Ruffles and bows

Well, my color streak had to end eventually!  Today's outfit is a lot more neutral - but I don't think it's any less fun.  It's the Friday before a holiday weekend, so why wouldn't I wear fun things like bows and ruffles?  I also love these capri tights.  Capri tights and leggings are suddenly my new favorite thing and I don't care if it gives my look an 80's vibe - they're comfortable and give me a little extra warmth!

Yes it is the "kick off to summer" here with Memorial Day weekend - but it still feels anything but summer like outside.  Save for that one 90+ degree day we had a week ago, it's been chilly and damp.  At least the sun is out today! I get the feeling it's going to be a long dead day at work.  No one hangs around long on the Friday before a long weekend.  My boss is heading out of town though so I get to hold down the fort today.

    It is a bank holiday weekend here, but I also have two weeks off work, yippee.

  14. I hope you're enjoying your long weekend! Work was pretty slow for us on Friday too, but they still wouldn't let anyone leave until 4:45. Oh well, 15 minutes early is better than nothing! :)
