faux summer

08-04-1008-04-10
parka from a korean boutique, rachel comey romper via aritzia, drugstore tights, hansel from basel socks, vintage oxfords

My hands still smell from all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ and I'm sitting at home trying to warm up after being in the freezing fog earlier this night. This is by far the worst Bay Area summer I've experienced and even with this new romper the only way to wear it today was with tights and this same ol' parka (for anyone who has asked me about it, I have no idea where to find one exactly like it since it was the only one when I went). Can you even tell it's strapless? What a waste. At the first sign of 80 degree weather I will be wearing nothing but this romper and a pair of sandals, hmph. It's still available online here but it's pretty pricey at the moment, maybe the discount will increase soon.

In response to a couple questions: the orange lipstick is MAC Morange, the Kanken backpack is the Classic Green one, and the song in my latest video is from the Link's Awakening soundtrack. I was waiting for someone to catch that last one, lol.

PSSSSSSSSSSSS: no eyes until I get my haircut in LA this weekend. I can't see anything.

ohhhhhh how you understand the perils of living in this non-summer-pretending to be winter-bay area weather (shakes fist in the air).

btw, you look totally adorable<3.

You are too gorgeous! I love that romper, shame we can't see it in all it's cuteness - I still love it this way, though!

Fashion Intel said...

You have the BEST parkas. Also, you're so right about the weather up there. Last time we were in town I think it was 58. It hasn't been too hot in L.A. either.

Kacey said...

The romper is adorable, and I like it a lot styled for the colder weather - though it must be really frustrating to have summer clothes and not be able to wear them as you thought you would.

Amanda B said...

Annabel, that romper is amazing!! This summer really has been shitty. I was just complaining yesterday at work about it. And I was born here!! You'd think I'd be used to this bullshit. Ugh, I too had a nice collection of rompers for this summer.

Oh, and if I'd seen the video, I totally would've caught the Links Awakening song : D

this is the most perfect romper. i would trade you my horrible hot and muggy weather for your milder climate any day!

Wesley said...

Where do you find all you can eat Korean BBQ in the bay? I see them all over LA but can never find them when I'm home in the bay!

Velvet said...

I love your outfit! The romper is very cute.

Monique said...

I have MAC Morange lipstick too! I got a black once and went to the MAC counter because I had an interview at the most purple stage of my shiner. They made me buy Morange because the orange counteracted the blues/purples!... so if you ever walk into a wall/someone's fist... you know what to use (then concealer on top)

hahah I love your blog btw. You are such a sweetie & I share your obsession with food. Deeeelish.

cute romper. And parka is really amazing, i can understand the interest of blogers. and the weather is crazy this year, it ruined half of my vacation and now I am freezing at home, and it should be at least 87-90 degrees. but its not :(

Karoline said...

Happy weekend!

Monique said...

That romper is to die for...Fabulous. And yes I could tell immediately that it was strapless.
