You Can Stand Under My Umbrella

Forever 21 isn't a place where I do a lot of shopping, as much of their clothing seems to be geared for people who are actually under the age of 21 as opposed to people like me who are well over the age of 21! Sometimes, however, you do hit the jackpot with a few wearable items that are cute no matter what your age. Take, for example, this adorable umbrella blouse. You could easily wear it with jeans or dress it up like I have done in this post with a smart skirt for a polished look for work.

Originally, I thought it would be fun to wear this blouse on a rainy day with an umbrella; however, we have literally had about three days of rain this winter in Los Angeles! In fact, it's been an unseasonably dry and hot winter here, so much so that on Friday, when Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicted that there would be six more weeks of winter, the mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, took it upon himself to tweet a picture of palm trees and sunshine and write that, "Six more weeks of winter, Ya, we can live with that." It's no wonder that people look at Angelenos with such contempt! Personally, I actually am wishing for more rain and cooler, cloudy weather but I guess the grass is always greener on the other side!

  1. I love your umbrella blouse, Katie! It's such a fun print and looks great with that skirt for a polished look. Like you said, it'd also look great with jeans, too. Hope you have a great week, Katie! XXX

  2. That umbrella shirt is adorable! I always love your colorful outfits.

  3. I always enjoy looking at your outfits. Always so colorful, it just makes me giddy and happy! This outfit is no exception and how fun are those umbrellas! It is really weird that six more weeks of Winter is predicted though it already feels like it's Spring in my area and Summer in yours. My parents were just in LA this past weekend and they said it was hot! Happy Monday lovely lady.
