Last of February

There aren't too many months where I greet their ends with more excitement than sorrow of their passing.

Yes, we are already two months into the year, but we are two months closer to spring, and I feel creatively spent when it comes to dressing warm enough to survive this winter. This resulted in more shopping than I would have liked this month, but it did yield some good purchases. More on that next week.

This weekend I'm looking forward to heading up to Boston and celebrating my baby sister's 21st Birthday. She makes me feel so old! What are you up to?

Spots and dots

It's strange to say, but I don't think it was until I actually looked at these photos that I realized I was having an insanely good hair day.

Whiteout conditions

While snow may be a perpetual thought on my mind as of late, today I'd like to focus on a far better bunch of white things.

March is just around the corner, and I can't help but day dream about warmer days and all the wonderful whites I'm going to wear.

Got my love to keep me warm

It was another ridiculously cold day, the kind of day where it's ideal to not even leave the house at all, yet I somehow convinced Sean to take photos with me at the beach.

For as much as I complain about the cold and the inconvenience of snow, I must admit, there is such beauty in it, and it's something I want to capture in my photos. So out we go, into the arctic tundra.

I can at least take comfort in the fact that I was not the craziest person at the beach that day; I was not going for a run in shorts.

Monday night is date night

Most people don't look forward to Mondays. The weekend is over, you have to go back to work, Friday might as well be a million years away, and there isn't even anything good on television.*

However, Monday night is my date night and no matter how I might lament the end of the weekend, I always look forward to Monday. Last Monday Sean and I celebrated Valentine's day and this is what I wore.

This little black dress was part of the Kirna Zabete for Target line that I scooped up off a clearance rack and I'm sad to say it has not gotten much wear. It's my fault more than the dress's - which has a great neckline, a unique textured fabric, and pockets.

Despite the freezing temps, I was resolved to wear a dress. Admittedly, the pumps were worn exclusively in the restaurant, I had to change into my snow boots to navigate the New Haven streets and the icy death trap driveway at home.

We had a lovely dinner at John Davenport's, followed by dessert at Union League Café, and drinks at Ordinary (all places I would recommend if you are in the area). I can't think of a better way to spend a Monday night.

*Living in the DVR bubble has made me completely forget that my favorite show, Castle, is on Monday nights. I just don't watch it until Tuesday.
