It’s June but I’m not sure Mother Nature got the memo

It’s June but the last two days have been in the low 60s and upper 50s, Wisconsin weather gotta love it!  The cool air, rain drizzle, and fog over the lake puts me in a fall frame of mind.  I start thinking about warm chunky cable knit sweaters, leggings, boots, hot drinks, a good book, and a relaxing place to sit.

Comfy rain clothes

 

Sweater, Leggings, Boots, Bag

This outfit looks so comfy but I hope I don’t need to bother with heavy clothing for a couple of months.  Summer where are you??

Outfit – Spring in the North

Spring in Wisconsin, it means you have to be ready for heat, cold, rain, floods, and snow storms.  And no, I’m not joking about the snow storm part, it’s happened before.  I think I carry more extra clothes around in Spring than any other season.  I can go to Lake Michigan in the morning wearing a jacket and pants, then drive out to my in-laws in Muskego and have to change into a skirt and a tank top.  It’s just all around crazy weather.  But it can be a little fun when you get to experience 4 season in one week 🙂

This outfit would be for a normal weekend day (I work all week and have no time to go anywhere. I live for the weekends)maybe start out at home on my balcony listening to the birds and the trains or at a coffee shop watching people be anti-social taping away on their computers.  Then downtown for some grocery shopping and a walk.  And who knows maybe I’ll end my evening at my mom’s, my dad’s or my in-law’s for a bonfire.

Two outfits, sometimes the second outfit is in the car and sometimes I go home in between to change.

Pictures from the Weekend

This weekend, my husband and I drove out to Madison to visit the Orchid Garden Centre.  They have 3 greenhouse of beautiful orchids.  We managed to come home with only 1 additional orchid and a couple of other plants.

Here are the plants setup at home with a little grow light (garbage bags to protect the table until we get a table-cloth):
