So, yes, I've just begun this blog, but already I'm going to take a break! Ridiculous I know. The reason being ::drum roll:: I'm moving back to Texas next month! And between work, studying, packing, saying goodbyes, etc., a blog has just taken the back seat.

Never fear, I'll be sticking to the original plan of not purchasing any clothing and hopefully I'll be back to update you very soon.

Love Bows

Aren't these shoes adorable?? They'd be great with almost every color of tights...

Shirt: Old Navy
Cardigan: Old Navy

Spring has Sprung in the land of Catalogs

Yep! While here in Chicago we are still dealing with inches of snow and frigid temps (and will be for months) in the happy land of catalogs, Spring has Sprung. Check out THE cutest outfit below. Don't you just love the hat and open back? It makes me want to ride gondolas in Venice....

And by the way, Kristine wore the most adorable teal oxfords to a little get together last night. I would love a pair of oxfords to wear with bright white knee high socks this spring. Keep up the lovely outfits girls!

Day 4: 10 minutes late, better call Kate....

As a joke yesterday, I requested from our office manager that we be allowed to have a snow day today, knowing full well that I take the train to work and nothing should really stop me from arriving as usual. Apparently snow also affects train though..... After waiting through 5 of them this morning before being able to board and another 20 minutes for a bus, I arrived at work about 15 minutes late with the office in a slight state of panic. I'm never late....actually I'm usually about 30 minutes everything. It's a disease really. But yes, a Late Kate is apparently nothing to scoff at around here.

Despiste the incredibly cold temperatures, I braved the weather wearing this today:

Shirt: Old Navy
Dress: Forever 21
Tights: Target
Flats: Aldo
Necklace: Francescas

And yes, it is a strapless dress that I have made winter friendly. Try it!
