For me May is always very stressful. It starts with the annual graduate student committee meetings, grading, attending commencement and all the related afternoon receptions and parties, cleaning the yard and grill, and ends with planting potatoes, broccoli, Swiss chard, white and red cabbage, sowing peas, carrots, turnip, spinach, lettuce, etc. towards the end of the month.
Well, this year is the first year since I came to Alaska that commencement failed to fall on Mother’s Day. I like it to be on Mother’s Day. Can you imagine a better Mother’s Day gift than seeing her child graduating?
It is not green yet. But one can see that green-up will be any time soon. Then the Tanana Valley will be all green from one day to the other. It is unbelievable when you haven’t seen it yourself. It is like switching a button.
Nevertheless, the first mosquitoes are already out since more than a week. This year they are really big. More than half an inch (1.75 cm). And they are thirsty like vampires after a diet. the worst? The dragon flies don’t come before mid June and the robins are not here yet. 😦
Thus, I am a bit protective with my clothes as you can see in the outfit photos. I should have added a hat. No, not for style, but the mosquitoes bite into my scalp. Not funny.
What will you do on Mother’s Day? Have you picked your outfit already? How do you like the above clothes? Which one would you wear?

Top of the World OOTDs
The Top of the World Style Winner is picked by a random generator from the party two weeks ago. The reasons are as follow: Each party runs a week minus 5 minutes. At the time of scheduling a new party, the old party is still in full swing and blogger still can join. To give all guests the same chance, the old party has to have closed before drawing the winner. In plain English, the Top of the World Style Winner visited the linkup party two weeks ago.
The winner of this week’s feature is Sabine Gimm, the blogger at Bling Bling Over 50 who submitted her winning post at the 108th linkup party. She really knows how to pull off two statement pieces in one outfit! What a great look these striped wide pants with trendy sleeves make! The unique belt is icing on the cake!
The post by Debbie at Fashion Fairy Dust became Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav as you clicked her post the most. Her white lace trimmed sundress looks so romantic with the floral kimono and the Western style inspired statement necklace. This look makes me want to take a vacation in the desert somewhere in the Southwest. 🙂
Kim, the blogger at Champagneista, became Top of the World OOTD My Fav. She really rocks this high-low hem floral print wrap dress. I love floral print on black and high-low hems. Aren’t the sleeves cute? ❤
