Creaky bones

This was my walk to work on Friday. I understand that many of you are in something that resembles spring. Not so for us... not yet at least.


And while in black and white it is very pretty in reality it's cold, icy and dirty. Spring is beautiful because it is sunny and lovely but because of all the salt and sand on the road it's really dirty until all the snow melts and the street sweepers are out in full force.

I took my camera to work and this is what I look like when I'm headed out to lunch...

I generally don't shop at Old Navy because it's untidy for the most part and I object to standing in line to both try things on and pay. Perhaps that's my curmudgeonly attitude coming out. However, this journey was very nice! I found a parking spot, it wasn't too busy, I didn't bother to try the dress on and it was on sale plus an extra 30% off! Can't go wrong with that.

dress & leggings: Old Navy
brown tie belt: from a Joe Fresh dress
necklace: Joe Fresh
shoes: Camper twins bought in New York (swoon!)

Today I am thankful for long time friends who have different lives and schedules and still make the time to get together for dancing, laughter and good times! I'm also super thankful for having nothing to do on Saturday which allowed me to read and nap on the couch all day long. I finished The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield and it was fantastic!

Lady, we have the same dress! We're dress twins (as if we weren't twins enough already, looking as similar to one another as we do)!

We totally need to do one of those "wear it on the same day and see how we each style it" thingies.

Funny, my city looks about the same! I am so happy when all the sand and salt are finally washed away.
I love the dress - my friend has the same one in a plum colour. It looks lovely! I also like your outerwear jacket!

i feel the same about old navy! but they really do have the best sales....which is why when i do venture in, i rarely pay full price for something!

Wow, look at that snow! You'd think it was still early January from that shot. Hoping it warms up for you soon.

The blue of that dress is wonderful! Excellent purchase. =D

What a fab color and I love that necklace! I don't go to Old Navy a lot either, but that dress is a great find!

I always expect to find something great at Old Navy, but I've never actually walked out with something for me. It does have a pretty decently good baby section.

It was snowing tonight when we left the movie, and the radio had a song on that was vaguely reminiscent of Christmas. Still depressing, regardless of how much I love a good holiday.
