At last, at last! I can return to my regularly scheduled life, with apologies for the mysterious vanishing. There’s a lot to juggle sometimes.
I woke up today and it was negative 5 degrees. Somehow this just seems completely unreasonable; haven’t we suffered enough*? At any rate, I had mad plans to wear my birthday-present-dress (as seen on Tuesday’s Glee – Quinn and Rachel always seem to wear my favorite clothes) as a treat for surviving the epic busy time, but the idea of hunting up tights and figuring out which jacket to match just seemed overwhelming on a day when I couldn’t bring myself to get out of my bed (it’s chilly beyond those covers.)
So I ended up in some simple knits and jeans and a big ole cozy sweater;
These are my Joe’s Rockers; I bought them secondhand at a Buffalo Exchange because they fit well and they’d been perfectly hemmed to my height. Joe’s and A.G became my favorite denim brands when I was the specialist at Bloomies. They last ages, they’re super-comfy, and they have great cuts that flatter just about everyone.
Also, I seriously would never have thought to wear this top again if it weren’t for the Great Closet Closure. Now, it’s become one of my top-tier pieces for mixing/matching. Of course, it’s too freezing to wear just that, so I topped it off with my favorite Not-Technically-A-Snuggie;
I love this sweater more and more. It’s so snuggly, it’s versatile, and the colors are wonderful for mixing.
Now that my life has settled – somewhat! – I’ll hopefully be back in a little bit with some summarizing, etc, basically filling y’alls in on what’s been going on in my head as I approach the end of the first month of no-shoppin’.
*One of my favorite Cubs quotes ever was a commentator who said “Chicago, where the phrase “Haven’t we suffered enough?” has no meaning.
