come out of the shade

015b

It definitely feels like spring today, bordering on summer really. The weather is continuing to be really finicky though, I heard it's supposed to be cooler again tomorrow. And yes, I'm 90 years old and talk about the weather. I guess because I don't have anything too thrilling to report from the weekend. I've been trying to take it easy, fighting off some sort of cold/allergy thing. I did get to go to an Explosions in the Sky concert last night with my boy in Charlotte! It was amaaaazing, definitely surpassed my expectations. Unless you have a ridiculous sound system, you really can't get that all encompassing feeling that you get at a concert. The drive was nice, a beautiful sunset and we even got back at a reasonable time, 12: 30 ishh.

Trucking along, the school year is quickly winding down. I don't know where the time went. Going to take a power nap, happy Monday everyone!

It's sort of strange trying to figure out what to wear during spring because the temperature fluctuates so much within a given day. Grabbed some layers this morning since it was a little chilly, but definitely was peeling things off by midday. It's always pretty cold in some of the academic buildings- I think they've already switched over to A/C?

Another way I wore the dress here and another way I wore the chambray shirt here!

AH, I wish that we could have some sunshine here in Oregon. There's supposed to finally be some tomorrow, but then after that it's April showers galore. Such a pretty, simple dress. The color is just perfect for summertime.
