Guess who took outfit pictures in the rain? Yeah, that'd be me. I headed out in the fog to take some pictures at the cemetery because I thought that would look super neat. I get there and there is a guy mowing grass. Fine, no big deal, I'll head to the back of the cemetery. As soon as I get back there it starts to sprinkle. I hurry and pose, continually checking over my shoulder to see how close the man on the tractor was getting. Five minutes or so pass and it starts to sprinkle a little harder and he's definitely getting closer. Too close for comfort in my opinion but I'm determined to photograph this outfit because I feel darn cute. A few more minutes pass and I've got all my detail shots taken when it starts to pour. I dashed back to my car all bummed out because I normally spend a lot more time taking outfit pictures and I reeeeally loved this outfit ...so much so that I ended up wearing it a few more times later that week. To my surprise, when I looked through the pictures that evening there ended up being quite a few I liked and well as the unsurprisingly completely out of focus photos that inevitably happen when you're rushing around like a huge creepy creep taking pictures of yourself in public.

Anyway, this jacket. I. am. in. love. I haven't even touched any of my other jackets since getting it. It's perfect. I received it a few weeks back from HauteLook.
