Rainbow Road

Ah, Sunday. Every time you come around, I wish I didn't have to work and instead could sleep in, picnic and fly kites. The museum world is harsh, man. 
The List:
-striped rainbow tee, Bulldog (UO)
-off white cardigan, Spring + Mercer
-jean skirt, Gap
-gladiator flats, Target
-bronze bead hoops, Lohemann's
-orange cotton scarf, Israel
Does anyone else use Picasa to store their photos? For some reason, the pictures have been coming out washed out when uploaded to web albums... I even had to use flickr to get the color of the lipstick from yesterday to show clearly. Kind of frustrating since I have my blogging groove down to a science. Anyway, that was a long-winded way of saying the colors you see are slightly desaturated. My Sunday rainbow was way more rockin' than it appears to you now.
The light cardigan is a godsend come spring (aka expect to see it often.) I use it to layer over tanks, which I don't wear alone. The shirt underneath is just what I need for a Sunday at work, where I lead walking tours in the blistering heat: light, airy and sleeved. You'd be amazed at how infrequently those descriptions appear together in one garment.

And some random items of interest, perhaps:
-for those who asked: the painting in our bedroom is actually a Marimekko wall hanging. We have another in our "foyer" (front part of long living room.) The one in the bedroom is hub's favorite piece in our apartment.
-Tomorrow is my birthday! By tomorrow, I mean in 2 hours from now. Hello, 24.
-Stay tuned for my first-ever giveaway in the next few weeks. I'm really excited to be able to offer something to show my appreciation for you guys!

Love the rainbow tee and your nails! I've been lusting after a colorful/striped Old Navy tank...this makes me want it more!

I hate it when my photos get washed out! Best way to avoid it - save them as something other than a jpg. The files will be bigger, but sometimes it's just worth it!

and I love the yellow polish!

I love all the bright colors in this outfit - they work very well together.

Happy Birthday! Love your watch! It reminds me of the watch Sandra Bullock wears in "The Blind Side."
