At this point, late February it is feeling like the snow will be with us for some time. There's so much of the stuff in Omaha at the moment that the city is running out of places to pile it up. Another 6 inches last night, more on the way Friday-it is getting downright exhausting planning my life around being trapped indoors. We've been so lucky in recent years with freezing cold, but relatively little snow that we've become spoiled. Thank goodness I have a teenager to dig out my car for me😁.

Fragrance-Coriandre because it has a tomato leaf note. Subtle reference, but eh, it works for me.

Probably not destined to be a favourite, so likely to be passed along to someone taller that can do it justice. On someone statuesque, this could be elegant. I could shorten it, but the top wasn't quite right either.

I rarely use terms like "Amazing": but that's honestly the best way to describe how I felt in this outfit. I made the clasp for the jacket by combining a sweater clip and a large brooch. An outfit this 70s demanded equally retro jewellery. This is a good example of, "boring on the hanger, incredible on the body". I'm so glad I gave it a chance. I mean, that print is nuts up close, but from a distance it just looks like a beige abstract.

I'll leave you with the new patch I bought for my motorcycle jacket. It is quite large. Didn't think in 2019 it would be necessary, but here we are.
