Come Winter, Come Snow

Air Code JacketI cannot believe that August 2011 is over! We've already entered September.. and with it comes fall. I miss summer already. The warmth, the blue skies, the light - and the happiness. The thing I dislike the most about this time of year is the cold weather. It means I can't leave the apartment without putting on several layers of clothing, and it's really not for me. I know, I know, I live in the wrong place. And don't bother leaving me comments trying to convince me that winter is a wooonderful time of year. Please. I have Asian blood in my veins, I'm not cut out for winter, let alone the Norse winter.

Now, having to look for a proper winter jacket - for those few times I actually have to go out during winter - is the perfect excuse to go shopping, right? I have a few requirements when shopping for jackets, and it's really not easy to find a light jacket that will also keep me warm on a cold day. I don't wanna look like a tiny bodybuilder, and I prefer to be able to move my arms while wearing it - the fun of having limited arm strength. I did however find a jacket! A leather jacket, which I thought was pretty cool. Since it's really troublesome to try on clothes in the store, and I knew I had to try it on before deciding, I ordered it online. And what do you know! In the size x-small it actually looked pretty good on me.

It's padded with fleece, which makes it really soft and cozy on the inside. Also it looks a lot cooler in real life than in this lousy picture, you'll just have to take my word for it. To make a long story short(er), I love my new winter jacket. I also have my heart set on a pair of shoes, or rather booties, for winter, but I don't have the funds to splurge on shoes right now. Hopefully they're still in stock next month.
