the moral wardrobe: snowed in

high waist flare jeans gr6bell bottoms

There's no better time for a blog update than today, because we're snowed in (by snowed in, I really mean we can't drive anywhere without shoveling out the whole road first; we could certainly take a walk outside).

I wore this earlier in the week. I almost always pair these jeans with moccasins for a truly vintage feel. I like that they verge on costume; I can pretend I'm a cool girl in the late 70s.

  • Top - People Tree, fair trade

  • Jacket - secondhand

  • Jeans - made in USA

  • Moccasins - secondhand via ebay

the moral wardrobe: no end in sight

I have never felt colder than I felt this morning on the brief walk from my car to the downtown coffee shop where I work. At 8:30 this morning, it was about 7 degrees outside, which may be nothing to those of you who are used to it, but it's incredibly low for temperate Charlottesville (and for me, a fairly recent transplant from Florida).

Anyways, I've been relying on my thrifted Bean boots whenever a walk through the snow is called for. With temps under freezing, the snow is hanging on.

the moral wardrobe: hipster button

h1 h6h2

I really tried to pull off the "hipster button" (all the way buttoned up), but I started to feel like I was suffocating about an hour into this look and had to undo it.

In other news, I burnt two fingers on my left hand with steam rising from the potatoes I had for lunch, so it's rather hard to type anything. Eek! It stings.
