Home, home again

Oh it is so nice to be home! It is very warm here (like in the high 40's low 50's) and sunny and GREEN and smells like fresh dirt and springtime! A little time away always makes you appreciate the comforts of home.  I almost hugged my dress form and tripod and entire closet of clothes! I look at all of my clothes a bit differently now after being in New York.  They all have so much more potential!  I can't wait to spend a little time making new outfits!  I am such a dork, I wrote down three full pages of outfit ideas while I was away.  I got so inspired! While I know this outfit is not very flashy, I think I am seriously digging the whole utilitarian look and am pretty excited to wear colored socks with sandals!

This weekend I am catching up on my laundry and cleaning and playing with my son, but I plan to really hit the blogs, return some emails and answer the questions in my "ask me anything" place Monday morning.  In the mean time, HAPPY WEEKEND!! Thank you all so much for your comments and encouraging emails while I was away!  It really made me feel so connected even though I was so far away!  I am just so thankful for the friendships I have begun to cultivate here! I will be catching up soon!

COMMENT OF THE DAY: Well said.

what i would have worn... said...

Ooh I've been looking for a pair of shoes like this... Love this whole outfit actually.
I can totally relate to the feeling of coming home. Living so far from family I spend several months of the year travelling and as much as i love it, I always let out a breath I didn't even realize i was holding when i walk in the door...

I love how the socks match the small floral details of the scarf :)

I just recently discovered your blog through others, and I can see why you're such a big hit (wow, so cheesy). Your smile is so quintessentially adorable, not to mention that unexpected little pop! of green. This is very practical, yet still chic. :)

Those pegged jeans look so cute on you. And it's super-awesome that you came up with three pages of outfit ideas - I try to write down ideas for thing to wear, but half the time I end up wearing something completely different.

Your green socks peeking out from those gorgeous leather sandals just shout spring to me! Hooray for warmer weather... although there's snow on the ground here, again!

I am loving the colored socks!

That pop of green on your socks is so unexpected and fresh. Love it!

Oh, you look sooo sweet with this hairstyle.

I think this outfit looks fabulous on you, only I don't like the sock-shoe-combination, just shiny sleek black boots or a pair of sneakers would have been perfect in my opinion. Seems like I'm poled a bit differently than everyone else. The devils advocate seems to be my role in life... *grin*
