Right...so it is supposed snow like you don't know what here tonight. They are calling for some 8 inches here in Alexandria. This may the one time people in the eastern counties of MD and VA will get more snow than the western counties (in other words, we may have more snow than people like Slastena, a rare occurrence, for sure).
What a better way to say "hello" to what is no doubt going to be our last storm (and biggest in a long while) than to get all dolled up, go to a restaurant (only Sundays during Lent for this family), then head over to Harris Teeter to join the masses buying bread and milk. :)
The top is a combo of two J. Crew pieces, a white tissue tee with 3/4 sleeves that are elasticized at the "wrist," and a cashmere short-sleeved tee in striped citron and white. The scarf was a giveaway with some British magazine I bought in 2005 (it looks really good for a giveaway). The jeans are Talbot's and very tailored...they remind me of something Audrey Hepburn would have worn. The shoes are Etienne Aigner in navy suede and leather...with the most polished decorative buckle. The headband is J. Crew.
My hope is that the pieces keep me warm...it is CHILLY out there.
If the outfit doesn't keep me warm, maybe the coat will. It is the Lady Day with thinsulate in that amazing Mediterranean blue. Lovely and toasty!
As usual, ignore my funny face...Jim grabs these shots so quickly, I have to make due with what I get. :)
