Well it’s still a sweltering nearly 80 degrees here in Los Angeles. So while everyone in my Instagram feed continues to talk about rain and frost and pumpkin spice xyz, hot cocoa and “sweater weather” – this beanie is my only hope for even pretending it’s fall here. It’s great for those of us that want to dress for fall but we don’t have the fall weather. I will continue to pair it with dresses and pray for rain, or fog or even a breeze. As a California native, I have never truly experienced seasons the way many of you have. With row after row of golden trees, weeks of rain and then snow. But growing up in Northern Cailfornia at least we had fog, and frost and it got pretty darn cold. This last year for us here in Southern California has seen one too many record temperature highs and we are in the worst drought in our history. Don’t get me wrong, 70% of the time, I love our weather, but right now I’m ready to start feeling like the holidays are right around the corner, not summer break. So drink a cocoa in my honor and pray for rain, when it comes, I’ll be ready in my Protector Lover Mother beanie.
