the day.

Come on, slowpoke! I’ve got things to sniff!

Ahhhh…. this is the life.

21. Assemblog du Jour #3: Has Spring sprung yet?

I love this knapsack. I love things that look like they have a history to them and (even though I’m sure the well-worn look was manufactured) this bag just screams “GUESS WHERE I’VE BEEN” to me. I’d love to carry my books in it to class everyday.

I also love these little bird earrings. Marc Jacobs is so good at whimsy.

 

Spring!
