Who else woke up to the sound of rain? It’s that time of year here in Los Angeles when the weather gets a tad cooler. A marine layer blankets the city in the morning before the sun breaks through to provide its daily warmth. I really enjoy mornings like this, but finding outerwear that can accommodate the quick change from clouds to sun can sometimes be a challenge. With the help of Uniqlo, I think my problem has been remedied!

This ensemble was made for a cloudy Sunday! No contacts, no filter.
I never wear jeans. Mainly because I can never find a pair that fits both my booty and waistline. I always end up with the “back gap,” which is just not a good look on anyone. I can easily say it’s been two years since I’ve found a pair of jeans that I like. When I ordered these jeans online, I was prepared for them not to fit well but to my surprise they fit like a glove! The material has a bit of a stretch, which helps keep them comfortable but also form fitting. They sit at the perfect height on the hips, and the length is just right for my 5 foot 7 frame. And for under $50? I want 14 pairs.
What really needs to be discussed is this lightweight down jacket. I’m not sure if the word obsession is an accurate enough description of how I feel about this gem of a clothing piece. It’s awesome. It’s collapsible. It’s “Saratoga to So Cal” approved, and I love it. The cardigan style neckline with a contrasting light grey trim makes it look modern and sleek, and stands out from the average puffer jacket. This is the jacket a beachy Californian or Adirondack hiker needs between 8 – 11am, and then again from 8 – 11pm, and the best part is that you really can carry it with you all day. The jacket comes with its own storage bag. Once it was too warm to wear, I simply rolled it up and threw it in my purse. Boom. Stylish simplicity!
