Vintage jacket, shirt, and boots, Cheap Monday jeans

It's been raining non-stop here lately, so it was a good time to come across it. I put together this outfit inspired by California wintertime rain storms and the irony of wearing a tropical shirt in the thick of them.

Thanks for stopping by - posting should return to normal after my life returns to normal as it slowly slides into 2011.
