My Outfit Monday: Working it in the Florida 'winter'

Keeping it warm and profesh while reporting at USF today. Although to be real, Steve took this photo outside the Tampa newsroom.

January

It only took us until the middle of January, but we did it, Tampa Bay:

We got fall weather.

I'd like to give a big shout-out to the sun, for moving a little farther away from us. And where would we be without clouds? Key assist.

But I digress. Getting dressed this morning was about being warm and cozy while keeping things professional for a day when I needed to be out in the field, reporting.

My dress and boots are both from Nordstrom Rack, where I found them a few weeks ago at half price. The Sam Edelman booties (similar to these) were still a little pricy, at $60. But for the quality and the fact that I've worn them 700 times already, these iconic ankle boots were a steal, originally priced at $150.

The dress is one of those things I prayed would fit the moment I saw it. (Sometimes 'love at first sight' is best experienced with clothes.) I adore the buttons, and the heavier fabric is perfect for this weather. It's by Anne Klein, and Rack still has a few left in select sizes.

But the real marquee item, for me, is the fleece-lined leggings. I feel like I'm cheating because I'm at work but I feel like I'm home on the couch in sweatpants. How did I get so far in life without wearing these? I picked them up at TJ Maxx back in September for a trip to Chicago - I think they were something stupid like $6.99 - and haven't looked back.

Not pictured: My hulking laptop bag, a J.Crew Factory men's department purchase. I'm also wearing tiny little orange-brown studs an old boyfriend's mom gave to me when she was cleaning out her jewelry drawer a few years ago. And don't miss my hair elastic, left wrist. #vogue
