I'm torn between framing them on my wall and using them for the purpose for which they were intended. Something about having one of these gorgeous flowery fabric squares in my pocket sounds so warming during this cold snap.

We were carried home in a sea of people and stopped for a lunch surrounded by other button wearing, flag waving people. It was an exciting day to be in Washington.

This weekend my baby sister and I are going to see the Inauguration. It’s supposed to be freezing cold and there are suppose be a bazillion people there. We don’t have tickets and I actually don’t have a winter coat (hmmm, that sucks) so we are going to bundle up as best we can and throw ourselves into the fray. I’m also sheering off more of my hair than I’m comfortable with and my best friend from high school and her boyfriend and a pizza are meeting me at the salon (she’s getting a pixie, be impressed with her bravery) and spending a blessed night at my parents’ house and giving my baby brother a big hug before he goes back to Philadelphia for school.
What are you up to?

After two weeks I am settling into the rhythm of work. Of getting up in dark and taking the metro through the chilly city and of sorting out my desk chair and I’ve almost mastered the right number of layers to wear to be prepared for my chilly office. My boss’ is nice, there is a good happy hour near by and an indian lunch buffet across the street. Here’s the problem: after a year in an athletics department, a year as a nanny and six months of unemployment I have nothing like appropriate work clothes. SO! Time to get cracking. I’ve bought a couple of the tradition J. Crew Number 2 Pencil Skirts but I find myself wishing (generally around 7:30 am when I’m standing in front of my closet feeling very grumpy and cold and sleepy) that I had a lookbook for my particular closet and my particular job. I've been wearing the same basic thing every day. Maybe it's time to renew my subscriptions to some fashion magazines.
My Work Uniform
J.Crew v neck top / J.Crew merino wool sweater / J.Crew j crew / Old Navy / J.Crew cotton pencil skirt / Wolford black opaque tight / A|X Armani Exchange opaque stocking / Michael Kors tortoise jewelry / Pearl Earrings / Justine Brooks charm pendant (my pinecone isn't this one but I love it so much)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from us and ours to you and yours. Resolutions are being made, new jobs starting. I like Gretchen Rubin's idea of a one word theme for the year, what are your resolutions this year?
Home. On Christmas Eve. In the snow.
