Friday, I thought you'd never be here.  I took the day off as it's been a long, stressful week with my husband traveling (he arrived home last night) and me working and taking care of the boys. It was so nice to have the day off to catch up on laundry, go to lunch with my husband and littlest boy, and just relax.  I bought this sweater on popback in December because I am an apparent cashmere hoarder and decided I needed a third polka dot cashmere sweater.  I'm almost embarassed to admit that but honestly, I've enjoyed both the green/navy combo and the camel/gray version so much, I knew I'd love the poppy one too. I didn't wear it over the holidays, choosing to save it to have something fun to look forward to wearing during the gray, gloomy days of winter.  What better day to wear it than Wear Red Day in honor of Go Red for Women?  Did you wear red today?

I bought this Burberry scarf for my husband one Christmas years ago...seriously it might have been nine or ten years ago.  He wears it when he wears his dressy blackovercoat, which is not very often.  I think I "borrow" it to wear way more than he does.  All these years later it still looks fantastic...I'll have to look into more "gifts" to give my husband that I can use too!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!  Thank you for stopping by!


  1. Jeannie i LOVE this whole outfit!

  2. Jeannie, I love your outfit as well! Quick question - do you follow any running blogs? I'm an avid runner as well, and I'd like to branch out of solely reading fashion blogs to more lifestyle/running blogs. Let me know if you have any recommendations!
