Spring Awakening

15.3.11



Hiya! I'm alive and kicking. You see, I went to take a nap and somewhere along the line, I fell into a very deep slumber. My twitter feed was awash with blasts barely 0.5 milliseconds apart, blogs were erupting with more images than my eyes could scan and websites were overflowing with more articles than my mind could process. They were simultaneously going on  about fashion weeks the world over, this show and that trend. Its a tonne of fun to read and I do enjoy the updates but sometimes, a breather is quite necessary. But there was the catch. A breather turned into a moment, a break, and then a full blown hiatus.

It's been refreshing, but tis' a new season friends and dare I say I've had a spring awakening? (pun intended). The dust is settled and my colours of a paintbox countdown to spring continues. Here I am clearly competing with a car's headlights, impossible to miss even in the darkest of nights. Some may label it colour blocking.

PS: who here showed up late for an event because they forgot to turn their clock forward 1 hour? Not me :p Daylight savings...mucks you up.

Some may call it colour-blocking, but I would call it Abi-style! You're definitely back with a vengeance. Love the outfit, love the weather, and I so hear you on needing breaks for this crazy world. I disappeared myself a while ago.

People keep scaring me about daylight savings time, but ours is next week. I'm going to be the most forewarned person ever ; )

Oh, thanks guys.

@Emily: for a 1 hour time change, it does screw one up more than is expected. But you've been forewarned ;)

@Jerrica: they sure were!

@Maycie: hehe. It is. It just gets blown around in the wind a lot, but no indecent exposures so I can handle that.

@Ginta: got to stock up on the yellow girl
