rain, really?

03-12-1003-12-10
vintage duffel coat, zara dress, thrifted cutout oxfords + bag, american apparel tights

I don't usually do headless shots but my face looked way too annoyed with the damp situation that I was in. Why is it that the one day you want the weather to be nice it ends up being a complete shitshow? Fridays are usually our date days since we both have it off but it just so happened that this week's coincided with crappiest weather of the week. It didn't just rain, it poured! How is that possible when Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday were so sunny and beautiful? Nevertheless, errands had to be attended to and we made the most of it. I'll save the dinner post for later in the week.

I was a total cranky pants that day until I got out of the rain and shoved this ham sandwich (with provolone and sundried tomatoes!) from a local deli down my throat. One of the things BF and I have in common is the degree to which we are affected by a lack of food: our worst (but not very serious) blow ups with each other are usually caused by being extremely hungry. Seriously, one moment I'll be snapping at him for no reason and the next I'll be addressing him with one of our many pet names for each other while downing a cheeseburger and of course, when the time comes, he'll do the same to me. It's hard to explain on the internet but you get the picture.

On another note, I think I will be listing more clothes in my blog shop around 7pm Pacific time. Stay tuned!

ETA: The shop is finally updated with a bunch of dresses! Check them all out here.

It was sunny today in San Francisco though! Finally. Haha. And on friday, expect it to be sunny too.

Dominika said...

i can truly say that i'm in love with this outfit (and your style (and blog) of course ^^!)
i love this coat and your shoes are amazing too!
<3

Annabel said...

i could use an awesome sandwich like that right now. love your food pics!

avalonne said...

I WANT TO EAT THAT SANDWICH!!! And I love your duffle coat please! :)

amy the abattoir said...

That coat is to die for!

And I'm pretty sure anything with sun dried tomatoes is destined to be amazing.

♥Lola said...

I love this coat, so cute :) That sandwich would definitely cheer me up too :)

captainsonicx said...

Lovely outfit!

I'm jealous of the people who actually have nice sunny weather. Over here it's cold and mostly cloudy. Yesterday we had a little bit of sun, but today it's cloudy again. :/

Rain always comes on the worst moments. I remember I was cycling to my home and suddenly there is this huge downpour. D:

Sewon said...

That sandwich looks so tasty! Also, I get so cranky when I'm hungry, too. My friends and I call it "hangry" (so hungry that you get angry).

P.S. Cute oxford shoes!

Sher said...

The food on your blog always look extra tasty, yum!

And I know what you mean, tempers are more likely to fly when your stomach is growling:)

Adore your duffle coat and mustard tights!!

xx

Helena said...

Holy shit, that's a lot of ham. Yum! (p.s. love the yellow tights.)

Indie Mom and the Reluctant Banker said...

The weather may have been shitty but at least your outfit was pretty much perfect.
And that sandwich looks amazing!

Ganymede Girl said...

I get SO irritable when I get hungry too, I get annoyed by every single little thing! Then I eat a cookie or something and it's like flicking a switch from good mood to bad mood, it's ridiculous but I'm glad my boyfriend understands and a lot of the time I'll just say "sorry, I really need to eat something."

OMG - How much ham is in that sandwhich??!!

Kate said...

It's called being hangry, it's my main personality feature!

Love the coat & tights combo. :)

adele said...

Rain has a way of foiling even the best laid plans! The coat and tights and shoes look so good together, perfect primary colours!

E. said...

roooh Love that trench and that sandwich !!!
Wish you a very good day from Paris.
*_*

Mez said...

I get exactly the same way with my b/f!

Love the outfit you look very cute.

Shini said...

Murphy's law is basically ...the law of the world it seems. It's absolutely bright and sunny now and yesterday and the day before while I'm sitting home having to work. Let's see what will happen tomorrow when I can go out. You look great though, can't imagine rain in your beautiful oxfords and tights though eruch :'( poor you

Nadia Kamballa said...

Yeah, I hate it too when rain pours so sudden.. You still look great with the coat, btw..

Where did you get the sandwich from?? It looks so yummy!

Dip-tea said...

your post cracks me up every time, other than when it is serious of course. i totally get what you are saying here. me and my guy we are at each others throats when we are hungry. actually more me than him. but once some good grub makes its way down the esophagus we go coochie-cooing like a pair of (safe) rabbits !!

corksandcaftans said...

Man, I am the same freaking way. It's always on a similar schedule too, so if one of us is heard shyly offering that we're having a blood sugar crash, we pull over immediately for food in anticipation of a someone irritating the life out of the other.

:)

You always make my day when you post, btw. Feel better!

FASHION SNAG said...

musti said...

jajajaj
i love your food pictures!

nice shoes!

Ashley said...

I'm the same way when it comes to being irritated due to a serious lack of food. I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes it makes my boyfriend a little scared, but then he realizes that it's because I need to eat. Then we go get a cheeseburger STAT.

SAUVAGE said...
