Remember when it was winter forever and I wouldn’t stop complaining? Well now that it’s spring, let me go ahead and complain about that too. See the thing with spring is: it doesn’t really know what season it wants to be. The forecast could say there’s a high of 65, but that doesn’t happen until 5:00pm. In the morning when I head out, it could be 45.
My solution is to go bare on the bottom and bundle up on top. That means my legs are a little too cold in the morning, and my arms are a little too hot in the afternoon. By my logic, my body’s internal thermometer averages out, so at the end of the day, I can combine the hot and the cold in my head and then reflect fondly on my general comfort level. How does this make sense? It really doesn’t. But it’s the best idea I have.

Check it out…I’m officially halfway done with the Looking Lucky style challenge. This is my #5 out of the 10 trends. In case you’re taking the challenge for a spin and you weren’t sure what “local love” meant, here’s an example. Just show a little pride for your hometown or home state (or your current town/state, if different). Wear something from a local brand or boutique, or even a local jewelry artist or something. If you’re not feeling quite so hipster, just rock a t-shirt with a sports team or college.
For bonus points (which aren’t actually worth anything), wear your “local love” outfit to eat at a local restaurant. I wore this last Sunday to go out for pizza and beer with a bunch of my fellow law review nerds. I’ve been having fun wearing heels on weekends recently…when you think about it, a day when you don’t have much to do is pretty much the perfect day to wear uncomfortable shoes.
Thanks to everyone who’s been joining in on the challenge this month and sharing your looks on Instagram! Remember there are multiple giveaways in conjunction with this challenge, so you’re definitely gonna want to jump on this bandwagon!
