Azul y Argyle

Yes. A little bit Spanish. A little bit English. No rules here.  And I'm not sure if you know, but no one really speaks Spanish in Canada. Other than Kobe's demands I get no practice. Dilemma.
So, it's the day before Halloween! I'm definitely getting into the spirit. Last night,
Paul and I carved the larger pumpkin and drew on the smaller ones while watching
Shaun of the Dead. I'm not one for horror movies - if I want to see some scary shit
I'll turn the news on. Although, maybe Toronto or Vancouver's news, 'cause there
isn't all that much crime here. Last week I think we had murder number nine in
2013.  Anyways... and tomorrow my sister, Allie, and I are going to some zombie
thing, which should be a hoot! And while by Halloween it has usually snowed, the
forecast for tomorrow is +14. Yes. 14. No mistype there. Now that is an Indian
Summer.  And to think: all those ladies in their hoochie costumes won't be cold!
I'm excited to finally get to wear this argyle skirt I redid during the summer in
autumn, for it's definitely better suited for the latter. Not to mention the wool
keeps me nice and toasty warm (wool skirts and summer? Not the best mix).
Click here to see how this skirt looked in its original condition. I think I might go
and dig out the few pairs of pants I own. Today I met up with my friend M and
whenever I see her I'm always like, dang girl, how do you make those jeans
look so darn good! Personally,  I haven't worn pants in the longest time.
I'm just naturally drawn to the romantic, whimsical, ladylike essence of skirts and
dresses. Maybe it's time for something new though. At least for a day.
