Today was another pretty lazy day. I took Keppie out to play in the snow and she loved it again...it's so darn cute to watch her jump around. We played fetch with a stick and she couldn't get enough. I finally had to take her inside because I was getting cold and she resisted the whole way back to the door.
I actually didn't end up getting dressed until the early evening because we finally got to leave the apartment. We went and did a bunch of errands because the roads have now been sufficiently plowed enough for people to be going out safely. Unfortunately, the most most important errand we had to do was unsuccessful. We need to get Keppie "paw protector boots" since the salt that is used for the roads and sidewalks is really bad for the pads on her paws. We didn't plan too well in advance and they were out of her size and since we got so much snow, the truck with a new shipment was delayed. Oh well, I'll go back on Thursday and try again...sorry Keps!
I didn't realize until I was going through all of these photos that the forest green of the turtleneck doesn't really stand out from the black skirt and black pinstripe vest. This vest has shown me that some of the best items in my closet can be thrifted. I got this vest almost 2 years ago and it is one of the most often worn items in my closet. It was super cheap and has held up amazingly! I have plans next week to spend a day thrifting and I can't wait:) I jazzed this dark outfit up a bit with my gold chainmail necklace and finished it with my black fringy moccasins.
