While some pieces in my closet evoke very specific memories, others just remind me of a general time in my life. This jacket falls into the latter category. It doesn't remind me of any one special occasion though I suppose a special occasion might be a stretch for a gray denim jacket. It's more likely to remind me of a particularly amazing shit show of an evening of drinks with friends. Sadly, it does not though I'm sure it accompanied me on many such adventures. This jacket simply reminds me of Portland, and when I look at it, all I see is: rain, black skinny jeans, an emo haircut, and more rain. As much as I joke, I look back at my years in Portland with fondness so wearing this jacket is comforting in a familiar way. And ever since I bought this skirt, I wanted to wear it with this jacket. With a black v-neck tee, this outfit was begging for my new favorite wedges…and I was more than happy to oblige. The result was a mix of old and new favorites, and those tend to be my favorite outfits.
