We’ve been having the weirdest weather here in LA. Usually (I say usually like I’ve lived here my whole life and not just three years) by March the rain has stopped, but it just keeps on coming on! Sunday was a torrential downpour, it rained harder than I’ve ever seen. All. Day. Long.
But I forget that rain is a spring occurrence in the rest of North America, and not something relegated solely to winter. And it will keep things green here a little bit longer, before the summer turns the hills to a crisp.
This jacket is perfect for spring, and since we don’t have a long spring, I usually forget about it. I usually don’t get a chance to wear many of my jackets, which is sad because I love coats. I unpack them every year and usually wear a few of them once and pack them right back up a few months later.
Jacket – Express, ’07 (Every so often I find these things at Express that look nothing like the Express most of us know – college girl club clothes.)
Jeans – J Brand, via Anthropologie, ’09
Tank – H&M (no drawing, since you know what a wife beater looks like)
Shoes – Miz Mooz via Nordstroms, ’10 (so comfortable!)
Necklace with amethyst and gold beads – castoff from friend (who says every time she sees me wearing it she wonders how she could never pull it off.)
