But Not a Real Green Dress, That’s Cruel

Well folks…it’s the big debut! I raved about this dress in my February budget post, and now you can probably see why I love it. It’s totally comfortable, fits me like a glove, and has a perfectly classy but fun shape. The pictures don’t even do it justice – it’s a nice sturdy ponte-ish material so I’m optimistic that it will last me many wears. And it better, because I already have at least 2 spring outfits planned in my head. How great will this color look with leopard print, right? OH! And pockets! Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?! Do I put anything in the pockets? Of course not. But I like knowing they’re there.

The dress also comes in cobalt blue and in gray/black colorblock. It probably wouldn’t hurt to keep my eye on the clearance rack later in the season. Just in case.

Surprisingly, Madewell did not pay me to write this post. But they probably should. I accept wire transfers, Madewell. Call me.

I’m guessing most people who got dressed up last weekend did so for a date on Valentine’s Day. Meh. Not my style. Friday nights are for vegging out and watching Netflix, and that is exactly what I did.

BUT I did put on a new dress on Saturday night, went to see my Valentine-for-Life perform in a cabaret, and hung out with big group of my ridiculous friends where I laughed so hard I nearly peed in said new dress (don’t worry…I didn’t). Not to get all mushy, but I don’t see the point in celebrating Valentine’s Day when I have so many fabulous people around me every day of the year. I do, however, see the point in getting chocolate for Valentine’s Day because chocolate is never not a good idea.

These boots are my new lifesaver. Or legsaver I guess. I’ve been wearing jeans A LOT recently just because it’s so cold that I can’t bear to expose my legs (even with tights) to the elements. But at a certain point I just get tired of jeans. And by “I get tired of jeans,” I mean “all my jeans are in the ginormous pile of laundry in the corner of my bedroom.” Then I realized that my over-the-knee boots give me an extra 4 inches or so of coverage compared to regular old knee-high boots. It makes a big difference, lemme tell you. Plus I wear tall socks for an extra layer. So that leaves just a couple inches of thigh out in the cold. I’m not a doctor but I’m thinking [even my] thighs have more insulation than the lower half of the leg…amiright, ladies?
