The past couple of days have been a sigh of relief for me. I can't be specific just yet, but I can honestly say that I feel a lot happier than I have in a long, long time.These days, my happiness occasionally materializes into mini-celebrations such as wearing bright colors despite the chill in the air or impromptu oatmeal and tea breaks accompanied by a spot of reading. Don't mock me now if you don't think eating lumpy cinnamon sugar oats while re-reading Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers isn't your cuppa.
I'm really surprised that I actually got a lot of wear with this paperbag skirt. I picked a color that I don't usually wear, but since I made it, I've actually paired it with a lot more than I thought I could. (see here, here, and here.) I used to think that I could only wear contrasting colors, but sticking to a color family actually looks great as long as I pepper it with bits of contrast (belt, bag, shoes).
*P.S. My lovely fruit charm bracelet was given to me by Johanna, one of my favorite bloggers. :) How she knew that I'd been wanting a charm bracelet is a mystery to me! I must be readable as hell, or she's just got a great sense of style! She's gorgeous, crafty, and such a sweetheart. Do check her blog out! Thanks, Johanna!
