AJ Wears :: An Anorak

Rainy days and Mondays, right? I've always found that I'm in good spirit about rain if I'm A) sleeping in or B) wearing something bright and fun. Sure, this jacket came in more wearable colors like khaki and red and navy, but something about the fun yellow makes braving the wet streets just a little bit better.

Also a parking meter photo bombed half of my photos today, but look, the leaves are turning. I love a little color. PS - check out my rainy day collection on Pose if you need a little inspiration for any crap weather you may encounter.

AJ Wears :: A bright red blazer

Today's story is short and sweet. It's cold, and rainy, and it makes me want to do nothing but roll around in bed and eat chocolate. I still have to get out and interact with the general public, though, so I threw on my trusty wellies and hit the streets (ie target mall etc etc).

And everywhere I went, people complimented my outfit or my boots. And every time, I would say, "Thank you! It's the only way I can get dressed on days like these - if I wear something bright and fun!"

And that's the truth. Then my jacket split down the back and I moped the rest of the day. I didn't even want to take pictures I was so distraught - but I did some in the backyard anyway (so no one would see the giant hole in my jacket). The end!

AJ Wears :: An Anorak

Rainy day rule #1 - if you look good, you will feel good. I often tell people the only thing that gets me out of bed on a rainy day is something fun and bright. So when I found this retina-searing anorak at The Limited, I had to have it. Sure, it came in much more practical colors like khaki and navy, but what's so fun about that?

Since it only rained this morning, I ditched the Hunters for some sassy black booties. We did some shopping at the Promenade and then I ate a burger with macaroni and cheese on top of it from The House. Man. Life is good.

Good news if you want a little anorak for yourself - they're currently on sale at The Limited! It was actually cheaper in store - so you might want to check there first.
