When It's Cold Outside, I've Got the Month of May

Winter hasn’t been quite what it usually is this year… For starters it has rained for the past few days, leaving us with a green Christmas (or at least a green one, spotted with patches of dirty white).

It’s also been quite mild, with temperatures well into the positives, and I must admit, it’s causing a very springy vibe.

As a matter of fact, it has felt so much like spring here, that yesterday I was channeling a total springtime fairy vibe… And I’m not gonna lie, I dig it!

I pranced through the patches if exposed grass, wondering if any early crocus buds would be poking up through the still frozen ground, and I smelled that unmistakeable smell of spring rain (pretty much a combination of mud & dog poop – I don’t know why they name fabric softener and scented candles after it).

I wore the absolute most comfortable pants in the universe (I’m not even joking right now). These amazing brown harems from Your Big Sister’s Closet are everything, and I felt like I was floating.

It’s rare for me to find a great pair of harem pants that actually drape loosely and move so beautifully on my size 24ish bottom, but these truly surprised me!

I mean, they are ridiculously comfortable. Like… I can’t even describe them… And I’m not gonna hold out on you… I was going commando here, and it was glorious.

I paired them with a cute, short sleeved, cropped sweatshirt that I’ve had kicking around for ages, sparkly gold flats, a pretty flower ring, and get this – a headpiece. Only… It wasn’t meant to be one.

It’s actually a bib necklace which just so happens to (especially when paired with the perfect pair of flowy harem pants) double flawlessly as a spring goddess headdress, because who’s gonna stop me!?

I know winter will be back in full force soon, but until then, I’m enjoying this little taste of spring when we least expected it, and I’m certainly not complaining about not having to shovel snow!!!

    Holy shit, I found this on a google image search for how to wear harem pants and had to click through. I don’t usually comment but these are great shots! Whole thing reminds me of a modern take on a classical painting. Just glows. Really graceful, really beautiful. The necklace/headpiece is kickass too, especially with the way your hair is cut. I’m not brave enough for that stuff so I’ll have to live vicariously theough your awesome.

    Ok, that’s enough word stumbling /borderline catcalling (from a straight, girl, painter?) from this rando now. Hope you have a great day!
