Outfit: Rose Colored

One rainy day I'd like to shoot a beautiful homage to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. But I'm usually over-optimistic about rainy day pictures; I envision scenes from my favorite films (like Singing in the Rain) and think everything will be oh-so-charming with an umbrella on to. And then I am awakened to the true reality of rainy, wintry days--the bitter wind that whips straight through you and sends your hair into tangles. The cold rain that falls at an angle so no matter how you hold your umbrella it will find a way to reach your skin. Certainly I could try to dress better for the weather (although I am wearing tights & a few layers) in boots for splashing in puddles and thicker coats and scarves. But this outfit suits the necessary activities and quick march between the front door and car door; it only falls apart in the longer outdoor session of photo-taking.
