This was my Grammy's dress and I love it. But I feel like an old lady. I tried some of Colette's layering advice and not too bad... I don't feel too bulked up here with the sweater and belt over top. If I look like a linebacker you would tell me wouldn't you? I also love pinecones- they remind me of the cedar forests where I grew up. My brothers and I would always have pinecone wars. Yes, I threw cones at them and yes I did try to hit my sweet little brothers often enough :) It was dark out today so these pics show you some good ol West Coast October weather.. I hope you don't see my goosebumps though. I miss the Hawaii sun already!
