Today was a good day, until I backed into another car and jacked up my bumper. I'm not allowed to have nice things... Ever.

I was crazy busy at work today and ran around so much that I skipped the gym to go shopping. Don't think that it was a bad thing. I went to Arundel Mills, which one circuit around the mall is a mile, not counting all the additional walking in the actual stores. I think I probably got at least two miles tonight.

My goal was to find either a cute short boot to wear with jeans, or a nice winter coat. I tried on boots, but nothing said "buy me". One pair was tempting.. Black quarter calf lace up with a small heel, but the size wasnt quite right.  I will know when I find the right pair.

I tried on jackets, too. Hey coat makers, can you please please please make plus size coats in tall? I would much appreciate something that can cover my wrists and my ass.

I actually lucked up and found a gorgeous charcoal gray wool pea coat from Anne Klein for $70 at Burlington. I tried it on... And it was surprisingly long enough and didn't make me look like the side of a barn. And I walked away. Got to the car in the parking lot, and turned around and went back to get it. Better to buy and return,  than regret when it's gone tomorrow.

The ELB approved. So I guess it's mine. I really needed a professional and warm winter jacket. And I think this one will keep me happy for this winter at least. Besides, I get cold now. My little Columbia fleece jacket is great, but it's not have enough for everyday wear. And my Columbia winter jacket is great, but it's a men's size 4x, and I bought it over 10 years ago. So I can totally justify this new jacket. ;) I felt kind of cute in it.

  1. It's very cute, and $70 for a good coat is a good price. $70 vs. being cold/getting sick/missing work/etc.
