we hold it down

No idea why I'm just now posting this outfit because I've been wearing it kind of compulsively for a few months now. Green is a really underrated color! In the right shades it can feel every bit as spooky as wearing black, but with the added feeling of elves and haunted forests. Plus it looks good with dark reds and whites and deep blues.

One thing I love about Chicago is the wind. Sometimes it is a gentle breeze, most of the time it is a gust that battles umbrellas and knock you off your feet. Whenever I travel to some other place I always immediately notice the lack of wind - eerie stillness, the missing subtle pressure on my skin, the inactivity of my clothes. Living here has totally made me fall in love with clothes that react to the wind. Things like long flowing garments and hazy prints just take on a more special character when being blown around!

I have to be honest, I can't even tell that there is any green in the clothes, they look like more of a dark green tinted blue to me. Either way, it's nice.
