    Cyber-drooling on your bag! Do share details of your find!Friends and I were just talking about why we like certain blogs and not others and I said the key for me is "relatability" (if that's even a word). I have to say, you are my favorite blog in terms of this. I love your style and it's accessible! That is rare! Keep up the great work in 2013!Thanks!

    Another great outfit! Just wondering why you never wear your over the knee boots anymore? Are they out of style? Do you no longer like them? Thanks!

      Thanks :). I wear them (just wore them yesterday to work). they are still my favorite boots. I don't get to take pictures everyday so they don't appear much on my blog anymore.

    I wore something very similar a few weeks ago, but now I want to re-wear it and add more jewels. I really like that scarf – is it anything specific or just a general pashmina?As far as your hair goes, I really like your current hair color so maybe stay there? can't wait to see it either way 🙂
