Nostalgic for Spring (who isn't?)

Today it was an alarming 50 degrees. 50?! Now you have to understand: here in the Midwest where it's nowhere near a legitimate seaside, that's guaranteed springtime temperature (imagine me saying all of that in a twangy accent). Despite my better judgment, it almost fooled me into thinking that spring was just around the corner. Mother Nature, damn you.

Which led me to sift through my old photos from this past spring, a time where I miss wearing just one layer of tights and not bulking up on shirts and coats so much. A blast from the past! Back... back! when I had shoulder-length hair. Back to the future! *hops in DeLorean*

I hope all of you got that reference.

Admire these half-assed Photoshop skills. The composition looks all wrong; it's like I photobombed my own picture.

Speaking of photo bombs.

I was going for soft 1920s hair with a sharp silhouette and bright, contrasting colors. I only need to learn how to sew, then HELLO PROJECT RUNWAY.
