"A little place called Apsen"
Sorry for the lack of outfit posting. I have been completely overwhelmed by the holidays this year. I committed to a cookie exchange that was not for the meek of heart. 10 dozen cookies! All in one night. And I chose the hardest recipe there is: sugar cookies with royal icing. From scratch. I can't look at a cookie sheet without feeling nauseous. Now that I have survived the tough stuff, I am ready for the tundra that is Western PA. Yes, these Crocs Fuzz Booties are as warm as they look and comfy too! However, they do require a look with some panache. So I paired them with this 70s style poncho and leggings. I didn't want to overwhelm their already attention-getting presence. Is anyone else thinking of the ski lodge scenes from Dumb and Dumber? Queue movie quote:
Lloyd: What the hell are we doing here, Harry? We gotta get out of this town!
Harry: Oh yeah, and go where? Where are we gonna go?
Lloyd: I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.
Harry: Oh, I don't know, Lloyd. The French are assholes.
