9 Spring Jackets, Perfect for Rain, Wind, or Shine

I really feel like we should be talking about summer. Writing about shorts, and flip-flops, and sunscreen. But instead, the weather in Denver has been breaking my heart. Rain, rain, and more rain (with the occasional sleet and snow thrown in) is our forecast for the next week or so. Ugh.
