This is such a simple outfit for a rainy, sleepy day. But would you believe me if I told you the next few days are supposed to be in the 80s? I think that might be an April Fool's joke...This white sweater has got to be one of my favorite sweaters I've ever owned. It's just so wonderfully cozy, not too tight, bell sleeves, cowl neck, open weave, but incredibly warm. And I just love winter white on dreary days. So fresh, it just cuts through the gloom. Don't ask me why I thought capris + knee highs + boots was a good idea...
Remember how I have a "hypothetical engagement" when I graduate? (hehehe, see previous post for the story). Yesterday I was asked if I have any children. I mean, honestly, should I just put a sign on my forehead that says, "Single and Childless"? What else can I add, "Bitter"? (I'm kidding. I'm kidding.) But I decided that if I have a hypothetical engagement, perhaps I ought to start planning a hypothetical wedding. My coworker was eager to help, and brought a flyer of beautiful wedding cakes back from the Boston Flower Show for me. This one was my favorites (certainly that sharpie circle was not from me. nah, it wasn't circled so I could put it in a 'wedding' file or anything like that...cause this is all just purely hypothetical). How much fun are the carved initials in birch bark?!?! So love it!!!!

I found this "Love List" in Glamour magazine a month or two back...and if I'm going to be getting married (hypothetically speaking), I'd better be sure I'm working towards the New List. I really think this is such an important differentiation between ways of looking at relationships...and in Glamour magazine, no less! Every once in awhile, they've got something good! I think my favorite is, instead of listing what you want your man to look like, say, "I want to be madly attracted to him." That is so much more realistic and wonderful!

That's all for tonight, dears! Hopefully, if the weather really is nice the next few days, I'll actually be inspired to bust out some nice outfits (but not actually, like bust out, 'cause that would be a definite 'wardrobe malfunction'. Ahem.)
