Suck it, winter!
Today, I decided that I'd had ENOUGH of the winter grays. I currently live in chilly Beijing, China, where the sky has been a depressing steel color for what feels like forever and the nippy wind refuses to acknowledge that spring is coming.
So today I decided to dress for the season I wish it was instead of the season it is outside: ballerina pink plus white! Warning bells went off when I went for the pink tights, saying "too childish! too childish!", but somehow I liked wearing a grown-up version of something I would've squealed over as a 6-year-old.
And for the record, it did wonders to lift my mood over the course of yet another dry, dreary day in the Beijing desert.
