10th Commandment: February 28

Feb 28, 2014

Being from Montana, winter has little power over me.  Winters in Montana are seemingly endless.  They can start as early as September and end as late as May.  Snow in the summer is by no means unheard of in the Rockies.

But this winter, this winter is a different story.  I am so sick of being cold.  All I can think about is warm weather, sundresses and weekend trips.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to turn up the heat in my condo.  Again.

    I actually think I like the Baggu bag better than the more expensive Pottery Barn bag… love those nautical stripes. And you’re not alone in wishing for winter to end. If I have to spend one more morning layering cardigans over my dresses and putting on socks, then wellie socks, then my Hunter boots just to walk from my car to the office, I’m going to cry!

    I’ve been following Everlane since they launched. I am a huge fan and love to see you promoting them here. I have their weekender and it’s fantastic. I have even used it for longer (7-14 day) warm-weather trips.

    I think the LL Bean boat and tote bags hold up a little better than the Land’s End ones – LLB are stiffer material

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]
