It's not here yet, spring, and even the chipperest people around these parts are dragging themselves across the pavement, trying desperately to leave coats behind. You can see here that the little piles of snow have melted (which is partly why I went back to this spot for pictures) but every news outlet, tweet, and facebook update is warning that we're going to get more on Friday.
I've been living in this striped dress since I bought it. I remember seeing it in the J. Crew catalog and pining over it (even though I don't really like the zippers on the sides) until finally prancing across the hall in the mall when I saw it hanging on a rack in the front of the store. My grubby little hands were not to be separated from it and it came home with me even though that was weeks and weeks before any appropriate temperatures were going to surface.
And of course, there is my funny trench. I've been looking in every single store I walk by to try and find a classic trench, but have yet to find my trench-mate. The ones I end up liking are always $200 or upwards, which does not fit into my little world's budget!
Meet my little fox friend! He is another Zentall pin that my mother got in a lot with the seahorse gentleman, and I love having him about the world with me. He's very fantastic.
