here are a couple of outfits:
we will talk about the one on the left in a minute.
the one on the right is what i'm wearing today, complete with tall nonfat no whip pumpkin spice latte. it also might be what i was wearing last night while playing cranium with some hilarious people.
the one on the left (you know, the one where mollie jean is looking at me like i'm a lunatic for taking self portraits with my phone in a mirror during lunch break) is something that i wore to work the other day.
and i loved it. a lot. i don't know what it is about the stackable layering quality of winter clothes, but it gets me every single time. i'd like to say that i love it because it's cozy & comfy, but something tells me i also enjoy the permission i'm given in the colder-weather months to just cover up my body & call it a day.
when i think about winter clothing, i think about nights out in dallas, wearing long shirts that i pretended were dresses, with tights & high heels. about the chilly air & outdoor bars with those tall heaters. i think about nights out in slidell, wearing a silk skirt, a borrowed sweater, & my new black boots. i think about chilly nights at the sae house, bundled up & huddled around the trademark bonfires of the winter months.
so, i think that's another reason i love cold weather clothing: the fond fall & winter memories they summon.
i know one thing for certain, though: i have an immeasurable & insatiable love of scarves.
and the ever-so-elegant jeggings.
