One of the presents that Chris got me for Valentine's Day was this vintage scarf he found on Etsy! I was super excited because A. I need more scarves and didn't even think to ask for one and B. He picked it out himself based on what I wear and own. Plus...it's vintage!!!
I always liked how floral print and stripes looked when paired together, so I decided on this striped dress to wear with the scarf. This is one of those things that I bought over a year ago and just never got around to wearing. That used to happen a lot more than it should've. I have cut back on how much clothing I buy in the past year or so. I'm not sure if it was a conscious decision to stop buying so many clothes. I don't really limit myself. I just decided that I should only buy something if I'm very certain that I will wear it, and wear it more than once, especially if it costs a lot. I remember reading about how you should judge how much you spend on something by how much you'll wear it. So if you buy a really nice jacket for $100 and wear it ten times, then it costs $10 per wear, which is a pretty good value. It's all about getting your money's worth, I suppose.
There is so much snow everywhere that it's hard to get pictures where I'm not squinting. All of the light just reflects back from the snow and directly into my eyeballs and makes it hard to keep them open. If there are a lot of shots of me looking down or away, then that is probably the reason why...at least until the snow melts. I'm hoping that'll happen soon. It's not that pretty anymore now that it's all dirty from cars and foot traffic and whatnot. Plus it's annoying when a lot of two lane roads are still reduced to one lane.
Although the winter seems to be taking forever to end, I really can't believe that we're almost into the third month of the new year already. Time just flies, and it's crazy!
