13.4.11

but maybe I could get away with it . . .

The air couldn't settle on how it wanted to be today. When I took my son to school I was wearing shorts, these loafers, and this white sweater. It was sunny and warm. By mid day the wind picked up and I changed into jeans. Soon it was sunny and SNOWING and windy. I finally had to grab a hat trench and this miraculously warm and soft, hand knit scarf. I am so happy to have the tools to adapt to change.

Shoes, sweater, hat, coat, belt and purse: thrifted
Pants: Levis
Scarf: A very cherished gift from a very thoughtful friend. I am sorry you can't see all the different buttons in shades from cream to burnt orange and mustard. And it feels softer than a baby lamb slung over your shoulders. Well, I have never actually touched a baby lamb, but I have been completely preoccupied by the the thought of obtaining one for a day to just hold and pet. There is a fresh batch of them grazing alongside one of the roads I have been frequenting and I have nearly had to pull over to just get a closer look at them through the fence. I have imagined myself jumping over the fence and just grabbing one. It's a little nutzoid. But this scarf is doing me just fine for now. Thank you sweet friend for keeping me out of jail for attempted lamb stealing (since I know I would get caught. I ran the scenario over in my head. It's . . . sort of a bad idea. . . )

Those jeans are perfection! I love the relaxed, almost boyish fit, especially paired with those amazing loafers! Preppy but chic - love it!

And, holy moody weather! Happy you look gorgeous in anything Mother Nature throws your way!

I don't think I've ever seen a more perfect color for a trench. Wonderful for a crazy-weather day!

That weather sounds like Chicago weather! One second it is warm, the next it is 40 and raining.

I love the color of your jacket. You always do a warm color palette in your outfits and I envy it. Somehow I always gravitate to black and grey. I really try hard to make browns work for me but, i just have a hard time with them!

I've read your blog every week or so for the last year, your pictures are so lovely and your color sense is awe inspiring. I've taken so may lessons from you on matching textures, patterns and color schemes, and now your life lessons are transcending into my life as well. I've never commented before, because reading your words is like hearing my own personal conversation in my head--and I don't usually do any self commentary, usually. It felt appropriate, almost necessary to leave a little note to you now at this pivotal moment in pursuit of your new endevorer. Change is good, it's very natural and human. To change is to grow, and I am all for that. I applaud you in your continuing effort to be a better you, it's inspriing. This is not quite the "little" note I thought it would be, but I just had to get these thoughts to you.

Aw shucks! I'm just glad it could come in handy during the springtime!!

And I'm glad that you are so happy.

Wish I could be out there in two shakes of a lamb's tail to join you in your curious weather adventures. As well as the obvious, much bigger adventures.

You look good happy.
