*looks out at the icy rain leaving a glistening trail down my windowpane* Today, it is miserable out. It was supposed to snow but instead, we got this yucky rain. You know, the kind of weather that makes you long for sunny days with bright blue skies. On SL, we don’t have to have dreary days if we don’t want to so I took advantage of this to throw together a look that reminds me of warmer weather and the beach. In RL, I live about an hour away from the beach so if I really want to, I can just hop in my car and be on the boardwalk skating my heart out in no time.
There is nothing more fun than skating down the beaten and worn boardwalk with the cool ocean breeze on your face and the soothing sound of the waves crashing against the beach. You can let your mind wander to whatever your heart’s content is as you peek into the many shops the line the street side. Just be careful though because sometimes you hit one of those groves from the older planks and then you can stumble a bit. Oh no! Looks like I wasn’t watching where I was going! *Giggles* Maybe I should take my own advice!

I don’t know about you but I’m kind of addicted to Christmas movies especially the cheesy romantic ones they show on the Lifetime and Hallmark channels. They all have the same type of story: damaged by some tragedy and not looking for love small town girl meets equally damaged and unavailable small town boy and bam, sparks fly and there is love. I think being exposed to these types of movies over the years has made me crave small town living which is kind of hard beings I live in a huge city. I envision just one Christmas where I go somewhere where everyone knows everyone else and I can take a stroll down the main street window shopping as the snow falls lightly and Christmas carolers sing in the square. Since this isn’t going to happen anytime soon, I figured that I’d use it as inspiration for this post.
My look for my stroll is a mishmosh of goodies I’ve snagged from Winter Fair and the newest round of The Arcade. I was very lucky in attaining quite a few rares pretty easily at Arcade so I’m proud of that plus the Winter Fair goodies were too cute not to show off. If you haven’t been to either of these events, hurry because they will be over before you know it!
