To be totally honest, I've probably worn this dress six times since I bought it. It's so warm and easy, but I do promise that I don't wear it all the time. Somehow it just happened that outfit posts seem to have mirrored each other.
I have worn my wellies almost twenty-four-seven since getting them. I even wore them around work the other day when my flats were just too painful (in my defense, I was also doing some dishes and have a tendency to splash all over the floor and then slip in my puddles). The coat is new, a bit of an impulse buy, but necessary. I have a handful of ridiculous-ly colorful winter coats, and almost nothing in neutrals save for a black one who is missing several buttons. This green one, I justified to myself, is not only a nice color, but has something akin to toggles and a hood. I promptly discovered that the hood is large enough to pull down over my eyes to facilitate secret naps--not that I partake in such an activity regularly.
Today was one of those days where I can't be bothered with much, and yet I end up pleased with myself as a whole. I spotted this tutorial last night (along with loads of other bloggers it seems!) and thought, I will try that tomorrow! It's a bit different, but ended up quite nice. I slapped on some lipstick--ever since that Mad Men thing I feel sort of weird without it--and a trusty old flannel dress and somehow felt just right with the whole thing.
I'm sure as things get colder and there aren't even any colorful leaves left on the ground my general happiness with myself and the world at large will get a bit more sour, but for now I'm content with my boots and jackets and red lipstick.
