Well, that’s life

There’s good news and bad news. The good news? I found a place to live! Come March 1, I’ll be settled into a cute albeit teeny apartment in Cambridge with a new roommate. And…the closet space is good. Really good! The bad news? When I move, there’ll probably still be mountains of snow on the ground. Stupid northeastern winters. As if it isn’t enough that I have to go to work in this gross, freezing weather, los gatos malos have taken to laying on my bed and staring at me as I bundle up to leave. Pretty sure Chloe Cat sticks her tongue out at me and laughs. Jerk. I may or may not have thrown a snowball at her on Wednesday. She deserved it.

I wore this outfit last week and I’m wearing a variation on it today. I’ve decided it’s my presentation outfit. As in, it’s warm and comfortable but polished enough to make a presentation to a crowd. Hopefully you recognize the skirt from the latest clothing swap I attended. I debated in hemming it above the knee, but the longer length works really nicely with boots. I…don’t really have an explanation for the expression on my face.

    The good news is you’re really cute in this outfit. Not that you’re not always cute. And you have an apartment – yay! Things are looking up – well aside from the snow.

    Oh you crack me up, Najeema. “She deserved it.” Hahaha. You look adorable. I love that blue to break up the gray.

    Love the outfit, Naj. I like the skirt and boots combo. I also love the new header; lovely art.

    I really like the length of the skirt actually. Of all the times I’ve moved in my life and there have been many, I’ve been lucky enough that I’ve never had to move in snow. Good luck that’s gonna be icky.
