Almost a week ago, San Francisco dropped 20 degrees (from low 60s to low 40s (sometimes high 30s)) and Bay Area natives are suddenly and painfully trying to adjust to how most Americans feel during only their mild winter months. The cold is biting and especially bothersome when trying to sleep since the heater in our building was only turned on last night after I'd badgered my property manager about it for three consecutive days. This temperature, however, is still a step up from my winter nights in college when I would go to bed in full snowboarding gear because my then-roommates were too frugal to use the heater.
I guess moving on to outfit things... if you're wondering how I managed a mini skirt and see-through shirt amidst our nonexistent climate crisis, the answer is, this photo was taken a couple of weeks ago when late afternoon temperatures still averaged 70 degrees. I'd been kind of interested in a new bomber for some time as the one I had was always too small for me and fit like a sausage casing in which the filling could not be contained. This is not to say I consider myself fat, but I actually did rip a hole in the lining of my armpit.
I found the one pictured above at Zara for an incredibly reasonable price of $120. Below are details of the rest of the outfit:
1. Bomber jacket, Zara
2. Striped shirt, Need Supply Co.
3. Flared plaid skirt, Zara
4. 'Brighton' heeled mules, Jeffrey Campbell
