Sick of skinnies and boots yet? Me too. And since Spring is promising to bring destroyed denim in a big, big way, I find myself wanting to bust them out now. (In 30 degree weather yesIknow.)
Since I routinely wear my fleece-lined Plush tights under jeans when it's really, really cold….why not let 'em show?

It works, right?
And since I tend to obsess over new styling tricks….I wore a version of this outfit literally all weekend. Including date night:
And Mamas? This is the jacket that I told you about on Friday. The little faux-fur number that I've been hunting for since NYFW. [cringe] It was only $38??? Gah! I know what you are thinking!! I do! And fine. You are right. So let me just say it: BAAA BAAAA
Happy now? Good. Anyway, I kinda…love…it? It's a new thing for me, feeling glamorous and warm (whilewearingMike'ssweater). I hate (hate! HATE!) being cold, so in the winter, my bar typically tops out at "cute". It's the best I can do. I blame my addiction to wool turtlenecks, Mamas. Sexy seems so out of reach when all that wool is involved. But this faux-fur number….I was actually able to rock – gasp – a v-neck sweater and still be warm. So don't judge me too harshly, Mamas. Just do me one small favor: if you do hit purchase, just say: BAAAAAA
