Is it Spring Yet?

This weekend felt like spring for the first time.  It was absolutely glorious and got me thinking towards beach and camping trips, sitting outside in the afternoons, and cute, leg-barring skirts.  Although, really, these poor white things need some color first.  Which reminds me of a story...

While tubing in San Marcos one summer day, I walked up to the tube renting booth, handed over my money, and boarded the bus to go to the start of the chutes.  When we got to our destination I got off and went to grab my tube from our driver.  Before he handed it over he looked me up and down and with an enviable Texas accent he said, "Woowee honey, I reckon you got yourself a case of the white leg."  Embarrassing.  And creepy.  And why I spent a few summers being self conscious about my paleness.  Thank you mister, you're a gem, really.

But anyway.  Im pale and proud now and flaunting my legs in this wonderful 70 degree weather... until it gets cold again - tomorrow.  Why must the Texas weather be so wishy-washy?

  1. This made me laugh because people always make fun of my white legs in the summer!

  2. Well that's not very nice of him! We can't control what colour skin we were born in, and although I'm guilty of rubbing on the fake tan, being natural is beautiful too!

    You're lucky you got nice weather! It's still freezing where I am. It's so cold that our snow is frozen and won't melt! Very cute outfit though!


  3. I love that button down and cute necklace!
