I'm sitting in front of my fan as I type this, trying to cool down after a day out in the sun - and I feel distinctly silly because I'm preparing a post featuring a wool sweater and leather leggings. Welcome to life in Vancouver. This past weekend, after a beautiful day spent wandering English Bay and Stanley Park under the summer sun, I woke up to discover that the rain clouds that perpetually hang over the city I call home had descended again. Temperatures were so wintery that, knowing I would be spending most of my day outside, I finished my outfit with my midcalf leather boots. And I did not regret it for one second. So just for today, I'm pretending I'm in Australia, where an outfit like this would make perfect sense at this time of year.
