And while you are digesting your turkey and spilling lots of drinks while you cheer on your favorite football team (GO PANTHERS!) enjoy some fun internet reading to bring you back down to earth...or not. Heck. You know what? Just sit back, rub your belly and read on...
Guys, the truth is, most days I'm running errands and I'm in some seriously sensible flats. This day was grocery day - I usually hit up about 3 different stores - and I need shoes that won't wreck my feet. I also need an outfit that isn't fussy and keeps me warmish in the freezing grocery stores. So, this outfit isn't that fashion forward or that chic but it is functional! Fashion CAN be functional!
Since it was a more casual outfit I took some liberties with my hair and added a quick side braid to create a little bit of a punk vibe. I added a chunky necklace to finish it off. I could've quickly changed into some high heel boots if I wanted to dress it up a little. But in true form, I was exhausted by the end of the shopping trip and just left these comfy little flats on.
My winter clothes storage boxes have been unearthed from the basement and I am currently sorting through my vast collection of sweaters. I would really REALLY love to get rid of most of my ho hum sweaters in exchange for 2 or 3 fine quality ones that I fully adore. Efforts are underway and I have my eye on this off white sweater from Woolrich that would allow me to donate 3 other sweaters in it's place. It's expensive but it would be my only off white sweater. Honestly, since I don't go to an office job each day, my closet is just not getting the workout that it used to.
I noticed these pants hanging in my closet and remembered, even though I have worn them several times, I don't think they have appeared on the blog yet. This will probably be the last time I wear them this year since they are a bit too thin for colder weather. Adios!
Blanket scarves can be a bit annoying to wear but they sure do come in handy when you are sitting inside of a building that doesn't have the heat turned up enough! They get a bit annoying when you try to put your purse on your shoulder or do anything really that requires you to lift your arms over your head. Le sigh.
I picked up this scarf really on an impulse buy one night when we were downtown. I had not gauged the temperature correctly and ended up not dressing warmly enough. We ran into Mast General Store and grabbed this blanket scarf that I knew could keep me warm but not be to bulky for the concert at the Orange Peel that we were scheduled for later on. My expectations were correct! It wasn't bulky and actually ended up being the perfect amount of warmth!
I wear a LOT of what I know as "Long Over Lean" which basically translates to wearing longer tops with tighter bottoms. Like tunics over leggings. It is the most comfortable for me style wise because I feel it fits my body shape wonderfully. I feel like it elongates my legs a bit too when I keep the leggings the same color as my boots. Short girl problems!
