Spring Fashion Week - Sunday

As I mentioned before, Spring Fashion Week really snuck up on me.  Speaking of which, the mister snuck up on me (see what I did there?) while I was taking these pictures.  Then, when I'd chased him off, he went up to the window overlooking the side yard and started making creeper faces.  Not appreciated, dude...but still, gotta love him for it.  Anyway, hence the weirdo faces -- that was me was getting him back so hard.

I hear friends and family all talking about still getting snow(!) this past week, and I have a confession -- it has been beautiful, absolutely positively perfect, for, um, two weeks?  This has been the longest streak of lovely we've had for as long as we've been in California.  And I. am. LOVING it.  Never mind that I've got med school finals next week, and super-scary standardized board exams two months later.  Never mind that I got sunburned legs today from studying outside in the sunshine under the orange tree.  Never mind that I'm in denial about, oh, just about everything (sunburn included!).  This weekend?  Everything was amazing.

Interesting (to me, at least) to note that, after a solid dozen years of hating fiercely on the color, I am introducing pink back into my wardrobe.  Why?  Eh, I don't know, it doesn't offend me any more, so why not?  I mean, I'm not specifically looking for it, but if it happens it happens.  Also, neener-neener I stick out my tongue because that is totally the mature adult response to a puck-y creeper mister.  Take that.

Ow-ow, check out that sunburn.  Yeesh.  Would you believe I've spent the past two weeks studying skin cancer (among other things)?  Obviously not practicing what I preach.

I am, however, taking my own advice and heading over to Spring Fashion Week.  You should, too!


  1. Oh these are katie pictures, in the fullest! I love the faces you make at Matt. I love the two of you together.

    Way to reintroduce pink! I know you've loathed it for ages. But the pink shorts are a perfect pop of color. And the shirt is perfect for you as well. :)

  2. That shirt is awesome!! I'm also starting to wear pink again after not having worn it since I was a kid.

  3. PINK SHORTS?! Yes, please. They are so cute! I love how fun and easy-breezy this outfit is!

  4. That looks like an awesome studying outfit. And thanks for bragging about your weather. We've had both snow and flooding over here--my husband and I have been enlisted to spend tonight on the bucket brigade in my grandparent's basement. I don't think any colors particularly offend me...some shades of green or orange, perhaps...
    By the way, I love your comments on my blog. You crack me up!

  5. i love pie too. but only...the dessert kind. not the math stuff.

    i love your shorts! i have always hated pink, but i wouldn't mind a bright pink pair of shorts. just not a frilly pink dress or anything like that.

  6. Awww! I love your cute faces! And all the motion you've got going on. Your energy transfers well. And pink looks lovely on you (well, the sunburn maybe isn't the best-for-you pink but whatever).
