Grey ponte pencil skirt - Chloe Dao (eBayed)
Springtime is in the air, folks. Or at least that's what I keep telling myself - by means of a grassy green top, short sleeves, a trench coat, and going without tights. My (unshaven) knees got a bit chilly today, I must admit... But if it's sunny out these days, I basically have to fight the urge to wear sandals!

I pretty much love this skirt though. I had been looking for a casual grey pencil skirt (you know me and a pencil skirt) and I was gravitating towards a ponte knit. Wouldn't it figure that I saw a full stock of them a few months ago at a Lane Bryant Outlet, but I wasn't in the market for one at the time. And now? Nothing. Anywhere. So I resorted to eBay, and I found this interesting number with a full exposed zip in the back! I hesitated at first - I prefer basics, really - but then I decided to dive right in. I'm glad I did - it's so darn unexpected and unique! The zipper can get just a bit cold on the behind, is all...

In other news, we're apartment hunting. Since we're a one-car household, we want to move closer to campus (where I work) so I can more easily bike/walk/bus. We also want to downsize a bit and decrease living expenses. I've gotten a few leads, but I'm really not looking forward to the whole process. I actually used to enjoy it all (I once kept an annotated and hyperlinked spreadsheet of 50+ possible locations and would plot floor plans on graph paper...) but now it's just stressful, time consuming, and full of dead ends. Maybe I'm too picky, I dunno. Alls I know is I want the perfect place, with ample storage, clean walls and carpets, good light, a spacious floorplan, a reputable landlord, and a decent neighborhood to fall right into my lap. Is that too much to ask (in a campus town)?!? Yeah, I thought so too... Blurg. Wish me luck!
