Hummingbirds

IMG_2168

Well, it has felt decidedly like spring up until today. It’s freezing cold (read: below 40 degrees) and raining/snowing depending on where you are in the valley. I watched snow accumulate in the foothills above campus…uh how about NO. It’s April! Get it together, weather. I wish those dang meteorologists could do something about it. 😉 (Hehe.)

Anyway, here’s an outfit I wore last week when the temperatures were more bearable (but definitely still chilly, hence the tights and coat). I wanted to pull out this dress again since it hadn’t made an appearance in many months. Did you notice that the birds on the sleeves are a different color than the birds on the rest of the dress? They seem more white. I thought it was a recent development, but looking back at the last time this dress was featured on here, they were different, then, too! What the heck?! I swear they weren’t always different. It’s so weird because even the birds/half-birds along the seams are white if on the sleeve side or yellow-ish white if on the main dress part. My colleagues and I were perplexed at how that could happen. And I mean, if scientists are baffled…

Fun fact: Taylor Swift owns this dress, too (mostly the reason why I bought it in the first place, haha…). I want to ask her if hers did the same thing because I literally cannot figure out how that happened.

  1. I don’t think you can see the different colors on the blog, or at least I didn’t notice it. What I did notice is those boots! How awesome are those! And I think you did such a great job putting this outfit together, very chic 🙂

    • It’s hard to tell in these photos, but I could definitely see the color difference in the close-up I included in the previous outfit! It’s probably also easier for me to see since I stared at it pretty much all day when I wore it, haha. I’m glad it’s not so noticeable! And thanks so much!! I love these boots, though I don’t wear them a lot since the heels are a bit high. 🙂
