WINTER WRAPPED FIRST DAY OF SPRING

Hat, Gap. Pearl Necklace, F21. Pocket Watch Necklace, Vintage (Grandma's jewelry). Silhouette cardigan, Kersh. Collared pinstripe shirt, Leggings, and Boots, Wet Seal.

The first day of Spring is full of flowers in bloom, light showers, dappled sunlight, and baby birds… right? Wrong. Santa Barbara had a rainstorm (flash flood warnings and all) in mind.  Without much of a real excuse all Winter to break out my cozy clothes, I saw this as an opportunity to wear a knit cap and playful cardigan.  Wearing (mildly im-)practical puddle jumping boots, a pinstriped oxford, leggings, and layered necklaces helped to distract from the drizzly chill in the air. I love how you can almost feel the crisp cold in these photographs.
