Chasing sunshine

I always thought the term hump day was silly I guess I still do, but wtf happy hump day!  This week at work has picked up again and for that I am thankful, as a commission only salesperson I only get paid if I sell, no safety net salary here.  I think a lot of you independent sellers can relate to that one too. I wanted to show off my latest pair of mega beautiful leggings by Cristi at Kiss Me Kitty.  I think these are my favorite, either these are or my heart pair.  Are you ready?
The sun was shining a few days ago but now it's gone, that's Springtime in Oregon for ya!
 I think I could pair these with a ton of things in my wardrobe.
 Someone compared her stuff to Black Milk yesterday and I also own a few pair of Black Milk leggings and I think the biggest difference for me is comfort.  BM seems to be designed for really thin girls, I have a hard time wearing them all day because the waist just digs in even if they fit right everywhere else.
 I am a woman and I have curves and Cristi's leggings have a higher waist that fits just right.  I can wear them all dam day!
 How perfect are my sneakers with them!!!!
 I'm a bit out of sorts this week as my Mom heads in for surgery tomorrow.  Nothing too major but it's difficult being so far away when something like this takes place.  I know she'll be ok because she is one tough lady.  I love my Mom!

I hope your mom's surgery goes well.

I have never been able to wear pantyhose because of the fit. They never fit right in the crotch or hips.

Those tights are awesome! The hat looks great too.

Definitely my favourite pair, they remind me of so many different things... Dali paintings, fractal pictures from the mid nineties, Hawaii....
I really do with livening up my legging collection which consists of black and grey!
Glad to hear work is steady for you, must be quite unsettling when you're unsure of your income.
Thinking of your mom, and you, she must be one strong lady to have raised you to be so energetic, unique and fun.

Nerd Burger said...

OMG!I need a pair of those leggings. You look so cute in them and I love them paired with those rad sneakers of yours.
I have to agree with you about Black Milk. I have never purchased from them for two reasons.
1: They are way too expensive for leggings
2: Every picture on their website is a mega thin brown or blond haired model. The clothing will look ridiculous on me. I'm a short chubby nerd. Half the time you won;t be able to even see the design properly.

Hope it all goes OK with your mom's surgery - it must be a huge worry, so sending you a big hug across the ocean.... x

Orange polka dots, floral leggings, stripey sneakers and that fabulous hat - that's a quintessential Krista outfit! Full of colour and vitality and fun and friendship.
I know what you mean about the sun - glorious here yesterday, grey, gloomy and damp today.

It's hard when family is far away. She must be amazing if you're her daughter!! The leggings are fab, and yes, they do go perfectly with your sneakers. XXOO

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

Your beautiful leggings is a great inspiration for a tattoo, but it sure helps if the leggings is combined with pink hair!

The Canon Girl said...

Good luck to your mom! Even if the surgery is minor it's always scary to have someone you love go under the knife. This outfit of yours is spectacular, all the colors are just amazing. That orange dress is the most beautiful thing with your bright pink hair!

Frocktasia said...

The leggings are perfectly stunning and even better that they are a comfier fit than your BM ones, I can't stand things that dig in and make me feel as if I may bust a seam at any moment.
I'm glad to hear that work is picking up, it can be very scary not having a guaranteed income every month.
You look sfabulous in the spring sunshine in your gloriously colourful ensemble :)
I hope your mum's surgery goes well and that she has a speedy recovery afterwards, mum's ROCK!
Lot's of love,

Vix said...

Your Mum'll probably kill you for mentioning her op! Bless her! Hope she's sitting up and giving those nurses hell by now.
Those leggings are stunning especially with the polka dots, crazy hat and loud trainers. You are a ray of sunshine on a shitty March day! Send some of our sunshine back!
The parcel has landed and I LOVE IT ALL!
Love you! xxxxxxxxxxxxx

You look so great I just want to come over and squeeze you! I love the orange dress, it's gorgeous! The leggings are fantastic, they look awesome. You are queen of sneakers! Hope you're still loving the cd. I hope all goes well with your mum, it's mother's day in the UK tomorrow, you could celebrate both this year to cheer her up

Marjorie said...

Love your style. Love those leggings. I just ordered my first pair ever from Cristi. I got the same fabric as Vix's and can't wait to get them. I won't do them justice like Vix but they will make me happy and that is all that matters. Thanks for telling me about Cristi's lovely work.

Wendy said...

Super cute!!!

Bella Q said...

Love to your mama!

Those leggings are pretty amazing- as is that dress on you. Who would have thunk you could rock orange a hard as you do candy pink?

Forest City Fashionista said...

Hope your Mom's surgery went well (it sounds like it did..). It's always worrisome when our parents go under the knife, even if it's not a major surgery.

I love the tights - the prints are glorious! Does she make any that are cotton blend?

A tooth (plural teeth) is a cheap, calcified, whitish order found in the jaws (or mouths) of various vertebrates and used to sever down food. Some animals, explicitly carnivores, also use teeth for the purpose hunting or for defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered by gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but rather of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.

The ordinary make-up of teeth is similar across the vertebrates, although there is sizeable converting in their form and position. The teeth of mammals be struck by profound roots, and this decoration is also found in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, manner, the teeth are attached to the outer surface of the bone, while in lizards they are fond of to the inner surface of the jaw during one side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are seconded by perplexing ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that construct the jaw.,i,uroda/laserowe,leczenie,zebow,s,943/,i,uroda/ekstrakcja,zeba,s,1017/,i,uroda/zatoki,szczekowe,leczenie,s,684/,i,uroda/resekcja,korzenia,s,2047/,i,uroda/medycyna,estetyczna,katowice,s,2160/,i,uroda/klinika,stomatologiczna,katowice,s,3511/,i,uroda/danutaborczyk,pl,s,3489/,i,uroda/aparat,na,zeby,katowice,s,2273/,i,uroda/ortodonta,katowice,s,3644/,i,uroda/klinika,stomatologiczna,katowice,s,1945/,i,uroda/odwiedz,www,s,3535/,leczenie,zebow,s,1855/,leczenie,zebow,s,2239/,i,uroda/danutaborczyk,pl,s,4508/,i,uroda/wybielanie,zebow,katowice,s,1946/
