But if I'm to say how madly I adore you...

So... this will be my last post before I head south for the week. But not to worry! I've rounded up a whole slew of my favorite fellow bloggin' gals to lend a hand next week. I can't wait to see what they come up with! It should be a really fun week around the blog.


There's really not much else to report from around these parts because it's been work, work, work for the past few days. Here I am in another outfit with very conspicuous knees. I'm getting used to the whole idea. Also, someone commented that they'd heard the Hansel from Basel tights fell apart after the first wear, but I found the contrary to be true. These were quite sturdy and held up well after a day's wear.

Love the tights! It's like elbow pads...but knees. (I know...I'm so profound). Anyway, I also love those boots. I'm still trying to decide if I can pull of some lace ups.

Have fun in the South!
