Tuesday Tuneday: Dary & Stormy

It’s a gloomy and somewhat brisk Tuesday up here in Boston – one of the first rainy fall days we’ve had.

As much as I love a clear, sunny day, I need my dreary days to not only make me appreciate the picture-perfect ones, but also to get me to slow down and snuggle up. When the weather’s gorgeous, I put an immense amount of pressure on my schedule to get out and soak up as much as I can, whether it’s a cool morning run on the water or an afternoon of apple picking, farmer’s markets and tons of baking; I just can’t let myself relax and let it pass me by.

It’s days like these that get me to rest a little and indulge in more quiet moments, of course accompanied by a hot mug of cinnamon tea, and preferably a cozy blanket. But when you must brave the outdoors, there are some cozy and protective essentials…

grey days

Jack Wills Pheasant Sweater  / Alexander Wang Honeycomb Sweater / Barbour Bedale Jacket / J.Crew pixie pants / Longchamp tote / Timex watch /  Burberry duck handle umbrella / Hair ties / Hunter Boots Pillar Box Red 

Always need a good cozy sweater, an umbrella (just in case), a water-resistant bag, and some handy hair ties for when your hair inevitable loses the battle to the moisture (just me?).

Grey days always put me in a very specific mood. Aside from just general somberness and introspection, I gravitate toward very specific songs/albums that have always created that same feeling for me. Some of them have accompanied me on long, rainy drives - others bring the same sense of warm sadness that I so love about this weather. Either way, they are always the backdrop to my dark days and help me to slow down and soak them up.
