bare legs & frog legs

 This week it was FINALLY warm enough to go without tights! Which is slightly bittersweet because it made me realize just how pale my poor Washington legs are, but I was so overjoyed to see the sun that I couldn't waste time caring about such things. I literally skipped around town: Spring is here! 
You've seen this dress before, all wrapped up in tights and boots, and it is still one of my favorites. The star print on it makes me want to read a book about astronomy, or at least a Kurt Vonnegut book about space travel...it also makes me want to twirl about, but that's another story. 

A few other photos from my week: 
Last weekend some friends & I participated in the Bellingham Art Walk, where different venues all over downtown display various mediums of art. We grabbed drinks & frog legs first then saw a few of the exhibits including a toaster art gallery, art done by prison inmates, and art made from recycled books. Events like this are of the reasons I love living here. Also, frogs legs aren't bad. Just try 'em.

What do y'all have planned for the weekend? Here's hoping for more sunshine!

dress: H&M, coat: Sugarlips, belt & purse: thrifted, boots: Charlotte Russe

I love this outfit to bits, especially the dress! You styled it so well, even without tights. My parting with my tights collection for the spring season is a bit bittersweet, I have to say.
And these other photos managed to make me even more hungry. At the early 4 am hour. I don't know why I'm up, but food sounds fantastic in the meanwhile. xx

This week here in Ohio it was chilly enough that I had to wear tights again. :( I have the super pale legs going on, but I think I'm embracing them this year and not letting myself stress! :) Hope you have a great weekend!
