This is not the outfit I wore today (to work). It's the outfit I wish I wore.
I did wear most of this outfit to work today. But rather than my vintage cowboy boots, I wisely wore my black wellington-type boots (you know, the ones that every woman in NYC seems to have), as it was snowing this thick, heavy, soppy, wet snow. It would immediately turn into wetness and there were large unfortunate puddles of ick all over Manhattan sidewalks. I never thought of myself as a galoshes kinda gal, but it was liberating to run through puddles, with only the cold, not the water, seeping in.
When I thought of this outfit, I mentally paired it with these boots, which I love but my cohabitator merely tolerate. They were my birthday thrift find and I wore them all the time last summer. I pretended I was an urban cowgirl while stomping around, and folks from all different walks of city life have given my compliments. I've also used them to kill 2 really aggressive waterbugs (also know as NYC summer cockroaches).
I didn't wear the hat. I just found it in the the box by my desk where I stick everything when I'm too lazy to put it away. I don't know how my fella puts up with my clutter sometimes.
