Mushroom Kingdom

 Thrfting is a sport. I literally work up a sweat hauling about the massive pile of clothes, protecting my treasure pile from thieving hipsters (and old ladies), and trying on 25 items to come away with perhaps 3.  A huge chunk of the reason to get all sweaty and trying on clothes without a dressing room in public is the rush you get when you FIND something. Or when you find SOMETHING. Either way, EXCITEMENT. In the case of this sweater, I found SOMETHING. the second I laid eyes on this treasure, NOTHING else in my cart mattered. I would have elbowed a hipster right between the eyes to protect it. Not once did this glorious garment leave my shaking grasp before I checked out. I can't recall anything else that came home with me that day. There is a distinct possibility that upon finding my precious, I abandoned the stack that previously I had protected so adamantly, and gone straight to the register.  So I was extremely grateful for a few chilly days to be able to don the fun fungus jumper. In all likelihood, and sadness, this amazing piece will have to hang out in my closet for 6 or so months before I'm really going to be able to wear it again.

 Warmer days are moving in, and my feet are itching (not literally. eww.)  to get into some sandals, but secretly, I will miss my sweaters and tights until fall. I think I may need to relocate to a cooler climate.
