Winterspring!

Dang I am behind on posting! I have been posting to my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/whyilikerainbows but I really need to catch up here. So with that in mind here are my latest winter-spring wears! During my monthlong travels in January and February I picked up a couple new outfits in Boston- it was so fun to shop with my dear old friend Trianis from college, and we happened upon a wicked Anthro sale that we couldn't pass up! Also... I cut my hair even shorter! Laugh In the spirit of lightening the load overall the hair had to go too. Shortest it's even been and I'm honestly loving it!

Dallas!

I visited my dear friends in Dallas this weekend, my first time really experiencing the big city, and had a blast. Went to a swanky holiday party, out on the town, and ate some delicious food. The weekend called for a bit more upscale dressing than bumming around Greensboro, and I was up for the challenge. This is my very first LBD! The fit is not bad for having zero time for alterations. It has a sexy gold zipper all the way up the back too! I am wearing my Grandma's beautiful chartreuse pearls and clip on earrings Happy I love this rusty red blazer as well - it needs to come out to play more!

Birk chic!

I played tennis after many years of not playing, and needless to say I overdid it, fell on the clay (played for 4 hours!!), then fell again the next day in my platform sandals walking on the sidewalk in my neighborhood and messed up my ankle. Major bummer, because I am so psyched about playing tennis again!

You realize very quickly when you sprain your ankle that you own absolutely no practical, comfortable shoes except sneakers... and I have a big trip coming up and need something walkable. So, I have jumped on the Birk trend! This is my very first pair of Birks, if you can believe it! (I had a fake pair in college but that doesn't count). I have been wearing these every single day, with my sexy compression stocking... :O I got the cutest, most versatile pair I could find and I am very pleased.

They also happen to be very in vogue right now with all the fashionistas...

I'm sure I will get another bright colored pair sometime to add to the comfort collection!
