Day #2 of the 6-month Challenge.

I woke up to rain and gloom after a long stretch of warm, humid weather. I welcomed it with open arms... and my pink Hello Kitty umbrella. I love this umbrella. I never thought I would fork over $20 for it, but the ruffles called out to me. And yes, it's a kids' umbrella. There were adult-sized ones, but I thought they looked kinda plain. My husband and I left early in the morning to watch X-Men: First Class, which I absolutely loved, but not as much as I love this outfit.

For one, I am wearing one of my geek tees-- a Zatanna shirt portraying the magician-superhero in one of her more obscure costumes. Another reason I love this outfit is for this skirt, with its extra flounce and dotty print. You can't see it, but there are pink and grey dots all over the fabric. Lastly, I felt a little bit like the gorgeous Addie, whimsical and all, but totally still geeky and me.

After we left the theater, the sun peeked out for just a moment, and I got to take more silly pictures.
