Warming Up, Help Wanted

Please don’t rescind my feminist card, but I am too scared to light the pilot light on our gas fireplace by myself. I am waiting for my husband to do it for me. Help me please; I find gas terrifying. (Seriously. I don’t even like to think about it too much.)

It’s time, though. Things are getting nice and cold here. I’m wearing mukluks at this very moment.

In fact, I bought a new winter coat today chez Target, but I am only 80% sure about it. It’s kind of an asymmetrical wrap type coat. It does button all the way down, but seems to require the belt in order not to be too shapeless.


CW says it “reads” Alabama (as in too houndstoothy, as in I will look like a ‘Bama fan, which would be undesirableĀ here in Auburn) and also that looks like a sweater.

I don’t know. I like it, but I don’t love it. But it was only $40, and I don’t particularly feel like looking for another coat. But maybe I should. This wasn’t exactly what I had in mind (I was thinking of something more classic/dressy in black or charcoal, but all the good ones are so pricey). Opinions?

Or, better yet, do you have a suggestion on where to look for reasonably priced wool coats in a thigh/knee length?
