Blanket-wrapped and drifting...

1-P2900365 I think I stumbled across this excellent skirt at a thrift store back home somewhere. It's Eddie Bauer, which is kind of horrifying because my only other experience with them is a brief obsession with Ford F-Series Eddie Bauer Limited Edition pick-up trucks in high school, and here I am in a garment of the same name. But it's plaid and wool and very New England, and  - news flash - it's winter here. Brr. Snow tomorrow? We'll see.

As it happens, the weatherman just said by Wednesday temps will spike up to the high 50s, and the tomboy trilled that she will be wearing shorts to work, "thank you very much." What a sicko, especially considering we've currently got a fire roaring and I'm wearing thick Uniqlo leggings and an Everlane cashmere sweater on the couch on an extra lazy Saturday.

I love the skirt's buckle and fringe, like a blanket! I craved sparkle this day (I think I'd spent like three days straight in proper riding/barn clothes, and by god I just wanted to feel girly and fancy), so on went the Marc by Marc Jacobs bow necklace. I must have really been wanting some femme time because right after these were taken I popped into Acoté on Newbury St. and saw Eva for a saucy new bang trim, which I love.


I paired it with a little red sweater the tomboy picked up for me at Urban Outfitters last year (it was kind of an emergency), some tights, and a pair of Wythe NY Reese riding boots, which I believe are a Gilt-specific brand. They are insanely comfortable, the leather is supple and lovely, and so far I'm very pleased. You'd think I have enough riding boots, but aside from a brown/black combo and my lovely oxblood pair, the only other tall boots I have are brown and high-heeled, or over-the-knee in black. Some might argue I also require a plain brown pair, alas...

Oh! Tugging along this textured Dooney & Bourke bag was an easy choice.


I know it's been awhile since my last post - busy weeks with clients and horses will sap a gal of all her spare energy, especially when she's recovering from a cold - and in that one I also mentioned a movie, but ZOMG THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE.

We went last night after I rallied from a migraine (November is clearly not my month for malaise) and it was just so good. We may or may not be popping out tomorrow to see it again. LIKE IT'S REALLY GOOD DON'T JUDGE US OKAY!? There is a lot of cuteness happening over at the Autostraddle Happy Hunger Games: Open Thread Forever, so you should go there if you, too, are totally geeking out about it. I'm just saying, I might dress up next time.

No spoilers, but my two new faves are Joanna (duh) and Beetee.

My camera's on its last leg, you guys! What am I going to do?!?!
