when it rains on your parade, look up

As much as I love the sun, rainy weather is definitely my favorite. Speaking of favorites, ugly sweaters. Yes, I love them and I cannot get enough of them. Take this one, for example. Almost so ugly it's cute.

It wasn't really cool enough for a sweater, but when I pulled this one out of my "fall/winter" clothes box, I immediately had to pull it on. I don't know what it is, but I firmly believe that certain colors are meant for certain seasons. In fall I want to wear mustards, ochres, reds, rusts, jewel tones, and the browns, blacks, navys, and grays. In winter I'm all about the dark colors with the occasional jewel tone piece thrown in, and in the spring all I can think about are pastels with some light grey. Summer is really the only season that I want to wear bright, in your face, bam, '80's-esque color (also, summer is really the only time I like to wear white). This feeling doesn't apply to other people's outfits, however I can't just get my head around it for my wardrobe. I think this has something to do with the way I'm feeling during the different seasons, but I really can't explain it any more than that. In fall and winter I just don't feel like wearing a pastel cat sweater. So, since this piece was stored in the depths of my basement all spring, I though I could wear it once before the rich warm colors of fall completely take over my mind and wardrobe.

I usually like to be very open minded when it comes to my wardrobe (and life in general), so admitting that I have this little "thing" about colors is hard for me. I don't know, I guess I'd just rather wear pieces I feel comfortable in, and these usually happen to be season mimicking colors.

I couldn't pass up these wellies. The whales are just too adorable. I feel so Burt Dow, Deep -Water Man, in them.

Ugly sweaters are so much fun. It's great when people don't themselves so seriously. The little cats are too funny.
