I was driven (almost) insane by the gorgeous sunshine I woke up to earlier today. And my madness is  a good thing. It's a happy kind of crazy. Look at me sounding like Martha. I tell you, it's all the warmth those precious rays of light have been generously doling out. I am one happy (and silly) duck. 

I used to live in the Philippines, where we only experienced two "seasons" -- the wet and the dry. When I lived in Alaska, I never really even experienced any sunshine withdrawal. Perhaps that's because the amount of sunshine we got in the summer evened out the lack of it during the winter. However, the Midwest has been cruel to me this winter, and I've been (uncharacteristically) yearning for light and warmth. 

On sunny days like this I like to sit and read while sipping some tea, iced tea in the summer. What do you do on sunny, but cold-ish, days?

  2. those shoes are cool! and your hair looks really good in that last pic. I cannot wait for the spring and the sun, I'm so sick of the snow and the yoyo of a weather we have here.

  4. When the sun finally makes an appearance during the Jan/Feb months in my part of the south it means I can open up all the curtains and clean happily.

  6. I love your anchor necklace. I have one I bought in Peru, so I have a soft spot for anchor necklaces. Also, those shoes are so amazing. Seriously $2! That's an awesome find.

  8. I love the hair! It looks perfectly messy if you know what I mean!

    Those shoes are killer, they have just the perfect amount of unique in them! I like how you styled them with the socks!

    On cold days I love to read. I'm a book-a-holic (similar to your cardiholic:)) I also have recently taken to cleaning out my closet while being frozen out from the climate!

  9. Shiny shoes! Love em! I've been dying to get a pair myself.

    It's been sunny-coldish here as well! On days like this I like to skip the gym and go for a quick run around the local golf course. And then bake up a storm when I get home. Unfortunately I'm in exams right now and I had to skip the last part. I'm sure I'll make up for it when I start my spring break! Enjoy yours!

  13. Great shoes! I like how they have thick laces in them. I bet sweet little ribbon laces would look nice in them, too. Mannn, now I want some lace up silver flats! ;)

  19. Darn this Midwest for the lack of Rays! I've been feeling particularly Vitamin E deficient, but the sun was super shiny today, so it was a sight for very sore eyes. I love that shade of green!
