I’ve been enjoying the cooler weather of late. As much as I love the sunny and mild climate of our city of the Queen of Angels, I miss the opportunity to layer.
When I moved to LA from the Bay Area, I had to completely modify my wardrobe and style of dressing. I had become accustomed to leaving the house with at least three layers. It went a little like this: light tank top, button up business shirt, leather jacket, scarf (always a scarf). The leather jacket, scarf and business shirt would inevitable come off at lunch when the sun burned off the fog, only to return on the evening commute.
However here in LA, there is really no reason to layer. It’s just sunny gorgeous weather. Imagine my awkwardness leaving the house wearing only a t-shirt and taking no jacket. I felt naked and exposed.
So the last few days of cool have given me the opportunity to bring out my favorite layering items. Black sweaters over white wife beaters, worn-out zip hoodies, broken-in leather jackets, I’m even eyeing my scarf collection and looking forward to the rain.
