Raindrops, that is. Or they did, back in mild, over-worked December, when I managed to keep up with taking outfit photos but not with posting. This is my final leftover 2012 outfit.
I admire bloggers who are able to be really consistent. I'd like to be posting more than once a week, and enjoy to do so when I can amid revolving priorities, that pesky "time" business, and all of those unpredictable variables which apparently keep life interesting.
You know the ones.

Some things I am learning:
- don't take too many pictures
- if there are aspects I don't mind at all of blogs I love to visit (a standard set of poses, frequent repetition of clothing / footwear items, f'rinstance), I am free to let go of worries and any self-inflicted pressure about doing / not doing those things too
- easy there on the verbiage, cowgirl
- fun does not deserve to be strangled by perfectionism, that is mean
- and don't take too many pictures
Oh right! You probably want to see a bit more of the boots:
I like for my rainy days to have a sense of humour, a touch of the absurd, a whole lotta colours, and a soft red lining too. (Stay tuned for spring - when the skies open I also enjoy some skulls and roses, and a green, green sole. Can't wait!)
I initially passed on this skirt because it felt a bit "old-timey me," but when I went back to exchange another item, there it was, waiting still. In all its fluttery-black, semi-sheer-ruffly-layered, pretty-draping, well-made goodness. While it's true I haven't worn it a lot, my affectionate soft spots endure.
I so appreciate your taking the time to visit, and your comments! I'm also very grateful to Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for hosting Visible Monday, and to all the other participants. It's always a high point of my week - and it does wonders for my baseline post frequency. See you there.
