Here's my attempt at forcing Spring. I'm wearing a tee and shorts...and tights, a wool sweater, and boots. Huh? It's springtime in Chi City. I am so ready to put away all things wintry. I decided on bright fun colors including magenta lips!
My grey cardigan and grey tight are the reality of the weather situation here. It's been gray, cold and rainy.
I love my purple crossbody hobo. I can stuff so much in it. It's nice and roomy but it's fairly compact.
Since the cowboy boots cover a portion of my legs they make me appear shorter so added more "length" by wearing shorts. The more leg I show, the leaner I appear. It's my preferred method of dieting. Standing up straight is another one of my favorite "diets". I'm a sloucher so when I do stand up straight it's instant thin!
I found the turquoise and emerald green pairing to be a little odd so I later switched to the vintage black rain boots creating a monochromatic look and boom another thin trick! I was down to waif size minutes after posing.
I'm kidding. I only care about being tall and thin a little bit. I'm healthy and that's enough for me.

In other news, I had a ball at the clothing swap party. I'm planning to write something up but just in case I get around to it later rather than sooner, here's Christie of Living Simplistically's recap.
I'm headed to Las Vegas on Saturday. If this is your hood, where should I go thrifting? I'm looking for very cheap with awesome finds!
