Our kitchen wall has been painted, re-painted and is now primed again.

Spring Fashion Faves

I have finally accepted the idea that Spring is right around the corner. As a Chicagoan, I remained skeptical for a while. So, in light of the warmest day of the season, I've chosen some Spring fashion items I'm loving right now.

The precious driving moccasin with bow is J. Crew, as is the one shoulder Poplin Bridget dress, the vintage zebra stripe skirt and the Marquee satchel. The ballet flats are Cole Haan.

Here are two fabrics I'm considering. Thoughts?
