I normally don’t complain about Mondays (because I’m usually over-ambitious at the beginning of the week and convince myself that this will be the week I get back into the swing of things), but this Monday morning was arguably the worst ever.
Mother Nature paid Connecticut another visit and dumped nearly a foot of snow and ice on us… The weathermen really under-hyped this storm, like it was the complete opposite of what happened last week with “Juno”.

My brother drove me to the station, I hopped on Metro North, and 15 minutes later my boss texted us saying we would be working from home today…. I got off at the next stop only to find out that the train back home was coming.. in forty minutes… so there I was… stranded…. in the cold. Oh and then my train got delayed another 15 minutes. It was terrible. I think I’m still thawing out.

I spent the day dreaming of warmer temperatures and crushing on all the new arrivals from all my favorite stores. Here’s what’s on my radar for Spring:
