A Lil Bout Me:
It was cold and rainy in AZ over the weekend.  Ugh.  Can I share with you reason # 1 as to how you know I am an Arizona native?  I don't know how to properly use an umbrella.  There, I said it!  Literally had a fight with it inside of Macys on Saturday.  Katie-0, Umbrella-1.

And do you know what my favorite color is?  Yellow.  Instant pick-me-up.  When I wear it, I match the sunshine.    

OK, that is all.  Loveyou.Bye.

A few years ago I swore I would never wear skinnies. Now I'm nervous about going back into flare jeans. They are definitely more flattering though!

Carolina said...

We definitely share the love for the 70s fashion! Unfortunately, I'm too short to wear flared pants (I wish I could) but it looks very good on you. It made me think that I should pay more attention to high-waisted jeans.
