From sunny 70s everyday and now back to good old Chicago winters, LA was real. Of course these photos were taken the one day it rained when I was there (and maybe one of five days it rains all year) but it fit that whole black / white / grey motif my outfit was going for anyway…and happened to match this fantastic street art. So here’s a day in DTLA (or Downtown LA, if you’re not familiar).
Lace on lace. Sweatshirt and sweatpants. Let’s just say I’m one happy girl.
Once it starts snowing and you have to leave the house (and not just to run errands…like you’re actually going to see people, on purpose) you have that oh shit! moment. What on earth are you supposed to wear? Well, this is a start…
There’s something about a cape that just makes you feel extra cool — maybe it’s the superhero reference, perhaps because it’s extra fun to twirl / run / do anything to make your cape get some extra volume. Regardless of why, capes are just super in their own way. Something that cannot be explained. Only experienced. Just see for yourself.
If you look at my personal style posts from a year or so ago, it’s very clear that I used to be all about color. I still love it, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes it’s hard to wear color in fall/winter, as finding warm clothing in brights is no simple task. I used to get frustrated with this but now I just embrace it…as I start to not wear as much color and shift into neutrals (it’s really not that bad!)
