a public service announcement.

Listen to your weatherman. Do not wear rubber shoes when he says it will sleet and hail the size of everlasting gobstoppers will fall on your head. Just because your little piggies are slightly claustrophobic does that mean you should give into their desires by wearing footless tights.
Just say no. Or they'll end up like this.
Why hello there, pleased to make your aquaintance.
Shirt/skirt: H&M. Tights: stolen from my mom.Shoes: Target. Hair: not cooperating.Ever. Pose:awkward. Apologies.

Some mornings I stumble out of bed and can't make coherent outfits/thoughts. I can't distinguish what is a sweater and what is a sneaker. If I do not have adequate amounts of pancakes and/or orange juice in my system, there is good chance you can find me walking to the bus without pants.

For days like those, these would really come in handy.

i am just a cotton headed ninny-muggins.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, my dear. I kept busy by baking colossal amounts of pie, entertaining bum college students, and watching Bolt in 3D (the most intense movie.EVER).

Today is my birthday* and I just opened my shiny new camera, which means pretty soon we'll have real live photos, folks (gasp). Until then, I am just sitting around watching Elf, eating this birthday cake that I am convinced is Hanukkah themed, and wondering if me and Buddy were separated at both. We both enjoy the same pastimes (see: making snow angels, smiling, eating Tollhouse cookie dough, snuggling etc.)

Oh and I'm also loathing the rain. For crying out loud, it's not even snow, it's just weird sort of slippery sleet stuff that seeps into your socks and gives you the sniffles. And I can't even wear a cute raincoat. I just resemble Randy from a Christmas Story (You know, in that part where his mom makes him where like 12 parkas and he can't fend off the bullies. STORY OF MY LIFE) for most of the wintertime. I need some alternatives to keep me toasty...

1.Yokoo Citron Snuggler, Etsy, $50. This is essentially the outerwear equivalent of your childhood blankey. Basically anything by Yokoo has my heart.

2.Long Yellow Gloves, Forever 21, $6.80. My mom came home with these bad boys last week and I keep *borrowing* them.

3.Aspen Anorak, Delias, $79.50. This would keep me warm without the whole Michelin Man look.
