Ok, ok…so after a couple of days of rain and downpour that I was thrilled to have, (we’re so spoiled here…I mean who honestly gets sick of sunshine?!?) I was getting antsy and ready to go back to my more-fun warmer weather outfit planning. This is mainly attributed to road rage. I mean good god people…it’s just water!! Fact: my roommate, a recruiter, mentioned that someone called to cancel their interview at Google because they were too scared to drive in the rain. Are you KIDDING me?!? I’d drive through fire, a war zone, or a course laced with banana peels and turtle shell bombs like in Mario Kart to get to an interview at Google. Ok, that’s a different fantasy, but you get my point. She and I both being from the Midwest had to swap “are you freaking kidding me faces” with each other over that one. What a tool.
To some extent though, I did live out that Mario Kart fantasy the last few days. I was zipping around in my 4-wheel drive like I freaking owned this state, just gradually getting less and less patient with traffic. But who am I kidding? I have road rage rain or shine! The 4 days of rain that graced the LA freeways was just the perfect amount for me, and I was ready for it to let up by Sunday when it started slowing. It was the perfect “cloudy coffee” weather, but not overly chilly or breezy. Behold, the boot socks! For a comfortable Sunday, I decided to steal my favorite shirt from my boyfriend’s closet again! Perfect for being super comfortable, as seen in my tomboy post a while back, only this time I decided to girl it up a little and pair it with a skirt, boots, knee socks, and low and behold – my weekend beanie. And this time around, the even MORE perfect rainy/cloudy day accessory is in my right hand! A grande Americano with steamed soymilk. Thank you, Starbucks, for keeping me warm while walking the trail back home! ;)
