I promised you a few posts with this jacket, so here’s number two – something a little more appropriate for dinner out, and a little less appropriate for traipsing around in the woods (a la yesterday’s post). Don’t forget to enter the $150 Muse gift certificate giveaway – it’s open through Monday.
We headed out to Ocean Beach the other afternoon where things were seriously windy – like my sweater would’ve flown away if not belted windy. Perhaps the hundred or so kiteboarders out in the water should’ve clued me in before I got out of the car. Milo seemed to dig it anyway, and my go-to bright summer maxi skirt adapted to the winter winds nicely.
Like clockwork, I start seriously craving travels to tropical locales about this time every year. In recent years I’ve been able to satiate that desire (as I’ll sacrifice just about anything for a trip to a faraway warm land), but this year our cross-country move prevented any such travels. And given that earlier this week temps on the West Coast got pretty frosty – yes, there was actually some frost in SF – I’ve got the travel bug now more than ever.
I’ll have to settle for a little roof-lounging in mid-60s sunshine over the weekend, but to those of you who are lucky enough to be heading off somewhere sultry, bon voyage!

Not trying to be a wet blanket, but January is pretty much the lamest of all months. The holidays are over, New Year’s resolutions have got us feeling guilty about any and all things fun and spring is nowhere in sight. There is one redeeming bright spot to this oh-so-cold month, however – all those things you’ve been eying all fall (but that Santa didn’t get the memo on) are now on serious sale, so it’s an excellent time for a little To: Me, Love: Me present action. And the best part? No thank you notes.

Winter white seems to have made a serious splash on the scene this season, and I really dig it – it seems that the antiquated no-white-after-Labor-Day rules are all but extinct, no? Regardless, let’s embrace the rule-breaking in all its glory while there’s still some semblance of a rule.
