Being a Blogger in Eugene, Oregon

Being a blogger in Eugene, Oregon is NOT ideal. The summers are very beautiful, but my goodness it is SO cloudy and rainy and foggy during the fall/winter. Which makes picture taking VERY hard. On top of that, I'm at my office working full time, so I always miss the sun if it DOES decide to peek out (I find myself staring outside when the sun shines through the clouds... haha). So I'm sorry my photo location has been the same for the past while. I come home for lunch and take photos sometimes, so I don't have time to venture out very far from our apartment complex ;)

I'm especially excited about today's post because it truly caters to the environment around me-- A rain jacket and wellies combo! This bright and happy green rain jacket + rain boots from Joules make a perfect outfit for the Oregon weather. It seriously rains out of nowhere here (and often!) so it's important to be prepared :-) I love the striped lining on the inside.

I decided to wear the bright green jacket with this delicately beautiful sweater from Gypsy Threads. Gypsy Threads is temporarily closing their online shop, so EVERYTHING is on sale, 40-75% off! But don't hesitate, things are going FAST, so take advantage while you can! Scoot yourselves over to their site and find something for you to add to your closet.

Love your outfit! I have the same issues when it comes to taking photos - it's always dark when I get home, and my apartment doesn't have the best lighting and set-up for taking photos. I'm so ready for spring!

I love the sweater! The frills at the bottom are so flirty and girly without looking out of place in a casual outfit.
