Dwindling Jacket Weather

Fashion Over Reason, graffiti wall, Brooklyn, NYC, transitional weather, vintage leather trench coat

As we get closer and closer to reaching consistent high temps, the kind where nothing but jeans and a t-shirt are necessary, we inevitably suffer through high highs and low lows. The days where those sun rays caress your face, begging you to take your lunch from your desk to the park bench, make us weak in the knees, as giddy as a kid on the eve of their birthday. They remind us that it is indeed good to be alive and that things are actually going to be okay.

Unfortunately, the weeks sandwiched between mid-March and early May play with our feelings. A lot. Almost more than bad boy Jake from high school math class. This is a period that is punctuated with days so gloomy and unnecessarily chilly, they make us want to crawl back into hibernation without giving things a second thought. And if you're north of the border, well, let's just say they have it way worse.

In the end, I've always believed that suffering going through these seasonally characteristic peaks and valleys makes us fall in love with summer that much more. They make us truly appreciate those beautiful, warm evenings. That precious window of time when the trees grow buds and those buds start to bloom. That first time you walk the streets in open-toe shoes and bare legs. Those are the things that make those summers months the most magical ones of the year. They make summer Fridays something to live for.

In the meantime, something as banal as an open coat and going sans chapeau can be so special. Life-altering, even.
