JACKET: c/o Trixy Cat Vintage
SCARF: c/o Afternoon Owl Designs
I'm trying my best to live in the moment and all that but, godamnit, I am so over winter. When we went out for Moscow Mules on Friday night the streets were so deserted and empty that it made me think that a) it could have POSSIBLY been a Wednesday at that moment and I just got my calendar all confused or b) a zombie apocalypse has happened and we were just about to find out. Only the brave and thirsty braved the heaps of snow that night and, standing there, on the semi-empty dance floor with my snowy boots making a puddle around me, I decided I was done.
Gone is the appeal of grandpa sweaters and pumpkin spice. Instead now all I can do is wait- with some anxiety- for May to make its way over here. I can't wait for walks in the warm summer rain. I can't wait to be outdoorsy in the way that patio drinkers are. I can't wait to buy tulips for my mom. I can't wait to have bare shoulders (what does sunshine on skin feel like, anyway?), I can't wait for watermelon on the beach, and wine in McDonald jumbo cups on the sand. It's enough to make me curl up in a duvet cocoon and just hibernate til it's time.
But since the duvet thing isn't really an option, I guess I'll just try to make it up to myself with fun winter clothes in the meantime. Enter this southwest jean jacket from Trixy Cat Vintage! The second I saw it I knew it had a home in my closet. I love that the length of it hits at your thigh so it's perfect for layering on top of shorts and mini dresses, and I really like the relaxed, old-school vibe it gives off. Trixy Cat Vintage has a store full of SUPER eclectic pieces- everything from Hepburn-esque tea length dresses to boho feather print maxi dresses- and it's a great store to visit if you don't really subscribe to one type of style (like me!) So if you have a moment, be sure to check them out here. You won't be sorry (especially after you see the cape coats!)
Also, they own a female based skateboarding company too, called Gypsy Boards. Each board is hand crafted and hand painted, so if you know how to skate be sure to check them out!
And to give you an idea of the items they have, here are a few favorite picks from Trixycat- how pretty is that plaid cape coat?
