I can't remember a winter that has been as strange as our 2011-2012 season. In the United States, we have had very little snow, few cold fronts that lasted longer than a week, and record breaking high temperatures in the 70s in February.
If you are thinking of breaking out that little sun dress, tossing the boots, and adding some color......not so fast. You don't have to revamp your closet just yet.
From March until Memorial Day, inventory your closet by color, fabric, texture, and classics. I like to stick with grays, whites (shirts), blacks, and navy. Other year around colors for the basics (slacks, jeans, shirts, Ts, dresses, jackets) include various shades of brown, indigo, and greens.

Valentines Day is upon us. Now, I realize the choices are mind blowing from a clever card, a whispered sweet nothing, or.......maybe a gift that results in pure selfishness. One that we give that WE adore.
I really don't want a box of chocolates after the holidays and Super Bowl gorging. I really don't want to throw out dead flowers. Yes, my favorites are daisies, and simple cut wild flowers. But, I was thinking..... What would I really want my Valentine to have? Something that I adore and would use myself.
I wore a certain perfume for years. Being a devotee, I pledged to make this my scent, my being, my presence. People would wonder, what is she wearing?
