Ain't No Sunshine

Whad'ya know? Bill Withers strikes again (truthfully I hadn't even heard of the guy before I wrote Monday's post) singing "Ain't No Sunshine". He wrote and sang the hit in 1971 and quite frankly we Seattleites feel like there hasn't been sunshine since then! What Mr. Withers didn't tell us in his song is that when there ain't no sunshine you've got to layer!
This "Prairie Underground Rain
Cloak" will certainly add sunshine
 to an otherwise rainy day

That's right folks, when in doubt layer some more. It adds interest and warmth especially when there ain't no sunshine. And it's probably time to go ahead and invest in an attractive rain resistant jacket of some kind. A non-logoed variety is preferable. It can be a long search but when you find one you love it will add a little sunshine to an otherwise dreary Seattle day.

So go ahead layer with a t-shirt, then a long sleeve shirt or sweater, then a scarf, then that cute new coat you're going to get. You never know when the sun will come out- carry a big bag so you can take off a layer and throw it in there. It's really Seattleites who are prepared not boy scouts! I imagine Seattle boy scouts are REALLY prepared! Go forth with layers and preparation and You'll Love What You Wear!
