out in the rain



i bought this coat in 2006 when i visited my sister in japan and it rained every single day.  it always reminds me of the month i spent with my sister and her husband when i wear it.  



  1. that's a sweet memory - i'd so love to visit japan!
    love your necklace, such a pretty color.

  2. That is a cute coat. Clothes bought while traveling are always extra fun.

  3. I love clothes that evoke a certain memory...great necklace!

  4. I'm envious of those with trenches, because I can't wear them. I get too cold for them in the mornings we have here, and I don't want to spend $150+ on a good trench just so I can wear it for the 3 weeks it's just right for it here in MI. :( Same goes w/ capes.

    Your hair curly is amazingly charming. I love the ringlets! Quite enviable to a straight haired girl like me.

  5. I love your curls! I've lived in Japan so I completely understand how crazy the rainstorms can get there! I bought a trench coat when I was there too :)

  6. I love your hair, so jealous of the curls. And that necklace is too cute. Isn't it funny how sometimes clothes reminds us of a certain period in time? :)

  7. Oh man, I have been dreaming of Brazilian riding boots for years. Yours are just perfect! And where, pray tell, did you get that nifty necklace?

  8. i made the necklace actually! i was having trouble finding a necklace like this that wasn't giant and heavy, so i just got all crafty about it and busted out some pliers. :)

  9. i totally feel you on trenches. michigan has basically no good trench weather!

  10. Yay for DIY necklaces! Hopefully you'll have some more time now that you're done with your thesis :)

  11. Aw I love vacation shopping. Especially since you have the fond memories attached with the item. I have a soft spot for funnel neck jackets and yours is super cute!
