Georgia's weather is an enigma I'll never understand and that pisses me off. For as much as it was beautiful yesterday, I woke up to snow today. It all melted by the afternoon when these pictures were taken, but it was pretty miserable to be outside during most of the day. Seriously, Mother Nature? You and I had a deal -- you would do your thing and make things sunny, and I would try to dress cute everyday.
About the outfit. I don't wear this coat very often and decided to build my outfit around it for The Dress Project. I didn't take very good pictures of the dress by itself, so you can see an example of it in one of my before pictures linked above. I liked this combination -- green and turquoise are such cheerful spring colors.

Anyways, today was a pretty good day. Hung out with Jeremiah and some of our best friends at our favorite restaurant/bar (and our favorite waiter was there too). Sometimes all you need is chicken fingers and good conversation.

signature1 by you.
