Actually, it has not. It’s still in the upper 70’s here in DC and no matter how many times I put on a blazer this week, it's not yet time to start burning pumpkin spice candles and overwearing blanket scarves. Though if you're looking for a good one, check out this one from Target!
But this weekend, when I woke up to a crisp 65 degrees, my inner San Franciscan cried tears of joy. 65 degrees is light jacket weather which is one step closer to layering weather. And ladies, layering is.my.jam. When you grew up in a city where the temperatures range from 50-60 degrees depending on what neighborhood you're in, you learn how to layer very effectively. I grew up on the sunny side of town and went to school near the beach is the foggier side of the city so I had to learn the skill of layering early on.
So on Saturday when the weather called for a light jacket and my to-do list included running errands (which always leads to mindlessly shopping at TJ Maxx and Target) I knew it was the perfect time to toss on this new soft drapey parka from Aeropostale. Yea, that Aeropostale that you shopped at way back when in high school. I've partnered with them for almost a year now and their soft drapy tees, like this striped one, have become a staple in the weekend rotation. With reasonable prices and quick ship times, they're worth checking out. As temperatures continue to cool, I foresee this shirt getting a lot of layering wear.
