What I am Wearing Today

I feel a little cranky today, and can't think of anything exciting to talk about, so I just decided to post what I am wearing. Nothing too flashy or different, just some old stand-by items that were laying around within reach this morning. I was so cold that I snuggled on the couch with my puppy for almost an hour in my giant fleece robe watching the Today show. Then I had a strange breakfast of re-heated left-over cottage pie from last night, and headed off to work. I love the holiday season but feel as though this year is tempered by the disappointment I feel about not having found a house yet. When we started looking in June, I thought for sure that I would be decorating our first home for the holidays and that my family would fly in and spend Christmas in our house and a new tradition would be born- and I could have a beautiful tree, and stockings hung on a mantle dressed with garland and candles- a crackling fire going while we all stayed up late Christmas eve playing board games and watching Christmas movies. In the morning I would make breakfast- dutch pancakes filled with berries and cream and eggs and bacon and toast -- my favorite part of any breakfast!--and maybe we would all have matching pajamas, and exchange gifts near the tree. Then we would all start getting ready to host Christmas dinner!
.....or something like that... I mean, I haven't really thought about it much.....

Thanks! I love them, and wear them all the time. I really wanted the J. Crew boots last year, but they sold out before I could find them in a stor to try them on. These are really similar- maybe even a little cuter and I got them for a steal-half off. They are Anne Klein and the style name is Tate. They are on sale on Zappos.com at the moment and also found them on Barrieplace.com, but i am not familiar with that retailer.
