So much SNOW!

Seriously, I have about a two feet at my house right now. I went to pick up J from work yesterday and almost died on the way there. It took around 4 hours to get to her workplace and back when it usually takes maybe an hour and a half. So ridiculous. The snow really is beautiful, but it just makes it a pain to get anything done. And our power keeps going out. Anyways, I've been trying to have more fun with my clothes, partially since I'm so bored and stuck at home, and partially because I'm inspired by all the fashion blogs I've been reading lately. So yesterday I dressed up just to go pick up J. I'd gotten so bored wearing jeans and long johns that I just decided to layer the crap out of my legs and wear a skirt.

I'm wearing leggings from target, thigh high socks from, thrifted boots, a skirt from urban outfitters, shirt from old navy, and a thrifted sweater.

My coat and gloves are from target and the scarf was made by a girl I went to high school with.

By the way, I absolutely hate my hair right now. It's too long; I haven't cut it in over two years and it's just completely blah. I hate wearing it down, but it's getting too long to wear up. I'm planning on getting it cut, but I don't have the money for that right now. Until then, I just don't know what to do with it.

This is how I've been dressing most days. Same coat, scarf, and gloves, with my worn out jeans and long johns. This was a few days ago, before the roads had turned to ice. They had been driven on just enough to pack it down perfectly for skiing so my mom and I strapped on the cross-country skis and had some fun.

Today I stayed at home all day. The power was out for quite awhile although it's back on now. I'm thinking of baking some cookies and watching a movie.I've been drinking tea and reading. I'm wearing the same sweater as yesterday (it's so so warm) and a really old shirt that I can't remember were I bought it, along with the same worn out old navy jeans and some really thick cable knit leggings that I think I bought at target. No shoes since I haven't gone out, but if I did, it'd have to be those same red boots.

I don't wear my glasses much these days, but I like how they look today. Besides, I'm too broke to keep buying contacts, glasses save me money.

Anyways, I'm not sure if I'm going to keep doing this, but it's kind of fun to play with my clothes and take pictures and stuff, so I might.

Edit: I did end up going out, J's power was out so I went to pick her up so she could hang out here until it came back on.

I wore this coat I got at Buffalo Exchange back in August (it was so cheap!) and the super soft scarf and gloves (I have a hat that matches too, but I don't look good in hats most of the time) I got for christmas last year. And the ever-present red boots. Can't wait until this snow melts off and I have other options for footwear.

Looking at it now, I think this coat would look better with a skirt. I have this fantastic olive wool high waisted pencil skirt I got at a thrift store a few years ago, I might try that. And actually, even after the snow melts off I won't have many more footwear choices. I really need to go shoe shopping.
