AJ Wears :: Pleats and Boots

Today was the blog that almost wasn't. I went to my car after work to take photos, only to discover I didn't have an SD card. So I fought traffic, rushing home to beat the dark and catch a couple of photos. It was so dark I had to make sure I didn't move too much since the shutter was open longer than usual, and so cold that I couldn't stand to stay out long enough to mess with the camera.

So I may be a bit of a blur, and I couldn't feel my fingers by the time I ran back inside, but I DID IT.

AJ Wears :: Over the knee boots

I read an article last week teased "the easy way to wear a skirt when it's freezing outside!" The answer? Over the knee boots. They forgot to mention leggings or fleece tights make it ACTUALLY warm enough to wear a skirt in freezing temps, but it did give me the want to wear my slinky black boots with a skirt today.

AJ Wears :: A Silver Sweater

Current status: Counting down the minutes until it's socially appropriate to eat a sandwich. I'm blogging to distract myself. Although, I ate the first half of this sandwich yesterday at 3:30 pm for a snack, so I'm not sure why I care about social norms right now. There's a cookie and some chips in my future too. Lunch so hard. Anyway, here's what I'm going to be wearing while I eat this sandwich:

Sweater, H&M (similar from XXI).
Skirt, Alice + Olivia (similar on sale at NM, similar from Tahari).
Socks, Hue (exact).
Flats, Zara (AWESOME similar from Mango I might order as back ups).
Necklace, BaubleBar (exact).
Bag, Kate Spade (exact).
