It’s absolutely freezing today for us Californians. There is a high wind advisory in effect ’til 11 pm tonight, and this morning, when I stood outside to do yard duty, I thought I might die in the windy weather. I checked my iPhone, and it said that with windchill, the temperature felt like 49 degrees, which, in my humble opinion, is FAR TOO COLD for me to be out supervising adolescents playing basketball.
The majority of my body was freezing, thanks to me wearing a long-sleeved wrap dress and tights, which are usually warm enough for my classroom.
But do you know what WAS warm? My feets. Because last night, I purchased these from Old Navy, which remind me of these little UGGs I just wrote about wanting. Except, these only cost me $34.50, and not $140. They fit my calves, they are comfy and warm and amazing. I may have to get them in other colors. Will I be mocked for wearing leg sweaters everyday? Probably. Do I care? Not so much.
You know, I used to mock people for wearing UGGs everywhere. But, now I know: if Old Navy knock offs are this warm and cozy, how much MORE awesome would real ones be? I can’t even imagine the glory.
Still, please do us all a favor and avoid the short-shorts or mini-skirt and UGGs combo.
*Shout out to Tabitha, who commented about the Old Navy version, and to Princess Nebraska, who brought them to my attention once again via G-chat. Also, to Lauren at Old Navy who HID THEM FOR ME so they weren’t accidentally put away from their hold, as they are selling out like whoa.
