Everything in twos

This is less of an outfit and more of what it looks like when trying to have a cute outfit on in Ohio. I've never been a coat collector as it always seemed foolish to own a million coats when a lot of the population can't afford one and let's be honest, I don't have the space for excess items. I've always been a thrift/swap/second hand kind of coat wearer, but this year, I was extremely cold. So, I headed to the mall and found the exact coat I saw online for a fraction of the cost and with bigger pockets -- which as a non-purse carrier is vital. I irrationally bought it and to get my money's worth, I plan to wear it every single day. Even when I'm sleeping.

I wore this outfit to a local show where local bands were doing covers of mainstream bands for charity. It was one of the most fun events I've been to. Each band had a genre and they all pretty much nailed it. I got to hear Chumbawamba, Weezer, Michael Jackson, Brand New, New Found Glory, Rage Against the Machine and a bunch of other gems. The venue was packed and everyone was screaming the words and dancing. It was basically a huge party and what's better than a good party? Plus we ended the night in pizza. All nights with pizza are good nights.

Oh, and I'm not mad. I'm just cold.
