Wishful Thinking

Noiselessly as the spring-time her crown of verdure weaves,
And all the tress on all the hills open their thousand leaves
      Cecil Frances Alexander 

Outfit: Wool Sweater (Thrifted), Plaid Skirt (DIY), Black T-Shirt (Thrifted), 
Glasses (Firmoo), Bag (Thrifted)

    I believe this is the first spring season outfit I'm posting...which makes me sad because you sure can't tell from my pictures that it's no longer winter (it's even snowing). The weather has been so disheartening the past couple of years I've been seriously contemplating moving back to B.C. I'm from Kamloops, and let's just say the winters there are less severe... However, I wouldn't want to move back there. After some research the bf and I have narrowed it down to either Victoria (I've never been) or Vancouver (this is where my mother grew up and my older brother lives now). All everyone talks about is how expensive it is to live out west, but I'm willing to make sacrifices for better weather! So begins the plan to trek out west, as many others throughout history have done before me! (haha, sorry the nerd in me just had to say it)
    And now on to the outfit of the day. I have finally worn the skirt I made a while back. About time too 'cause I doubt I'll be wanting to wear it much once it gets warmer (it has to right?). For the how-to on this skirt click here. And wool, my dear, dear friend. I am thankful you kept me warm these past several months but you have got to go! Like I said. I am a summer child through and through.

Ta-ta for now!
