We may be back to 30-degree weather and even light dustings of snow, but dammit? It’s spring, Chicago, and nothing’s going to force me back into those snowboots*.
I love this little dove-gray dress (we’ve talked about this before), but it has proved difficult to style in layers.

Today, however, I spent five minutes chucking on different cardigans, jackets, and sweaters before I finally called off the search and settled for tried, true and simple**.
And – what’s that? In my hand? Oh, that’s just my awesome friend Emily’s digital camera – which she has loaned to me (kindly and generously) for the express purpose of better documenting that blogging. (And yes, Em, it has taken me this long to figure out how to use it . . . oops.)
