awesome hot cakes

It takes me 45 minutes to walk to work from my apartment and I do it happily four times a week. Up and down hills, past the same buildings, rushing through the same intersections, constantly almost getting hit by oblivious drivers and bikers, zig zagging around the slow walkers. These are a few of the sights along the way. Those "awesome hot cakes" sure sounded tempting... maybe next time I'll have to leave myself some extra time. It might be nice to slow down in the middle of all that rushing, rushing, rushing.

I walk about halfway to my office with my boyfriend each morning. It is such a pleasant way to start the day...much more so than on Muni! Yuck!

I love your light, feminine layers. Cold weather always means heavy knits and fabrics to me. I might have to give your approach a try! Looking lovely as usual, Ashley!

Even if you are rushing it's still awesome that you take the time to walk that long. I used to do that daily in Spain but then came back to the US and it's zoom around my bike everywhere. Amazing pattern on that coat & love the touch that color of tights add.. you are a hot cake! (ok, lame I know, just couldn't help myself : )

I love the jumper with the striped blouse underneath! Don't ask why, but it reminds me of Willy Wonka! X-)

Oh, since you like collars too, maybe you'd like to join my little giveaway. You can win one of two Peter Pan collars! :-)

I think all shops should proclaim how awesome their goods are that proudly - you should definitely stop and savour them some time.
