Snow Day

Shirt - Thrifted
Purse - Thrifted
Jeans - So...
Ballet Flats - Kohls
Belt - Thrifted
Necklace - Plato's Closet

I had the idea to use this skirt as a shirt several months ago, but didn't have the courage to try until recently. I put a white tee-shirt under it because I didn't want to wear a sleeveless shirt, and the belt gives it a waist. :)

We were supposed to have snow storms yesterday, but after half a day of flurries had collected on the ground it rained. Luckily today we got some more snow. Now the ground is covered in a mixture of slippery slush/ice and snow. Earlier today, before it snowed again, it felt like spring - I wish it were. I don't know what I shall do once it gets too cold for me to venture outside to take pictures. I'm nearly freezing as it is, and I have a strange inkling that my cold is due to my going outside without a coat on...

But the snow is lovely, and reminds me of last November when I was writing my NaNoWriMo novel, Audra. that was the first, and - to date - only novel I've ever finished. I still don't know how exactly I did it - the characters just sort of took over. I put a part of myself into all of them and "all I could do was trot along behind them with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what they said and did."

I would sit in my room as the rain/snow fell outside my window and write away - it was so peaceful (most of the time). For once I was finally able to put some my thoughts and emotions down on paper. I still miss it...

  1. I love the skirt as a shirt idea. You pulled it off well, super cute. I love to write when its raining too, has a calming effect. I relate to the words spilling on the page feeling.
