Channeling the Season

Given how sunny and spring-like things have been around here lately, it’s difficult not to channel the season (even on the days that are decidedly neither sunny nor spring-like). I found this blazer on mega-sale around the corner and couldn’t resist – it seemed like just the thing for warm-ish days, or to combat the San Francisco fog on less-than-warm days. Let’s hope the fog monster keeps it in check for a bit.

The growing numbers of terry/sweatshirt/jersey options on fashionable shelves is really challenging my self-control when it comes to shopping; I just can’t seem to get enough of the comfortable stuff. I’ve been living in this terry cardigan since I got it and honestly don’t plan on taking it off anytime soon, since it somehow seems to work just as well over PJs as it does out and about. Hopefully it’ll satiate the comfortable addiction, for at least a little while.

While walking down Haight Street and wearing these pants the other day, a dog came running up to me (and Milo, who was accompanying me per usual) to greet us. His owner – who looked as if he’d perhaps come to Haight-Ashbury in the Summer of Love and never left – trailed behind him. “Sorry!” he said. “Timmy really likes purple.” I’d never gotten fashion feedback from a canine before, but there’s a first time for everything, right?

Side note: This is obviously my third post in a row with this Muse anorak – be sure to enter the $150 Muse gift certificate giveaway!

As we enter that sort of transitional season, I’m realizing that San Francisco is basically always in transitional weather – not hot, not cold, nothing too extreme. It’s pretty rare that I need a serious winter coat, but it’s also not always quite warm enough for just a light blazer. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect in-between jacket for quite some time, so I was pretty pumped when Muse offered to send me this anorak , and I honestly haven’t stopped wearing it since it arrived. It seems to go with just about everything I own, so I’m going to do a few posts this week featuring the anorak in several different looks.

Also, good news: Muse has offered to give a $150 gift certificate to one lucky Sea and Swank reader – use the Rafflecopter below to enter, and good luck!

So it’s Valentine’s Day. Apart from the candy – and yes, the candy is awesome – I think this day is kinda lame. I can appreciate the value in telling those you love just how much you appreciate them, but a., I don’t see why we need a Hallmark holiday that tells us to do that once a year; and b., it’s a pretty crappy reminder of loneliness when you’re single. Seems kinda unnecessary.

Anyway, not trying to be a curmudgeon – perhaps it’s just that red is really not my color. Patterson J Kincaid Shirtdress – San Francisco Style BloggerPatterson J Kincaid Shirtdress – San Francisco Style Blogger

Is there such thing as too much mint? I’m gonna go ahead and say no. That said, I have a tendency to find something I like and run with it (til it runs out), so I’ll let you know when I find the limit. Limint?
