It's Friday. Yay! We don't have huge plans except for just relaxing. Jacob's orthopedist appointment was cancelled on Wedneday so he needs to keep his cast on through the weekend. He's being a good sport about it though. He's a good kid.

See that snow? It's been ever present for the last 6-8 weeks. I am trying not to complain because I wanted to get back to "the seasons" after living in Florida for a few years, but I am getting a bit tired of it.  Also, see that sun? That has not been all that present for the last 4 months.  When the sun is out, it is usually 15F or less. My photographers just love going out and taking pictures....Not!  One thing I have been depending on in this cold weather is the faux fur. It is just so warm and adds that extra touch without looking like you are really trying.

Cruise Planning



We booked a cruise for spring break and I can't wait. I have picked some pieces that would be perfect for the trip. Although I'd love to get everything on my list, that's not going to happen. Let's call this a wish list.

I already ordered the J. Crew scoop neck tees in a few colors (1).  I have realized that scoop or v-neck is the most flattering for me.  Most of my picks are casual, but we do try to dress up for one or two of the dinners. I think the Old Navy maxi dress (3) or the pink Express keyhole dress (10) would be perfect. And, I have to mention the Old Navy nylon tote (6).  It has a zipper closure, a cross body strap, and is fairly roomy. I already have something similar from Old Navy and it's perfect to hold just what you need for a an off-shore excursion or to hold your on-deck sunning essentials (it's also great for amusement parks).

The countdown has officially begun! Are you heading anywhere warm for a vacation soon?

1. J. Crew:  Vintage Cotton Scoop Neck Tee
2. Old Navy: Patterned Poplin Shorts
3. Old Navy:  Belted High Neck Maxi
4. Nordstrom: BP Stone Tassel Layering Necklace
5. Piperlime, Joe's: Reba Sandal
6. Old Navy: Nylon Tote
7. J. Crew: Halter Wrap Swimsuit
8. Macy's: Nine West Packable Hat
9. Old Navy: Jersey Shift Dress
10. Express: Pleated Keyhole Fit And Flare Dress - Rose

Coat: Forever 21 (exact)

Bag: Zara (similar)

Sunglasses: Loft (similar)
Earrings: Target

As I'm writing this, I'm also watching the Oscars red carpet and wow!  There are so many pretty and amazing dresses this year. I feel like the last few years have been pretty boring and a little safe. It looks like there area lot of stars that took a risk this year and it paid off. Lupita!! I can't wait to see the fashion compilations tomorrow.

Yes, this is another new coat. I love, love this coat. It is so warm and soft to the touch.  I also love the navy and burgundy combo and the faux fur collar.  I actually got it a few weeks ago but am just getting around to posting it. I've actually been kind of sporadic with my posting. I haven't had the time to sit down and even think of what to write. My part time work has been crazy and Jacob broke his leg about a month ago. He typically takes the bus, but now I've had to pick him up from school every day which means going early to find a spot and helping him out of the school to the car. If my husband is out of town, I have to bring him to school too which is a task because then I have to wake Laila up earlier, get her dressed, bring her in the car, then come back and get her ready for her bus. Jacob has an appointment this coming Wednesday and the orhopaedist said he will probably get the cast off and "walk out."  This will remain to be seen. I don't know how well he'll do after not walking or putting any weight on that leg for a month.  I know I am fortunate that I don't work full time and others have it much worse, but I'll be happy to get back to "our normal" soon.  

Have a great week all!

Green and Puzzled

Skirt: Forever 21
Tights: Target
Booties: Ann Taylor

I have become one of those puzzle people - jig saw puzzles.  I can do a 1000 piece puzzle in about 4-6 hours. And I've become obsessessed with finding puzzles on eBay that I haven't done.  The problem here is that I have a million and one other things to do but I have to finish the puzzle before I can move on to other things. Once the weather warms up, I'm sure I'll get outside and do warmer weather things but until then, I'll keep puzzling (is this a verb?).

Doesn't this scarf and coat go together perfectly?  I bought the coat first and then a few weeks later, I bought the scarf. It didn't even occur to me until I brought the scarf home that they were so good together.  I love when it works out like that!
