But if I were a little more daring, I'm pretty sure I would wear these. Yes, they're long and dangly, but in an indie way that tells the world you don't care if they're in style or not. Though I think they might be. Next season.

Now that Jayn has solved the problem of what to tuck into your boots, I'm sure you are all breathing a sigh of relief and rushing to expand your footwear collection. So your next question will surely be, "But which boots should I buy?"
The answer is simple: these! Cute suede boots for $50 -- what more could you want? Well, a pair in all five colors, obviously.

OK - I know you are looking at the picture and thinking, "WTF?" Let me explain. I just returned from a sunny, warm, beautiful vacation in Miami... straight into weather in the teens with an impending snowstorm. Why do I live in NYC again? I can't remember... The most I can come up with, quite seriously, is that you can get a mani/pedi cheaper here than anywhere else (20 bucks, folks). In this frame of mind, I cannot possibly be expected to venture out into the bitter, brutal city. I will instead bundle up in ass-talking sweats and these so-ugly-they-rock $5 snugly booties.
At least until my boss calls and says, "WTF? Get your ass in here (and leave the rump writing and fugly booties home)!"

Well, my coat has been endorsed by none other than Michelle Obama! Is that not how the rest of the world is interpreting the color dress she chose for her husband's inauguration? Standing out there in the wind, she would have been so much more comfortable in my toasty coat. I would happily have bedazzled it for her. (Well, maybe grudgingly, but I would have done it.)

So, I kept the baby poop coat - well, Brooklyn Industries calls it the 'Snug' - and I wore it Thursday night, the night of teeny, tiny temperatures, and it was so very warm. In fact, I didn't even zip it up over my short sleeved dress!

'Tis the season for layering, and Old Navy is kind enough to help make it possible by offering these cute $10 tees that I can wear under a sweater, or show off when I get to work and it's really hot and I have to take the sweater off, ruining the perfectly coordinated outfit I spent 45 minutes planning. At least I will then have a cute tee on.
My friend Summer was wearing the yellow one this weekend, which naturally you should do if you are named Summer. I, however, prefer this lovely shade that Old Navy is telling me is called Cyclamen, which sounds like a birth control pill but is apparently also a flower. I particularly like the non-descript animal print -- are those polar bears? Cows? Rhinoceri? Which of those animals comes in Cyclamen?

So, I set out to find myself a more shapely down jacket, and ended up with this one from Brooklyn Industries - almost exactly the same one that Amanda bought last year - at half off. After the most recent snow storm, the length is really appealing to me. And now preschooler Josh and I will never again be confused for each other, although all sevens (or is it all sixes?) may have a hard time spotting me at LGA.
