Three Thanks

1. Sundresses - I love it when it gets hot enough to break out the sundresses. I wore the first one of the season yesterday and it only left me craving the purchase of more. Here's my issue...tell me if you sympathize. There's comfort in numbers, you know? See, I'm a short girl. Many times, the fashionable shorts are too short for my liking and capris don't always look right (more like too short pants, aka highwaters). So, in the spring and summer, skirts and dresses are my thing. 'Tis the season!

2. Cloudless skies - If you were in Nashville this weekend, you understand how beautiful it was! Hot...but amazing nonetheless. Friday night was beautiful, Saturday and night were the same...and Sunday? Well, it just really took the cake. I played tennis that afternoon and got burned to a crisp...totally unexpected in March. It's what I get for being so dadgum pale complected!

3. Spring trees in bloom - You can't have missed them...the Eastern Redbud trees...they're on fire this time of year! They are just this emblazoned splash of purple on an otherwise natural-colored background. I just love them! Did you know that the Eastern Redbud is sometimes called the Judas tree, because it dates back to biblical times?? Well, whether you did or didn't know that little factoid, here's a montage so those of you not in the area can appreciate...

Those trees are gorgeous. We don't have them here but crabapple trees put on a pretty nice display.

Hear hear for sundresses! Going to a beach wedding in May where they are the attire so I can't wait to shop for them!

I'm the opposite of short but I have the same issues you do with shorts and capris. I think they are just made for average sized people, not those of us at the extremes.

They are made for average people! Perhaps, I should shop in the children's section and just wear their pants as capris. :)

Beautiful pictures, and of course you look beautiful in sundresses so I am a fan of spring & summer! :)

Haha - Ahh, but you haven't seen me in quite sometime...I might not look so good in sundresses anymore!! :)

xanthuos said...

As long as you admit that that is both of our faults (that we haven't seen each other in some time) ;)
I have, however, seen recent enough pictures of you to hazard a guess! =D

I love the concept of sundresses but don't like the execution on myself.

However, I agree WHOLEHEARTEDLY about capris. Please, introduce me to the person over the age of 12 who looks good in those. I will be so glad when that trend heads back to the closet.
