Spring in Houston

Can’t help but smile!

I am absolutely ecstatic about the official commencement of spring, and not at all intimidated by this horrendously humid and hot Houston summer everyone keeps warning me about. Yes, ideally it would always be 75 degrees with a slight breeze coming from the northwest, but you can’t have it all. I’d much rather sweat than freeze (Years of playing ‘would you rather’ with my siblings made me really good at determining the least detestable or more tolerable of two evils).

Today, thanks to Mr. Sun’s decision to show his beautiful face, I was able to leave my parka at home. I sported silky basics offset by semi-grungy shorts and boots, and topped the look off with some international accessories. Oh yeah, thanks to some sneaky DIY in the shower techniques, my hair is once again teetering on the brink between platinum, lavender and gray. You can’t really put it in a box — just like me!

Estoy toda emocionada porque después de una larga espera, la primavera arrancó (bueno, eso dice mi calendario). Lo que más me gusta de la primavera es que es el antecedente del verano, y a pesar de todas las advertencias que he escuchado acerca de los veranos extremadamente calurosos e insoportablemente húmedos de Houston, ¡A MI NO ME ASUSTAN! Claro, lo ideal sería estar siempre a una temperatura de 75 grados con vientos frescos proviniendo del noroeste, pero no podemos tenerlo todo. Yo prefiero mil veces sudar que congelarme.

Hoy, gracias al Sr. Sol que decidió mostrar su cara, pude dejar mi chamarra de eskimal en casa. Me vestí con piezas básicas de seda haciendo contraste con shorts y botas mas locochones y accesorios internacionales. Ah, y gracias a mis técnicas secretas en la regadera, mi cabello una vez mas navega el territorio entre platino, gris y lila. No se puede encasillar en una sola categoría — ¡mas o menos como yo!
