The un is peeking out today.  I have the office window open and am loving the spring breeze.

White ribbed tank from Caslon, green fine gauge cardigan from Lands End, paisley scarf from Lands End Canvas (three knots and then knotted together to make necklace), black pencil skirt from Ann Taylor, silver hoops and cuff and chain with wedding band (still doesn't fit).
And the shoes:

These are the Value by Franco Sarto (name is misleading, they aren't $25 pumps…).  More comfortable now that I added Footpetals, but no pair of Sofft sandals…
Standard makeup (lipstick is Laura Mercier's Pink Champage with some freebie clear lipgloss from Sephora over it, and I do have the Bare Escentuals Buxom cream eyeliner on the top lash line).  Hair was a quickie job – wash, add some Bumble & Bumble styling cream, dry with paddle brush and rush out of the house.

    Have you ordered anything else from Lands End Canvas? I am wanting to order a dress from there, but am a bit worried about the sizing. Lands End stuff can be really big! If you have, is it similar?

    This is the scarf:

    It is 27″ square. I fold it on the angle – one point to center, opposite point to center, fold again (like you do when you make a square scarf a headband). End up with a 3″ wide band. Tie a single knot in the center of the strip, then two on either side. The tips/ends I tie a very tiny knot at the tips just to close the loop.

    OK, Allie, I don’t understand the 3 knot scarf trick…..it’s cute as hell, but what size was the scarf and where did you place the knots??? Sorry, but I need more visual help. Thanks! Glad to have you back, BTW. Missed you while you were “on sabbatical”.
