Pizza. Babies. Cake. Lounging. Leggings. Family. Non-stop eating. Cake (round 2). 
Over-sized Sweaters. A Doggy. Goodwill power shopping.  
Arriving with an empty suitcase that somehow ends up completely full.  
Just a few of my favorite things about going home!

I stole this orange-cream 100% wool jacket from my mom's closet for the weekend.  I picked it up for her at Goodwill last year and forgot how much I loved it...seems to be an on-going theme in my posts these days. The cut of the jacket reminds me of an old Ivan Grundahl piece, simple and functional yet interesting. Don't be fooled by how thin it is that sucker is WARM!  

I've been completely color-inspired since seeing all of the strong solid color-blocking knock out wimpy spring pastels at  Jil Sander's Spring 2011 presentation for Milan Fashion Week and have now convinced myself that the sooner I start wearing Spring colors the sooner the warm weather will start. I'm ok with having a Field-of-Dreams-attitude if you are ("if you build it they will come")? Anywho, the color of my jacket reminds me of eating Orangesicles in the summer and could most fittingly be the love-child of Coral Rose + Beeswax from Pantone's Spring 2011 Women's Fashion Colors.  I wore it with borrowed skinny cargos, borrowed purple sweater, thrifted pea-soup scarf, and my trusty thrifted lace-up Steve Madden NY boots that remind me of Nicholas Kirkwood for Erdem Fall 2010.

Who says winter has to be dull?
