Springtime in Austin is amazing. The bluebonnets and trees are blooming, trees are green – actual bright green, not the dull green almost brown color they turn in the Summer heat – the weather is gorgeous…which is all wonderful, except that I can’t breathe when I’m outside. My lungs tighten up and my head aches, pollen gets in my throat and dries it out, making me cough. Here in Texas we have to take the bad with the good; the fabulous weather comes with a high price tag. But I’m beginning to think it’s worth it.
That has nothing whatsoever to do with my outfit, except that today is THE PERFECT day to be outside, sit outside, eat outside, walk outside, drive with the windows down, and I hate that I can’t. That’s all. BUT, I do appreciate the ability to still be able to layer. Soon it’ll be back in the triple digits and I won’t want to.
On another note, I thrifted a caftan today. Does anyone have one? Do you wear it only at home? as a “house dress”?
That skirt is fabulous – love it!

Thanks! It was a great find. Sydney’s good at that 🙂
A caftan?!?! I can’t wait to see it!
Ah yes, us here in Texas…it’s gorgeous in El Paso except for the 75mph winds we’ve been having hahaha
The skirt looks great on you!! Can’t wait to see the caftan…it seems to be trendy to wear caftans and kimonos open over a tee or tank top w/jeans and shorts….that’s how we wore them back in the 70’s(didn’t wear those Daisy Dukes then and could never wear them now) I was more like Stevie Nicks
Sharon´s last blog post ..Poor hammer continued…..
great to bump into you today!
I adore caftans! I always dream of being someone rich and famous when I’m wearing one. (my husband would say, “When don’t you dream of being rich?”) Can’t wait to see it!
This is pretty close to what I’d consider a perfect outfit: Long skirt, tee, denim jacket, great shoes, expensive bag, and a statement jewelry piece. Yup. Perfect!
