Boots with the Fur

Casual Clothes · Casual Friday

I’m not really sure how it happened, but I’d made it until my late 20s before I had to buy snow boots. I mean, sure, I had them as a kid and I  had an emergency pair for shoveling or playing in the snow, but an actual pair that didn’t look like they came out of a bad 1990s film about ski school? Nope.

So several years ago I asked for and got the now-ubiquitous Sorel Joan of Arctic boots. And not to go totally hipster on you, but I definitely had these before it was cool.

Anyway, when I worked in a more traditionally corporate environment I would wear these to trudge to and from the train in the snow and then change into heels or flats when I got to the office. Now, though, it’s totally fine to wear them all day. So, I do. And here’s how:

What to wear to Green Street Meats

Casual Clothes

Last week Jason randomly said, “Let’s go out for dinner!” Never mind that it was one of the coldest nights of the year. When Jason suggests leaving the house of his own accord I’m not going to argue (my husband is a bit of a homebody).

So, we bundled up and walked up the street to try Green Street Meats. I’d been told by several people that we should try it so off we went.

FYI – If you want to fit in at Green Street Meats, wear plaid.

plaid-shirt-snow-boots-2Necklace made out of a bullet casing is optional.

Beards and skinny jeans are also haute couture at Green Street. It’s definitely got a laid back hipster vibe to it. But dang good food! A little pricey but if you want no frills and just tasty meat then this is the place for it.

Or just go for a drink. They have a pretty awesome bar, too.

Anyway, today I’m on a plane to Florida so the snow boots are staying home. I’ll be back on Monday night, though, so they won’t be lonely for too long.

P.S. If you have suggestions of things to do in Tampa, I’m all ears!
