What an exhausting week! My sleep schedule is completely screwed up, and it's not even because of Daylight Savings. I seem unable to force myself to go to bed at a reasonable hour and I certainly pay for it every morning. After work last night I had rehearsal for our gig tomorrow out at my parents' house that went longer than expected and when I got home (an hour later) I wasn't tired enough to go to sleep. The road out to Woodbury was a muddy mess and I was a little afraid that I might get stuck--in my hometown we have two additional seasons each year, mud season (right about now) and bug season (when the mosquitos and black flies come out). I'm serious, the mud is madness.

I wanted to give my coat another chance to shine on the blog before I put it away for spring and summer. We're not there yet, but it's definitely starting to warm up and pretty soon I'll be swapping out the winter wear for leather and denim and jackets, oh my! Also, this skirt may be my new favorite. It was calf-length when I found it at Goodwill (they should rename it Goodskirts, I always get so lucky!), but I could tell that the full skirt and the heavy wool would make for a really fabulous mini. It's not exactly S/S material, but you can bet I'll be wearing it non-stop until it makes me sweat :)
I feel like I'm cheating on color a little bit today. I was really enjoying my brights earlier this week, so I'm not entirely sure what happened here except that I was half asleep when I got dressed. I did try to spiff up the outfit a little bit with the addition of my burgundy belt and fancy blue tights, but it is a pretty gloomy day outside so I guess the darker hues are appropriate. You can bet I'll be going green tomorrow!
