Thanks for all of your comments. I loved checking out your blogs and getting new reading material : )
The past two weeks have been crazy as I have started back working (as a nanny) and my grad school classes started back. Plus, the Blackberry outage has compounded my unplugged-ness.
I have a little commute to work. This is an adjustment as I have always driven everywhere prior to moving to Chicago. (Sidenote: I did drive to Target/Whole Foods on my own the other day! Three cheers for being brave and driving in the city. I realize this is not a big deal for most people.)
I'm settling into my new routine and have decided I need to make the most of my commute time. Sometimes I read. But sometimes I just can't stop people watching. I have like a little running commentary going through my head during my time on the train. I'd like to start drafting blog posts during this time. I think that would be a better use of my time than scouting out people to be on What Not to Wear.
Speaking of what to wear, I've been searching for a perfect everyday coat. It's about to get seriously cold. I want something longer and down filled but all of the women's long coats are way too long on me. I tried on a girl's patagonia XL and it actually fit perfectly. Would you judge me if I bought a kids coat?
This is the one we're talking about:
OR there's this short women's coat:
And I decided I need this just to hang out in. How cozy does this look?!
What are your go-to commute activities/items? And thoughts on the coat situation?
