It has been straight-up cold the past few mornings here in Burlington, and the chilly temps have me scrambling to pull together my fall/early winter wardrobe. We moved this summer, and in the chaos of storing and moving different things, I put away a lot of my warmer jackets, sweaters, and scarves somewhere, and I'm still trying to figure out exactly where that somewhere is. The basement? Under the bed? My dad's garage? I know that they're safe and sound in a plastic bin somewhere, but I really need to figure out where that somewhere is, fast.
So while I'm having a hard time tracking down the cold weather clothing I already own, I have no problem filling their void with a few new options. I snagged a new H&M parka online and stocked up on Carhartt beanies in the men's section of Sierra Trading post, and now I'm feeling a sudden urge to buy a pair of Uggs.
I didn't have the funds to buy a pair the first time they were cool (hi, 2005), but their latest attempt at It Girl branding has me ready to spring for a pair this time around. Alexa Chung recently art directed Ugg's new fall campaign, and she recruited some of her fabulous friends to wear the brand's iconic furry boots in it. The Vermonter in me is saying, yes, they're practical and warm! and the shopper in me is like, they're cool, you need them. So I guess that means I'm buying a pair - I'm thinking of something water repellent, black, and just a little basic.
