long time x no see, sweet friends!  so.  my hometown has been nailed with an insane amount of snow and ice the past few days which has given us all cabin fever, but also energized me to pick up blogging again [y-a-y].  my mind is racing with fashion stories and ideas i can hardly wait to share.  i do hope that you will forgive me for my absence + continue to follow along with what is inspiring me on the reg [pretty please!]  

today we will start with my longest running obsession of the season-- orange [colorful] overcoats.  you guys.  i couldn't get enough of it on the runway, so i obviously freaked when i spotted this beautiful option by french connection at NYC market a few months back.  what i love most about her; clean lines, sophisticated, on trend [albeit easy to wear], and won't break the bank.  what do you think?  xx
