Dreaming of Sunshine

by Jen on Monday, January 9, 2012

It's been raining pretty much non stop for probably 10 days now. January always seems like the dog days of winter to me: the joy of Christmas has past and it's been cold for a while, but that first taste of spring still seems impossibly far from arriving. Here are some photos from several months ago that never made it on to the blog, hopefully to help serve as a reminder for those of us in colder climates that the warmer season is just a few, hopefully short, months away.

1. YesStyle blouse (c/o), YSL ring, Stuart Weitzman booties (c/o)
2. Zara sweater, H&M skirt and clutch, Forever 21 necklace
3. Zara trench, shoes and scarf (old), Topshop blouse and trousers
photos: David Howe (1), Judith Wong (2), Paul Milaire & Roderick Fung (3)


love love the pendant and the flowerish skirt!

These pictures are beautiful, especially that second last one. And yes, I can totally relate to what you're saying. All the rain leaves me so uninspired and feeling "bleh".

Oh and the green Zara trousers you were talking about in your comment on my post: I think we might have the same pair. It's just hanging in my closet because it's just so baggy in the front. Such a shame!

The photo before the last one could have come straight out of some fancy editorial! I love it! x

Love the third outfit and the photo of you walking down the steps. It looks like you stepped out of The Secret Garden :)

Beautiful photos as always, Jen! It's been a very overcast January so far, which is pretty disappointing after all that winter sunshine. Just a couple more months!

10 Days of rain sounds miserable! I hope the skies clear up soon!

Totally loving your trench and mustard trousers!!

I don't even mind being in a colder climate, usually, except that winter has lost a bit of it's charm this season since it hasn't been snowing like usual...the photograph of your heels with all the sneakers and flip flops is really cute (: Have a good week!

That outfit with the H&M clutch and skirt is beyond beautiful! Love the mix of textures and prints. I am seriously feeling the winter blues as of late, it has been SO gloomy out! All lovely pics, hope I get to see your beautiful face soon!

That first photo is my favourite! It's always your slightly off camera ones that are so interesting. Yes, I cannot wait for better weather (and photo taking light).

The photos are great! I love that skirt and the coat :D:X I have told you that before. The weather seems weird here too..sunny but not warm and not an inch of snow..

Great photos.
Love the ring and the hair bun.

I absolutely adore your H&M skirt and I loved it even more in one of your previous posts where you wore it with a short Zara jacket. I have a dress very similar to your skirt and I'm planning to do a post with it....Thanks for being the inspiration....will inform you once I do the post!!

I love this outfit! It seems like my favorite piece of clothing on various blogs is always from Zara. I wish there was a store in Portland! Lovely photos too. :)

by kori on January 16, 2012 at 6:32 PM. #

I'm in love with both outfits! I really need to find more skirts like that!
