It’s raining out now and I’m contemplating a run to the market in the horrible downpour we’re having right now. And while I contemplate I’m looking at a few items that would make my rainy day a little less wet, and a lot more fabulous. For example, since I find it almost impossible to find a suitably cute raincoat right about now…
I’m in love with that purple magenta color right now and how fun would the bubble be for our torrential downpours?
You know you would be the belle of the ball toting around this pretty parasol on a rainy day. FUN!
Until I’ve got a little extra money saved, though, I’ll be trodding around in my winter coat and oversized ugly rain boots. But a girl can dream of splashing through puddles in some delectable rain gear, right?
I recently re-enrolled in French classes – it’s been a long time since I’ve studied the language, but it’s a labor of love and I feel the need to refresh my brain a little on the finer points of French conjugation. To wash away my nerves, I decided to don a plucky little outfit and sip some café au lait while perusing my brand new textbook.
Luckily it was sunny and warm; perfect for cute little skirts, still paired with knee-high boots. This outfit seems so fall-like, but since spring in the Emerald City is so much like fall (and winter for that matter), I figured I’d be fine just this once.
I definitely felt a little “Francophone” in my knit beret and striped top. Oh, hello! Do not mind the mess, or little G’s dog bed in the background. As for my outfit, I jazzed it up with my red Fluevog boots, and this crazy beaded granny-necklace. The great part is all the red matched the lining of my blazer.
The color combo felt a little strange when I originally pulled it out, but with a few finishing touches, I think it came together well.
What I wore:
- Striped sweater top: Banana Republic
- Gray tank: J Crew
- Gray skirt: Papaya
- Black knee socks: Sockdreams
- Red embroidered leather boots: Fluevog
- Denim blazer: Thrifted
- Red beaded necklace: Vintage – from Mr.’s Granny
- Blue crochet beret: Bird & Belle (AKA: Made by Me!)
The weather held, and class was great! I was a little nervous, but my nerves were swept under the rug toute de suite. It turns out I’d actually forgotten less than I originally thought!
Unfortunately, the weather was not as kind, and the very next day was rainy and gray. I stashed my little skirt away for the moment – until the sun comes back out and the rain goes away.
