A cold front has moved in, which means we have some real spring weather (as opposed to just summer). Checking the weather and getting dressed lately has been fun, as I found some new ways to wear my spring-y new items.

Outfit #1 is what I wore to the grocery store today. Queen Mum has inspired me to dress better when grocery shopping. *waving to Kim* I wonder what the checkers think now when they see me showing up in a full 3-piece pattern mix, lol! I'm wearing my new Wamart floral cardi done up as a top with my leopard ON scarf *waving to Suz, my scarf twin* to give me a collar. It also hides the fact that the floral doesn't match up on the closure of the sweater. On the bottom are my old faithful Gap Outlet skinnies and Jessica Simpson nude gladiator sandals. Monty make three prints going on at once. I've been wearing my pearl stud earrings more than ever, perhaps because with ALGO, that's all I need.

Outfit #2 I wore yesterday (also chilly). This is the first time I've worn this thrifted plaid shirt with my blue jeans and the first time I tucked it in (semi-tuck, back is out). I liked it a lot. I wore my leopard flats and carried Monty yesterday too.

Both of these outfits score a 9 or 10 on the Happiness Scale *waving at Jayne*. This may be in part because I'm wearing "new" items (cardi and plaid shirt) in a first time combination. When I get something new that I really love, I tend to wear it a LOT (like you guys hadn't noticed that, lol!) and stay awake nights trying to figure out different pairings for it. The bright colors and pattern mixing make me really happy too. And the weather. This is really too good to be true. Usually it's over 100F by now!

The last picture is what happens when you put a package of hot dogs on the grill and then get on YLF *just for a second*. Don't let this be you! If you've already burned food for the cause of fashion, share with us; I'm sure we could all use a laugh today!
Thanks for your comments/suggestions.
