earn your stripes

I never thought I'd be saying this in my Texas life, but I am tired of cold weather.  I think this is the first time in my (nearly) 5 years here that we've had a real winter, and I'm ready for it to be over.  I'm ready for bare legs, sandals, and all of the stripey, nautical awesomeness that is hitting stores right now. 
I'm wearing the above today - Merona Draped Collar Pullover from Target in Navy/Polar Bear.  It's a gauzy, lightweight blend of cotton & poly - I love it. 

F21 Heritage 1981 Knit Stripes Dress.  This is adorable & must be sought out for $14.90.

Martin + Osa Maritime Chevron Maxi.  I've been lusting after this ever since it showed up in their spring lookbook.

Urban Outfitters BDG Long Sleeve Striped PE Cardigan.  This cardi or something like it is on my spring/summer wishlist.

Have you been on L.L. Bean's website lately?  I don't know if I ever had until recently, but I'm glad I stumbled in.  A couple favorites from their nautical lookbook:

Finally, no pining-for-summer post would be complete without mentioning these old favorites of mine:

Sperry Topsiders.  Mine are actually navy patent, but I couldn't find a photo so this will do.

Oh, and HI readers, if there are any of you left out there.  I can't say for sure that my blogging hiatus is over, but I will say that I'm going to try.  I've been a combo of busy, lazy, and trying to decide what direction to take this blog in.  I love fashion, but I'm not entirely sure that fashion blogging is for me.  I like having a forum to showcase my creative outlets, but there are long periods of time when I don't create jack.  So we'll see what happens.  But for those of you who are still tuned in, thank you for your loyalty, even though I don't deserve it.  :)
