I don’t know about y’all, but if I wake up in the morning to a dark and damp outside it’s much harder for me to get dressed up beyond my boots – jeans – tee- pea coat uniform. But seeing how these ladies below worked it out in dank weather, it really encourages me to do the same. As Tim Gunn says, “If you want to dress to feel as though you never got out of bed, then don’t get out of bed.” Here’s to jumping out of bed and into that hot outfit you were saving for something. Today’s the day. =)

Great rain outfit.

I’m sorry, I know I’ve been MIA.  School’s been… exceptionally challenging the past two weeks.  But!  My big project of the semester is pretty much done!  I took three 5th grade classes to the National Museum of American History where I taught them about technology and war.  Then, as a review I had them play a trivia game against their teacher.  I called it: Ms. —–,  Are You Smarter Than Your 5th Graders?  Fun stuff!

Aside from school, I’ve also started a new job!  Since I couldn’t intern both at the Air and Space Museum AND The Phillips Collection, I decided I still wanted the best of both worlds.  Soooo….. I’m interning at Air and Space next semester (SO EXCITED!) and I work part-time at The Phillips now.

Okay, so remember a few posts back, I was griping about what kind of coat to get for winter?

It seems that Someone up there had enough of my endless confusion and decided to help me out.  Yesterday, at work, I was assigned to work the Coat Check Room.  …What better way to check out what kinds of coats people wear than to literally check a bunch of coats in all day!  Haha… and here you thought my job was exciting.

No, but really, it came in handy.

Although it was none of my business, I couldn’t help but peek at the labels of the coats I’d be handling.  Of course, with The Phillips having a clientele base that’s a little more on the posh side, I saw a lot of designer names, so I won’t even bother with that.

Still a little on the high end side for me, but really pretty, were a few J.Crew coats like this one:

Also, I was really skeptical about down jackets being cute, but I saw a few that were totally doable:

And one red coat surprised me, because with all the spiffy names flying around me on these coats, I expected it to be on the pricey side.  But check it out:

From Old Navy!

So… just a few more paychecks and hopefully my next coat-related post would be about an actual purchase!

Til then!  Happy Thanksgiving Week!
