Another snow day. You know, it's nice to be able to take midday outfit pictures since I'm off work, but it's unsettling to miss so many days. Weather makes a big impact on sales, so I'd like to ask the winter to deal with us more gently. Make it warm, please.

I don't love playing in snow, but forcing myself to act a bit peppier lifted my spirits. My red rain boots are turning out to be the best $3.50 ever spent at the thrift store. In retrospect, I wish I'd spent even more time outside and less time obsessing over the black/blue, white/gold dress controversy. I can't even bring myself to link that for you because I never want to think about it again.

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.

Ethical choices are bolded below. Retailers taking steps to become more ethical are bolded in gray.
