Friday

This is the view I had while waiting for the Metro this morning. A ballfield covered in fog and frozen dew looked almost purple and teal in the early morning light. Very pretty.

Today is cold, but there is no wind chill so I felt comfortable with almost-bare legs and my knee-length coat. I got to work a bit early so I could leave early this evening to have Happy Hour and then go to a friend's co-ed baby shower/cocktail party with the hubby (thank you Kim for not making me guess the melted chocolate bar in a diaper!).

Black merino shift from Banana Republic, tan Bern boots from Duo, black, gray and olive striped cashmere kneesocks from Christmas, black coral necklace from Mexico.

Hair is second day; I brushed it out, twirled pieces around my finger and used a curling iron on big sections and finger combed afterwards.

    Hair and make up are looking fab in the last few pics!

    I’ve found a fab website you might be interested in (ships to US)where you can essentially design your own dress and have it made. I haven’t used the service but I’ve had a lot of fun designing my ideal dress!

    Allie,
    You are always pretty–but the last two days you are just positively glowing. You look so chic, pretty and happy. Love the LBDresses you wore today and yesterday.

    I love this outfit – must be the knee socks. I think I like them because they bring the look of a longer boot. My “knee high” boots hit just above midcalf and don’t have quite the look I long for.
