Comfy and cold


Howdy, there!  I hope your weekend is off to a fabulous start.  Caleb and I kicked off our weekend by watching way too many episodes of 30 Days on Netflix.  Once we get hooked on something, it's hard to break the habit.  Good thing our vices are merely television series!

Moving right into fashion...  I wore this outfit to class the night the front came in.  I kept it comfy because, well, class is nearly three hours long, and while I am so excited to study globalization on Wednesday nights, sitting that long in one place isn't exactly exhilarating.  It's not unusual to catch me sitting cross-legged in class or see my knees pulled up to my chest as I lean on them pensively (my brain works better that way), so jeans were a wise choice.  I'll inevitably stray from this, since I find myself attracted to dresses and skirts more often than practicality permits me, but I thought I'd stick to a flash-free ensemble for the first night.  (And I promise I sit more lady-like when I dress the part.)

Enough philosophical ramblings about my choice - it was darn comfy.  I wanted this cardi the moment I saw it.  It's perfectly baggy, and I'm actually wearing a sweater underneath, so it provided plenty of warmth.  The scarf, which was part of my Christmas gift from Caleb, is super soft, so I quite enjoyed fiddling with it throughout the day.  What do you think?  Did he pick a good one out? 

And how are you surviving the cold, lovelies?  I was born in the Mediterranean and raised in Texas, so I find myself to be entirely cold-blooded.  In other words, I'm freezing my hiney off in this current chill.  I suppose it's better to be cold-blooded than cold-hearted, so all is well, I suppose.
