That’s roughly 2769641982 times per day. Needless to say I am a fan. poorgirlrichtaste 1-7-16 (9)poorgirlrichtaste 1-7-16 (17)poorgirlrichtaste 1-7-16 (3)This sweater is one of those extraordinary pieces that pairs well with just about everything. I love the cozy, boho feel that it adds to any outfit. Easy-peasy lemon squeezy.

Please try to contain your fear.poorgirlrichtaste1-4-16 1poorgirlrichtaste1-4-16 1 (4)Not sure if it’s the ferocious zippers, the super cool knee-pad-ish details, or that particular shade of army green that makes them badass, but these pants are legit. poorgirlrichtaste1-4-16 1 (7)poorgirlrichtaste1-4-16 1 (8)However, the biggest testament to their badass-ness came when my husband first saw them and said, “you look like you’re about to kick some ass.”

Tights on tights

Thank goodness for underwear.P1200026poorgirlrichtaste1-3frontLong underwear— jeeeeeez let me finish. P1190982poorgirlrichtaste1-3 behindThough I suppose regular underwear is pretty great too. Sort of necessary and all that jazz.P1200054P1200055Believe it or not I have somehow managed to squeeze a pair of long underwear underneath my tights. Trust me- if there is a way to increase warmth even marginally whilst wearing a skirt in January, I will find it.

P.S. I was still really freaking cold though.P1200030

I’m not sure if it was the bitingly cold weather today or just me but I was feeling quite awkward posing for pictures…though I can’t imagine why because normal people totally go to baseball fields in winter and take pictures of themselves. So, I ended up with a lot of “ummmm I’ll just bumble-around-gracelessly type pictures. Exhibit A:P1200043 Exhibit B:poorgirlrichtastegoofy.JPGNiiiiccceee.

P1190726P1190751P1190742A few pictures taken this morning in one of my favorite spots along the Connecticut River. It’s a short walk from my house and has some really incredible views.P1190731P1190794P1190784The shore has these giant masses of rock that jut out into the water and when you stand at the edge you feel like you’re just floating right there in the middle of the river.P1190771P1190781Of course I love this spot best on sunny days, but I am liking the mysterious, dreamy feeling that the fog gives it.
