February is Better

February has proven to be a little easier than January was. I’m escaping the cold this week to shoot a wedding in Puerto Rico, and I’m going early, partially because flights were cheaper on Wednesday than Friday, but also, I want to take a few days and bask in the ability to stand outside without the air hurting my face.

Old Navy had these super cute, fitted sweatpants that I bought a few pairs of, and putting them on instead of staying in my PJs all day if I’m working from home makes a HUGE difference. Instead of slobby, I feel comfy, dressed, and put-together if someone comes to the door. I got rid of my too-small boots that worked last year because I only wore them a few times, and bought a comically gigantic pair of mens snow boots. They fit, but are the exact opposite of sexy. I can go charging through slush and murk in them like it ain’t no thang, though, and between them and my coat, walking miles in below freezing weather is no problem, so they’re making me happy. (I now look like a penguin with enormous stompy feet.)

In other words: I’m managing.

How you guys doing? Any better than January?

    The other day I put on a pair of flats and just wore them a few minutes while getting dressed to remind myself that not all shoes make me look like a mountain man!

    For the first time, literally ever, I am excited and motivated and we’re already over 1/4 through February!
    I hate February usually, but this year, there are actually enough things happening that I’m moving through it, rather than waiting for it to end. I’ve finished a knitting project already, I got a new babysitting gig, the Olympics are on, and I’ve had a first-and-second-interview for a new job!! (shhhh)
    It’s still cold as hell, but … I feel like I am finally just shutting up and accepting that.

    You always have the best clothing recs! I bought my fantastic Old Navy flannel pj bottoms after you posted about them here and just added the sweats to my cart. Thank you!
