Look! My legs are purple and I'm not even wearing tights

Monday, February 28

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Skirt: Ruche, Top: c/o ShopMamie, Blazer: c/o Frock Candy, Watch: Gift
More like my legs are purple BECAUSE I'm not wearing tights. I've got spring fever guys. And the weather doesn't seem to care. That's OK I guess. Cause most of my weekend was spent cuddled up inside anyway. Forgive me for not posting this weekend. Can we still be friends? I was spending all my time soaking up husband before he had to leave this morning. *tear*
I'll be bragging about him later.
But until then, I'm off to be alone for the whole week.
Anyone up for a sleepover? My bed can fit at least 5. 
10 if we suck it in the whole night.
I'm game.

When my husband is gone, I sleep with the lights on and I usually don't fall asleep til like 1 am. I'm just a little scared sleeping alone.

Ooh! be careful posting about being alone! I have seen way too many datelines to know how dangerous that is when you have such public blogs & facebooks. Sorry to be a damper. You just can't be too safe, IMO.

Jenni Austria Germany said...

sometimes i am just distracted by how beautiful your ring is to fully appreciate the clothes.

{molly beth} said...

ADORABLE .
i plan on copying this outfit :]
thanks for the inspiration !

{isn't everyone's legs purple in the winter?}

Celia said...

Oh I've been there with the purple legs. Like when it's hot enough outside for nothing but skirts and shorts, but inside it's wayyy over air conditioned. So then, your gams get all purpley.

And I feel ya on the husband leaving. When Almost Husband takes off, I make lots of plans with the ladies and watch unhealthy amounts of E! Network. But it's nice to take some breaks - keeps everything fresh!
