I am so excited about the weather getting warmer! Every day I watch the snow withdraw from our backyard, an inch at a time. It is actually really warm in the sun, even though the temperature is no more than 10 celcius (52 F). Our cats are nuts about the sun - the veterans Blue and Cassie took their first strolls outside on our back deck yesterday, and Cassie even attempted to walk on the snow this morning - I wish I had had my camera there and then! It's only Blue and Cassie that get to go outside. Their lack of agility and old age pretty much guarantee that they wouldn't attempt to do anything foolish, like visit our next door neighbour's German shepherd.
This cotton bubble skirt is another H&M purchase that has survived a couple of wardrobe purges in the past two years or so. It is not the most practical piece of clothing, but I think it is a lot of fun. Yes, bubble skirts make one look hip-heavy regardless of how scrawny one is but I think that is the whole point. Bubble skirts belong to the same family as shoulder pads - as long as you don't take yourself too seriously, you can pull them off. It is all about having fun with proportions. Clothes like these are tools to trick Mother Nature and what she gave you.
