As much as I love ’em, very rarely do wear skirts and dresses these days. The bitter cold makes them impractical; the working-from-home thing makes them not worth the effort and discomfort. Especially on days when my only face-to-face interaction is with a 10-pound dog who needs to be taken outside every two hours. ;)

On Saturdays, though? Skirts and dresses for the win. They make everything a little bit fancier, a little bit more special, and a little bit more exciting. (And they’re manageable if paired with warm tights… even in Chicago.)

This past Saturday was a lovely one. Mitch, Noodle and I woke up super late (Noodle’s the best dog ever and snores her little head off until 10 a.m., haha), took a long walk to a park, and then made cinnamon buns for breakfast. I drank three cups of tea–stickin’ to my New Year’s resolutions!–leisurely putzed around and cleaned the apartment, and took a 30-minute shower. Sigh.

I spent the afternoon shooting with Emily and Blair for the launch of their new (absolutely incredible) site, Wandeleur, and then met Mitch for dinner at Athenian Room, a local Greek restaurant and one of our favorite spots in Lincoln Park. (Mitch grew up in the neighborhood, and ate there pretty frequently as a child. It’s also where we went to celebrate after signing our apartment last year. It’s definitely a sentimental place for us!) After gyros, hummus, salad, pita, bread and baklava, we grabbed drinks uptown and then headed home to snuggle with Noodle.

Good weekend.
