What a difference! Wouldn’t mind the same weather these day…

And these are iPhone pictures, not that #2 isn’t obvious already 😉

      I have a hard time saying no to gingham shirts, even though I promised myself that I won't buy any more. I think I'm up to eight – shame on me 😉

    I have two gingham shirts but I.NEED.MORE. like yesterday…. The only problem I have is that I don't like to iron so another thing that needs to go the dry cleaners…. I finally found some cute ankle booties at our friends over at Tar-Jaaay and I am ok with the colder weather…. for now…. some of my coworkers wear flats sans socks 365…. BRRRRRRRRR LOVE your outfit!!! Might wear it tomorrow 😉

      See, I'm too cheap to take most stuff to dry cleaners haha. I wash my gingham shirts in cold water and hang dry them.
