inclement weather

sweater - stepdad's, skirt - thrifted, tights - garage sale, purse - thrifted coach, shoes - aldo, scarf - christmas present in highschool

Wow, so things have been kind of crazy for the past month or two. The weather was insane in November. I honestly can not remember a single time that we had snow that actually stuck before Thanksgiving, but it happened this year. I had to leave work early in order to get home safely, and the drive that usually takes me all of forty minutes took over three hours. Luckily I had my friend to keep me company, but goddamn it was intense. Periodic stops every hour or so kept me from going insane, but I was not dressed for the weather. Shoes that offer some traction are an awful nice thing to have when you're trying to not fall on your ass in icy parking lots.

When I left for work that day, it was barely snowing at all, and definitely not sticking. I thought it would be no big deal. I won't say I wasn't cozy, since this sweater keeps me crazy warm and there is nothing like a good thick scarf wrapped around your neck three times, but little oxfords with extremely flat and smooth soles are not the best choice for weather like this. If I'd only known. We did get home safely, and honestly, it was kind of fun. Justina bought me coffee since I came I did pick her up from work and there's probably no one better to get stuck in a snowstorm with.
