Shorts in February



Yesterday, I was convinced spring had hit North Carolina. It was in the 60s, my allergies had flared up and I was very comfortable wearing shorts. This evening, frozen rain has arrived. Very wintry weather, I tell you what. North Carolina weather is all over the place. It's okay. Keeps things interesting. But yesterday? The weather was delicious.


I wore the most adorable flats ever. They were given to me by my sister for Christmas. Such cuteness. In the above picture, I am wearing the flats, but you might not have noticed. Are you looking at the adorable dog instead of the adorable flats? Understandable.


Here we go. Dog is out of the frame so we can focus on those little multi-colored bows. They are magical.


Stripes, sweater, shorts = terribly comfortable weekend wear. I've been under the weather (so many weather references in this blog post!) and it's nice to stay comfy and casual. Excellent napping attire.


Extreme close-up of freshwater pearl earring. Extreme close-ups are only acceptable when there is jewelry involved.Perhaps tomorrow morning they will match the snow on the ground. Or maybe the sun will be out again. Who knows? (I suppose I could look at the weather report, but where's the fun in that?)

I was definitely distracted by the cute dog! But what cute shoes! And I'm so envious of 60 degree weather! Shorts in February? So jealous.

Of course I noticed the shoes - adorable dog spotted in first pic of course! - and how very clever that you've co-ordinated the colour in the bows to the dog's tongue ;)

Weather here bonkers too - but when isn't the UK full of bonkers weather. They've just announced worst water shortages for 30 years - so what did they do with all that melted snow, eh? x

Your dog is so cute! It is a struggle to pick what's cuter - puppy or the shoes! Lovely gift :)

Hope you aren't feeling under the weather for long!

The weather is incredibly fickle over here as well. We had snow flurries over the weekend.. whereas today I went bare-legged in a springtime dress!
