Owls Are In

Skirt, Belt: J Crew final sale / Top: Urban Outfitters / Cardi: Gap clearance / Shoes & Socks: TJ Maxx (AE & ?) / Headband: Claire's /  Owl Earrings: Royal Touch (local shop)

We've had a bitterly cold wind the past few days. I tried bare legs, but just couldn't do it. Rest assured I still love my tights, but I am a bit tired of them at the moment. So I dug out my tall socks,  pulled out a long sleeved cardi, and let my floral blouse do the spring time talking for me. Apparently, the blossoms are no longer sufficient and I need clothes to remind me that it really is Spring, even almost Summer. I'm needy like that.

I'm loving this owl jewelry trend.  We have several owls and hear them hooting almost every night.  We've even caught them swooping out of the trees while driving down the road or taking the Hound for a walk. I pull her close when that happens. She's a smaller breed, after all, and you never really know how loftily an owl is scheming. That's what happens when you have a Hound for several years instead of children. You start to imagine that owls are about to swoop down and try to snatch up your 25 pound beagle. Then you give her a treat for being brilliant enough to avoid such catastrophe. And wonder why she's supposed to be 25 lbs but is almost 30...

She's just a bit gâtée* in case you haven't noticed. She even has her own 80s La-Z-Boy.  

All the other Hounds are way jaloux*.

*gâté = spoiled {fyi: the 'e' with an accent aigu (acute) is pronounced like the letter a}; jaloux = jealous

Wow, I know how you feel about the weather. I am going to have to start sp eaking French with a British accent it's so wet, rainy, cloudy here in Southern Oregon. Truth be told, I find it restive and evocative.
