I’m sitting here, shivering, in flannel and a shawl. My landlord has been replacing the boiler and I think I have heat, but since I like things chilly, I haven’t tried. But it felt weird to squint at the photos on my phone and realize I was going out with bare legs just a few days ago.

This was one of those days where I went through several outfits and finally went with something that worked rather than something good.

A bit of sparkle! I like how this one came together.
I had Friday off so I took a very long walk to hit the consignment and shoe stores.
I put this back, but I’m tempted to go back for it. $13, I like the fit a lot, I’m a fan of bows. I’m not sure what bottoms I could wear it with, though – jeans are fine, I suspect my denim skirt would work. But is it too dark for the khaki button up? Hmm.
Ralph Lauren sparkle sweater. I loved the color and fit, and really loved the neckline, but it was scratchy and too short. Alas.
Danskos! They’ll be $15 if they’re still there tomorrow. I’m tempted. I love this Mary Jane clog look. I’m debating what I’d wear them with, though. Hmm.
And then off to DSW. I have a $20 off card that expires next week, and I’ve been wanting brown boots.
Bare Tracks. I think I like the shorter leg, but I’m not sure if that opens up more wear options or fewer. Are they too cowboy? I don’t want cowboy, I know that.
Steve Madden Girl. Not cowboy! I think I like them a lot? My hesitancy is that I had to size down to an 8 for my heel not to flap (wearing regular socks, which is my norm with jeans or over tights), plus I didn’t need the wide calf version. I walked around a bunch and worried that I started to feel my little toe rubbing on the side. But if I size back to 8.5, I’m afraid they will be too big. I’m so torn.
I’m half tempted to use my card on accessories. Like this awesome thick, warm plaid scarf/wrap. It’s $30, and I keep telling myself I could probably buy fabric for half the price and make my own, but this is right there, you know? I really want a lot of plaid this year. I always want plaid in autumn, I know, but I’m really all about it this year, ha.
