Baroque n’ Roll
We had our first snowfall of the winter last week.
I’m not going to complain about it. I mean, obviously I WANT to complain about it, because you all know by know how much I hate the OMGSNOW and winter in general. Considering the type of weather the rest of the country/Northern Hemisphere has been getting this winter, though, I think we’ve gotten off pretty lightly: that 100 days of snow I was worried about turned out to be more like TWO days of not-very-much snow, after all, and trust me, no one could be happier about that than me.
Although the winter hasn’t been nearly as bad as it could have been, though, the near-constant rain has definitely had an impact on my outfits and my blogging lately. It just hasn’t been possible to get out and take photos for weeks now, and when these Prada sunglasses arrived from Pretavoir last week, I was seriously wondering if I would EVER get to wear them. I mean, my eyes are so light-sensitive that I wear sunglasses aaaaalll the time, even on days when other people would consider it to be quite dull out (Laugh all you want, but it’s better than walking around with my eyes watering and a permanently furrowed forehead from squinting against the light all the time. I wonder if I’m secretly a vampire?), but even I draw the line at sunglasses in the rain (Well, most of the time, anyway…), so these gorgeous glasses seemed destined to remain forever in their case, on my desk. And OK, it’s a REALLY sweet case, but I kinda wanted to wear them, you know?
Anyway, luckily for me, the snow had melted by Saturday afternoon, and Sunday was positively spring-like, so I got to wear my new glasses AND remember what sunshine feels like, which was all kinds of awesome. As for the sunglasses, I’ve loved this ‘Baroque’ style for ages now, so I was so excited to finally get my hands on a pair, especially when I opened the box and saw how beautifully packaged they were.
Now I just need some more sunshine. Preferably a LOT more sunshine…
