Spring Break Day 5: Good Bye Break

I spent the day frolicking about in Georgia's beautiful weather and it was fantastic! Nothing super spectacular, just thankful the spring-like warm weather. I got my new laptop and the keys feel ooh so nice. I was so excited to go see the long awaited Watchmen. I saw the previews for it last year and i couldn't wait for the movie's release and i have to say, i was not too impressed. However, it probably should be taken into consideration that i've never read any of the Watchmen Comics. And after i saw the movie and read the reviews, it seemed that people who read and follow the Watchmen Comics seemed to rate the movie higher than those who do not. That being said, for what its worth, i like the soundtrack and the graphics was fantastic. If you've seen the movie or plan on seeing it, feel free to share your thoughts.

Being the pack rat that i am, i hold on to anything with a hint of sentimental value. Like this skirt. When my mom bought it for me on one of her shopping excursions that did not include me, i was livid (teen angst,hehehe). I absolutely hated this skirt and thought it was hideous and vowed never to wear it, but i couldn't let it go either because my mom got it for me. Fast forward a few years,i've grown quite a bit but funnily, a part of me still finds the skirt just a little bit ugly. But i like it.I'm finding that it gets easier for me to wear whatever i want, as long as i wear the clothes, and not the other way around.

I really like the skirt actually. The print and colours do bring to mind vtg. upholstery fabric but, weirdly enough, I think that's what I may like about it. The length really makes it cute and modern. All in all, great outfit!
