Crushed

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.

As you may have noticed from Pinterest, I'm also OBSESSED with Hunters right now. One of my blogging buddies told me that the "Huntress" line are roomier in the calves! I better try some pairs on rather than order online, too, cause I have giant calves hahaha. <3! Good luck!
