Bits and Pieces

Head to Toe: Flannel, Pac Sun; Jean Jacket, Forever 21; Black Jacket, Old Navy; Leggings, Charlotte Russe; Boots, Hunter

I had to settle for porch pics today considering it is monsoon-ing outside. If only I had my super-cute brown plaid umbrella to style with this outfit, I wouldn't need shelter. Unfortunately, it has gone to the home for lost umbrellas along with the other three I have recently "misplaced" (a.k.a. left on the train, on the train platform or otherwise mysteriously disappeared). Now I am left with a super not-cute $3 drugstore umbrella that I bought in a pinch because, why bother? Anyway, I am so tired of my puffers and pea-coats that I decided to layer spring jackets instead. This one, thankfully has a hood so I will be mildly protected in the probable event that I cannot find my umbrella.

In other news, Sunday was one of my favorite days of the year, the New Haven St. Patrick's Day parade. I love being in the city of my Alma Mater, and when else is it socially acceptable to spike your coffee with Bailey's at 10 a.m.? It was a great day catching up with friends and having a few too many car bombs.
 My Irish guy, could you tell?

  5. This was the first year in 6 that I wasn't living in New Haven for the parade - this makes me so nostalgic.
