So Much Sun, Why So Blah?

Awg, I am in some serious funk here. It's only February and I am cross-eyed and weird.

Don't worry, it's quite normal for us Alaskans. In fact, it shouldn't be anything special, but I can't help but complain! It's most odd, the sun is out and shining, and yet I am down in the dumps, especially with my closet.

We've all done it: staring into our majorly packed closet and going I have NOTHING to wear! I do it way more than necessary, but I am simply not inspired by this weather for some reason and I recluse into yoga pants and hoodies. I think part of the issue is the fact that although the sun may be shining, it is still bloody twenty degrees out. So any promise of spring soon evaporates once I step out the door. GRR. So my shorts.. gotta go back into my summer wardrobe. 

Now that I am fully aware of this most distressing issue, I'm trying various methods to get on out of the funk. First is: it's February, as in Valentine's Day month and so I have decided to wear something pink, orange, red, or purple (any hues of pink) every day of this month. Now whether it's a top or an undergarment (bring out the Victoria's Secret!), I will try my hardest. Hopefully, this will give me incentive when dressing myself every morning and cut it down to a five minute deal instead of a frustrating three hours. 

Secondly, I'm trying to observe more about me and appreciate little things that make me happy. Lunch at little spots, a cute text message, you name it! Gotta keep positive here in the middle of winter.. up secluded in the north.. no one to hear me for miles.. Yep. 

PLUS, I leave for Arizona quite soon and that is for sure something to be excited about!

Any ideas for out-of-funk solutions?

Speaking of lunch spots, my mum and I enjoyed a nice one today at Veronica's, located in Old Town Kenai.

A honey vanilla latte.. May be my new favorite drink.

Rosemary Polenta quiche with creamy tomato basil soup and pasta salad. Mmm.

I love the feel of hot sun on my skin! I just wish the air would warm up now..

What I wore: old sparkly dance headband, white COACH sunnies (Christmas gift), silver vintage cardigan (used), pink and silver PINS&NEEDLES top (used), CAbi capris (used), and light grey NORDSTROM flats (sale).

  1. Latin dance classes ;) Game nights with friends/ coworkers. Smores! To die for Van Breves with a raw sugar on top. Ice skating. Movies. Lots of things to keep spirits high. And if you ever need someone to get into trouble with just say the word.
