I’m Not Ready for Fall – J.Crew Style Collage

By Friday, September 28, 2012 0 Permalink

I’m not ready for fall weather, mostly because in Seattle fall equals rain and gray, but also because my closet lacks colorful cool-weather pieces. It’s all black. You know I love black, but once Seattle weather transitions from this long summer we’re having into the overcast gloom – I will match my surroundings. All black, olive and gray. Seattle summer, we had such a nice thing going on. I thought we’d last longer than this.

Dan suggested I do a collage of raincoats or football attire. As if I know what to wear to a football game. Not counting a high school football game, I’ve never been to a real one (to be honest I only went in high school to see if my crush liked me). But back to the collage – I guess this is my stubborn response – I don’t want to wear a raincoat just yet! I’m ok with knits and wool but I’m still looking for some life in my dull wardrobe. That’s what this collage is, a little color collaboration. And don’t you wish you had scarves in these prints?
