I seriously under-packed for New York City last weekend—and I don't mean I didn't bring enough clothes (technically, I brought too many), it's that I didn't bring the right kind of clothes. I wasn't expecting 30-degree plus windchill temperatures for most of the days I was there. Spring, where are you?!

I ended up throwing on all kinds of layers, including my favorite camel coat over this awesome, unique hoodie. The stripes plus the slits plus the statement sleeves take this standard basic to so many new levels.

My leather Vans were always my go-to rainy day shoes until I got a pair of solid rain boots, but I've always been on the hunt for a solid rain coat to go with. Swedish brand Stutterheim came to my rescue with the Mosebacke coat in charcoal, which has an A-line silhouette rather than their more streamlined unisex style, the Stockholm. Even though it's a utilitarian style, I think the A-line is a little too feminine for me, and a little too bulky due to the extra fabric. The Stockholm in green may be next on my wish list. You can never have too many raincoats living in Seattle!
