Today is a different picture. I braved the slush and snowbanks to get to the gym and later joined the Greek mother and son duo for coffee before we all came back home. Later today I'll be tutoring and then we'll be going for a seafood dinner. Mmmm... Anyway, the sun is shining and life is looking a little more normal again, despite the now blind (and melting!) snowman that lives on my yard.
Because I thought I'd be out all day and I didn't want to look like a schlub tonight for dinner, I decided to put on actual pants. With a zipper and everything. I also knew I wanted to wear my mother-in-law's Christmas necklace. Here are the results:
Hello, color! As you all know red and black are a favorite color combination for me and once I started building my outfit in my brain, it was pretty much done and done. I'm wearing my old faithful Aerosoles boots, which are actually quite good for slush, because they're super comfy and have a rubber bottom. Also, they're slowly dying, so I'm happy to wear them in less than ideal weather while protecting my Frye babies.
I went with a flower theme today, obviously. What with the new flower necklace that matches the flower ring, which I always wear with silver flower earrings (also a gift from mom-in-law!), I'm obviously yearning for less snow. Although it's hard to tell in the above picture, I'm also wearing my black flower hair elastic... Here's a detail of the silver flowers:
The irony is that I don't actually like real flowers all that much. Jewel flowers are fine, though
Check out the sun stripes on my sweater! Melt that snow!
And there you have it. A simple outfit for winter and one that'll keep me comfy while getting me through the good (lobster!), the bad (tutoring), and the ugly (the pavements). Also, since today's lesson will focus on Christmas presents, it's nice to inject a little holiday cheer into my outfit!
