Many of you who read my blog know I have become increasingly busy in an attempt to juggle the daily demands of blogging with my work and personal life. Although blogger’s husband and I go away together, our vacations shouldn’t be the only time we reconnect and allow the outside world to fall away. I admit to losing myself in the minutiae of my blog work, thereby leaving little time for those in my inner orbit. Therefore, making time for a much needed date night is what a girl needs as a reminder of what’s important.
Swimsuit season is rapidly approaching and I can already hear the collective sobs of all the women who dread the thought of wearing a bikini or a bathing suit. For myself, I’m really not keen on wearing a bikini. It’s not because I think my physique is unsuitable for a bikini…not at all. It’s simply a matter of preference. I simply love the one-piece bathing suit. Whether poolside or on the beach, the one piece has re-emerged as the ultimate fashion statement. My love affair with the one piece bathing suit has been going strong for the last few years, and I find myself reaching for this singular piece over it’s two piece counterpart. Therefore, I’m temporarily saying bye-bye and sayonara to my little bikini friend for the following reasons…
In the past, I would’ve described myself as being a punctual person. However, in all honesty…I have never been on time. In Dayna’s world, this notion of promptness and being on schedule is a complete fallacy. Just ask blogger’s husband….he has probably logged at least 100 hours of waiting time. Habitual tardiness has turned into a perfunctory task and I find myself saying, “Sorry I’m late” on a consistent basis. I recently read an interesting article on individuals who are chronically tardy. This made me think about my own rational decision making process and time management skills; or lack thereof. With that being said, these are the real reasons why I am habitually late.
My husband pointed to a white Volkswagon Jetta and stated matter of factly it was our rental car. Gasp!! Parked in front of me was a hubcap-less jalopy, bucket of bolts. In addition to a hubcap-less car, the seats were stuck doing their best impersonation of the letter “L.” Upright driving and sitting is not something I will ever get used to! Can you imagine not being able to recline your seat??!! Neither had I until we drove off in our rented white Jetta.
Does it feel as though we have officially bypassed Spring and made a beeline to Summer? I have a confession to make….I have taken so many blog photos of myself dressed in fall clothes, I have major anxiety knowing I could be showcasing fall outfits into mid-summer! Noooo! (picture me sprawled out on the floor, tantruming with feet and arms flailing) How can I inspire you to wear a sweater in temperatures that will melt eyeliner halfway down your face? However, in all fairness, it cannot be that hot yet because my Korean mother is still ordering hot tea when we go out to eat.
With Spring around the corner, dressing for weather that can be unpredictable, is a daunting task. It’s hot, it’s cold, and then it’s hot again. Brisk mornings are a joy to dress for, but as the temperatures climb, one might regret wearing that heavier layer. Arizona has gone from the cool 60’s to the high 80’s within a week’s time frame. My only relief from full body pastiness is a tan from a recent vacation to Mexico. (thank goodness!) So the burning question….how to dress for that fickle time period between winter and spring? To prevent any awkward dressing dilemmas, here are a few of my tips for transitioning into spring.
