in between days

I find this time of year a little weird--everyone else is pining away for spring, yet I am happily, cozily, ensconced in winter. The Christmas decorations are still up here. We just got a ton of Lake Effect and I can't wait to go cross country skiing. I am not ready to give up boots or tights or wool or my winter coats!

And yet...I know that many (most?) of you are thinking spring and spring wardrobes. This shop preview has a lot of cozy sweaters and even a coat. But a green and brown color scheme unexpectedly popped up, which made me think of nothing so much as muddy, wet spring!

  2. oooo some lovely pieces to look forward for at the shop.... I like the 1940s nubby brown wool full skirt but I'm sure it's an XS!
