Rainy Day Blues

Yuck-o, misty, cloudy day here. The kind of day you might see in a movie about a New England fishing village (like Andre perhaps). The air is heavy and moist, and the smell of salt is permeating the city. My vote is everyone goes back to bed and calls it a day. Forget this whole “work” thing.

I’m wearing one of my newest items from Find today, this Marc Jacobs vest. They were selling it for practically nothing, but I literally paid nothing thanks to my credit from selling some of my stuff. As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m obsessed with large bows and menswear is on trend this season, so for me its the perfect combo.

I am also wearing plaid pants, which I have mixed feelings about. I bought these on sale shortly after graduating college, in need of “work” pants for my job. I never wore them much, feeling a bit like an aging golfer whenever I had them on, but now I’m sort of liking them. They have a menswear feel to them, but are a soft enough print where I don’t feel too preppy.

Vest: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Shirt: Old Navy
Glen plaid trousers: Express
Shoes: L.L.Bean Signature
Cuff: H&M

Stay dry my babies!

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.

    This is adorable!!! Definitely brightens up the gloomy mess of a week we’ve had in New England. If you have to get out of bed and put real clothes on, you may as well look good!
