Winter's Lament and Beauty's Withhold



_____Look at that fancy-pantsy title-- is that some poetry or what? Just call me Robert FROST (geddit, geddit, there be snow in my pictures? hurhurhrur). Today is a good day, citizens, mainly because we got a two hour delay to school and I woke up on the happy and buttered side of my bread. We have had a few delays this year. I'm liking this extra snow, not only because it guarantees the most bright of photos, but also because it's concentrated awesomeness in its coldest and most sinisterly delightful form.
_____If you look in the back of some of my pictures, you can see Charles the swan making the water ripple about. He kept trying to take the spotlight from me. That crazy swan. In other news, I got my hair cut last weekend and now it feels a ton shorter. When I went in to get it cut, I told the hairstylist lady I was trying to grow it out, and she said we'd have to cut off all the dead ends.. apparently, all of my hair was dead. Oh well, at least I can brush my hair now without my brush getting stuck halfway down my hair. That's a pretty nice feeling, I guessssss.
_____I hope you all are staying warm in this cozycold weather!

Nice outfit! I agree, the snow does bring out the vibrancy of colors. My hairdresser also chopped off a lot of my "dead hair" too ): that's what I get for waiting so long between trims.

Rebecca said...

That outfit looks great against the snowy background.

Vanessa said...

Beautiful photographs, as always. This red pea coat is lovely, especially against all that white white snow!

What a darling outfit! Adore that pin and skirt:)

Hair stylists can never be trusted! they will always cut off way more than you'd ever want, unless you want them to cut a lot and then they keep asking "are your sure?" and barely cut two inches.

Love your red peacoat, because red peacoats are the best. only boring people wear black peacoats.
