My first grade teacher taught us a lot of little poems and verses. She was a treasure trove of them, now that I look back on it. She knew a little bit of verse for each month of the year, and while I don't remember them all, I do remember learning, "April showers bring May flowers." Which, at the time, didn't make much sense to me, because it never seemed to rain in southern California back then, and the flowers were already abloom.
Interestingly, we've now had more than 3 days of rain here in San Diego, this April (which is quite a lot). The last couple of days have been intermittently wet, cold, and windy - and they've sent me digging through my warm-cozies again. Here's what I wore yesterday:
Sweater: Navajo Hoodie, Future Standard
Boots: Alberto Fermani Slouch Boot
I should note the forecast for the coming week promises to bring back our more familiar spring weather.
Let me report that I have emerged from the Kate Spade F&F sale unscathed. But I blame the inordinate amount of time it took me to file my taxes (yes, I know, I do like to push things pretty late). I'd actually planned to at least pick up the Elements of Style necklace, but I'm afraid by the time I looked up from H&R Block Online, it was well past midnight, and my window of opportunity had already closed.
The disappointment hasn't quite hit me yet. But when it does, I expect I'll have to run out and grab the Pieced Column Dress, to console myself. *cough* What? It's three times the price of the necklace? Well, serves me right, for procrastinating, doesn't it? That'll teach me.
