Well, it’s cold and the snow is just around the corner here in Chicagoland; you’d think it was winter or something~!  So I’m celebrating all my favorite things of winter, my cold weather must-haves.

Clothes:  Sonoma thermal tee in grey paisley: holy crap this thing is warm and soft~  Unfortunately, this isn’t available  in an x-small, and the small is just swimming on me, so I had to take it in.  Worth it!  I bought it in another color,  that’s how much I love it~

Food:  Garam Masala Spice, I have been making this recipe non-stop (but with chicken), it’s great with naan (or latkes~)

Accessories:  Blue Sodalite Ring: this was a gift from my Momma!  I love how simple and sleek the design is, nothing to catch on, I can even wear it to work.

The cobalt blue of the sodalite is stunning IRL

Music: Red Ribbon Foxes and Winter Song these are the only holiday songs I ~want~ to listen to right now (I’m a little done with all the in-store holiday musak)

It’s so hot in Chicagoland, you’d think it was summer or something!  It’s so hot, I’m too lazy to try anything new or fun today, so I’m just relying on my tried-and-true staples: the favorite things of summer.  My favorite things tend to fluctuate based on the weather, so here are this season’s miss congenialities of the closet…

Jewelry: my new beaded earrings from Chicago Bead Company:

These glass beads have three little stripes, gold, black and a delicate green

Clothing: Old Navy striped shorts that I got on sale for $3! and my Kohl’s explosion of summer tee.

Food: Almond Milk Pancakes and Mexican Rice with Enchilada Sauce

Song: Allison Krauss “Jacob’s Dream”  (Warning, this song is so sad, you will cry like a little girl I’m not even kidding)
