It was one of those days where it was so cold that I couldn't feel my face. T_T It was horrible. Heh. Every time I spoke to my partner, plumes of white air rushed out of my mouth and I couldn't feel my lips touch as I formed my words. It was like I was a ghost or something. Ugh. Damn you, Winter! >_<
Rather than get all bent out of shape, I chose to just smile through it. Hehe. Also, stupid things kept happening. The cold winds kept blowing my scarf in weird directions and, when I opened my coat, the flaps were blown every which way. I could hardly keep myself under control. All I could do was laugh.
Despite the crappy weather, I was still in a pretty good mood and I wanted to display those feelings in my outfit. *^_^* I was determined to wear this beautiful white coat, because it's brand new and, though I've had it for maybe two years, I hadn't worn it. White scares me something fierce. Haha. I'm just so freaked out by it. I love the purity of the color and it's a versatile canvas for light and dark patterns.
However, I'm always afraid that I'll spill something on the coat or set it down on something dirty. I'm also not too keen about how the color actually looks on me. For this reason, I hardly ever wear my (only) white pair of spring/summer sandals. I feel like an oddball in them. Maybe I should see a hypnotist or something. >_< I may leave the session quacking like a duck every time some says, 'chicken cordon bleu,' but at least I'll be able to wear white pants, coats and shoes with the utmost confidence. Haha.
Aaaaanyway. Hehe. :P I like hidden surprises, so I wore this super bright and cheery plaid dress underneath the coat (along with the usual thermal layers). The knitted deer panel on the bodice is really cute. The dress is one of those things that I would enjoy looking at, even if I couldn't actually wear it. Hehe. It gave me another reason to smile on a day filled with errands and grocery shopping. <3
