Back To The Grind...

Thanksgiving Weekend is over and my trip was wonderful.  Even the flying part was tollarable.  The weekend was busy and my my flight was later getting back in than originally planned but I am so glad that I went.

I hope that you had a great holiday weekend as well?

Anyway, I had planned this huge post detailing what I had packed for my trip but, alas, the opportunity just didn't present itself.  Ugh!  Does anyone else ever have a post idea in their head that just never materializes?  Frustrating... at least for me. Given that it is Monday and the entire trip is over, I figured that it is best to just move on.  Oh well.

I don't really know why I titled this post that way, I truly love my job, perhaps a little too much.  Hee Hee
With that said, Monday is the start of a new work week and although I cannot say I actually look forward to it, I do not dread it at all.  Returning to work after a long weekend is especially fun for me.  It is good to see most everyone again, catch up on their lives, just re-engage.  But it is Monday AND it is quite chilly today... at least for this part of the country... so I went with a nice cozy sweater and some tall boots.  Yummy.

Here is what I am wearing today...

Both the sweater and the skirt are from Harold's but I don't know for sure if I bought them at the same time.  I have had them both for some time.  I have said it before but I REALLY miss Harold's.  Such classic stuff.

This sweater is SO SOFT and SO WARM.  I love to pair it with so many things in my closet at this time of the year.  You will definitely see it again.  Some say that whites and beige are boring tones, I say that they are versatile and classic.  

 LOVE this skirt.  I think it is so sharp.  What do you think?

Simple combination but I think these two pieces were born to go together.  Speaking of Born...

If you have read my blog for a little while you last saw these boots here.  Hint... you will probably see them again.  Hee Hee

These are one of my favorite pairs of boots.  This particular pair is by Born.  If you have never owned a pair of Born boots, get some.  Comfortable and sharp.  Killer combination.
I am not sure that it is possible to have too many good pairs of tall boots.  I wear them 8-9 months a year.  The summer months are just too hot but come that first little cool spell I will break them out regularly all the way through Memorial Day.  How much of the year do your taller boots get to see the street?

With that my lunch hour is rapidly drawing to a close.  Have a great day!
