Spring was in the air…wait, it’s mid-October! I would enjoy it while it lasted…if you’ve lived here long enough you know things change fast, like style! It was Saturday and I didn’t know what to wear. Looking out my window it was beautiful. I checked my mac’s dashboard – beautiful. Really? Could I trust this? Would I make it to evening with a little top and bare legs if I didn’t come home to change? I left.
I met Viva on the street…she was looking like she had some major spring fever!
