Warm Rays and Boot Blues

Let's get one thing out of the way: Happy March everyone!

Let's get one thing out of the way: Happy March everyone!

Okay, now that the exclamation has been made, I need to reveal another revelation: I saw the sun yesterday.

Yes THE SUN. That gorgeous big ball of warmth in the sky, for the first time in around 65 days and it was like the best thing of my too long winter existence. Living in the middle of the arctic tundra, (aka Michigan but when 1 degree feels warm, it counts), around day 30 of your cloudy and cold life, you start to question if there ever really was a point in your life where you need glasses to shade your face or a time when you were able to walk outside with clothing the size of one of your neck scarves.

It made me realize how much the sun affects my mood, and how happiness is so much easier to come by when you're not banned into a life of subzero temperatures and layers of goodwill sweaters.

Another thing the sun makes you do is make you think it's warm outside when in reality your first steps outside make you run for the warmth of your freezing vehicle and curse the sun god who put the idea into your head that you could break out the cheetah print flats that have been laying dormant and so lonely looking on the floor of your closet.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who is sick of wearing the same pair of boots day after day, therefore making your life the same day after day until you realize this sad fact mid-January and long for the days where you can make so many different outfits with cuter shoes.

WHY DID I EVER BUY SO MANY FLATS AND SANDALS, you scream in your head, thinking of how cute and Jessica Day like they make you feel and look. Not to mention all the people missing out on the infinite possibility of spring outfits you can give their eyes. Before you can head-gasp and scream back BECAUSE THEY WERE ON SALE AND I NEED THEM ALL, remember this..

...It's March, and there are approximately 63 days until your cute shoes might be able to break free again, unless we go crazy from the sun teasing us before then.

Hang in there.
