It had to be today. Today, when I had decided: “I’ll take some photos and sign up to Chictopia.” I had it all planned in my head. How I would go outside into the beautiful sunlight, because summer actually came a little early this year, take some awesome full-body shots and upload them here.
Then Mother Nature said: “No.”
I was not about to be won by nature, no way. Shorts were out of the question, but somehow I convinced myself that a light knee-length dress was way warmer than shorts. Yeah right.I fell in love with the pink dress the second I saw it in the store, and I knew I had to have it. I could imagine all the warm summer days I would spend having picnics and seeing my friends in that dress. The shoes came to my possession very similarly, although I believe it was my friend who literally commanded me to buy them: I think she got tired of me unable to keep my eyes off them.
Anyhoo, the pictures look really bad because they were taken on our tiny, dusty balcony that no one ever uses except for dumping the Christmas tree in January, and despite my best efforts I still haven’t managed to snap a good picture of myself.
Needless to say I have not given up on summer yet. Even though the wind almost blew my dress away. Even though I was freezing outside with no pantihose. Even though everyone around me was wearing windbreakers.
Even though I pulled down the sleeves of the denim jacket – but that’s as far as I’m willing to go.
