No more shoes in the spring rain

After work my shoes needed to come off immediately. Then my entire outfit because it was so intensely uncomfortable. My skirt is cute I guess, but not worth having to pull it down and adjust it every 2 seconds. Plus the fly makes the whole thing all, wonky and wrinkly. It needs tights to smooth it out, ugh. Say goodbye to this skirt until the fall.
These pictures were actually taken once the rain had started to fall and the wet ground felt so cool under my feet. It was that kind of rain you read about in epic novels like The Lord of the Rings, in Fangorn Forest. Ok, so maybe I pretended my backyard was Fangorn while I sat in the door on my porch and devoured eggs and read The Two Towers. What, cause you've never done that? Back to the point, it was a perfect spring rain to enjoy barefoot.Cooperative sweater, AA blouse, Lily Pulitzer thrifted skirt

  2. Oh, your little sweater is cute! I actually really love this outfit (even without shoes). I guess I think of all those items as really you. But it's funny how things that look great in pictures can be driving you nuts in real life... and vice versa.

    Reading on the porch in the rain while eating sounds completely dreamy! I'm looking forward to visiting my parents, who have a porch now, and doing just that!

  3. Your backyard could be Fangorn forest, it's so nice and green! I imagine being in places from books a lot too. :)

    Your top is so nice, it looks lovely with the dainty necklaces. It's a pity the skirt is uncomfortable, but it still looks nice. :)

  9. Your garden looks like a lovely place to be in the summer! Most gardens in Australia completely dry out and go brown in summer.

  10. Fangorn Forest FTW. You are the cutest. I want to sit on your porch and read LotR with you!! ha Your skirt looks super pretty but I totally understand how annoying skirts like that can be. Not worth it sometimes.

  12. I hate being the bearer of bad news... really, I do. The Book Revue won't close but it's almost certain to move out of town. They had a long-term lease with an understanding landlord who agreed to accept only 75% of the rent required under the lease, but the property was just sold and the new owner (whom I know: he's a greedy bum) is insisting they now pay full rent. The bookstore can't afford to do that and is being pushed out. That would be very sad. In addition to being a good bookstore, it's a social meeting-place and cultural center.

  16. Spring and summer rain showers are the best, and reading while the rain falls outside is one of my favorite things to do. That skirt is really cute, and I just really like this whole look!

  19. You have the most beautiful eyes!! Love your layered necklaces! And that black top. I want more light sleeveless things in my wardrobe.

  20. I love your slightly sheer black top. It'd be so nice to have one like that for the summer. It looks really nice with that green skirt! Too bad it didn't cooperate!

  21. You always look so lovely. I'm sick of using lovely because I feel like that's what everyone uses... but honestly!

    I have a skirt just like that (from Old Navy), and it always drives me bonkers. Hope you're well! :)
