While in Charlotte this past weekend I ventured into Madewell. I always go in there to browse the sale section. Sometimes I can find awesome deals. This time I didn't find anything amazing on sale but they sale Hunter rain boots. I have wanted a pair of Hunter boots all year and my parents were going to get me a pair for Christmas. I thought I should try them on to make sure of the size I needed. Well....I tried on a size 9 and while the foot was plenty roomy, the boots were extremely snug around my calf. I was wearing a pair of jeggings and if I had need to tuck in a thicker pair of pants or corduroys there is no way they would fit. I was really devastated. My friend, Maggie thought I was being a bit dramatic. Maybe I was. Hunter boots were my dream rain boots. Anybody have any suggestions for another style of fabulous rain boots? I would love suggestions.
Maybe my devastation would have lasted longer but I was still really excited over the new coat I had just purchased in Anthropologie. As soon as I saw it on the hanger I was in love. I put it on and felt like Mary Tyler Moore. The coat has a detachable hood. I love it. It was well worth the splurge. Although had I been shopping alone I never would have splurged on it. My shopping pal convinced me that I could afford to splurge on the coat. Here is the beauty.

I hope to start posting outfit photos again by the end of the week. I am having lots of sinus issues so my nose reminds me of Rudolph's. As soon as that subsides I want to post again. I miss blogging.
