What better to do on gray, rainy day than blog, especially when I'm about 2 weeks behind in posts? Answer: bake bread and pumpkin doughnuts and do much needed laundry, which is what I've been doing most of today. And blog, when you have a perfect gray outfit to post.

Sometimes, I like to change my outfit many times a day just for fun (and because I'm indecisive). Usually, there's not time for that so I try to make my work outfit and after-work outfit without much change:
This could be lesson #236 in why I love my black skirt and jean shorts, and why they're closet necessities.
In other news, I am getting so into the holiday spirit (I'm a fan of anything that is an excuse to get excited, decorate and buy presents) and it finally snowed last night. (If it's going to be 20 degrees or less, I prefer white pretty cold).
I have a little (really short) story for you all: last year when I was waiting at rehearsal for my dance group, I was wrapped in a pashmina to be warm and cozy (necessary at late night rehearsals) and someone said, jealously, "you look so cozy, I'm going to bring a blanket tomorrow."
I had unintentionally realized the power of the pashmina-scarf-blanket-best-garmet-ever!
The scarf in these pictures is almost to thick to be a scarf and o-so warm and toasty. It's the most acceptable way to go to work in cold weather and feel like you put work clothes on and got back into bed instead of going to the office.
