As I’m typing this it is lightly raining outside. After moving to California I still miss rain and of course a good thunderstorm. While this is just barely a shower, it is lovely to listen to the rain and smell the wet pavement and grass coming in through the window. Since this is a rare treat I decided to look into something that reminded me of a rain storm. I started looking for a perfume that could help recreate it. It seemed like a difficult thing to recreate–how to get that smell of clean water, pavement and grass in a bottle? I then found the perfume company, Demeter and found exactly what I was looking for. I had heard of them for a long time but only recently tried out the scent, “thunderstorm.” They have several different options for watery scents but I wanted something more like an actual summer storm. The brand is super affordable but the perfume is not very long lasting. The scent is a perfect recreation of a rain storm. There was the rain, wet grass and soil all in a bottle. I was amazed! It was the answer to my “rain cravings” as it were.
The latest addition to my ever growing cardigan collection has been this one from American Eagle. I’m kind of obsessed with the in-between brownish purple tones. It’s one of those cardigans that you can wrap yourself up in it’s so soft. The cami is also by American Eagle and I love the darker daisy/floral pattern on this one. To complete the look I went with my tried and true chelsea boots. They go with so many things it’s hard not to reach for them for every look!
