Rainy Day Style

Sources: 1 & 2, 3, 4

It's a cold, gray, rainy day here so I thought I'd do a little roundup of some of my favorite rainy day style inspiration! The one from Blair is a classic that I've swooned over for a couple years now, and it goes without saying how obsessed I am with those black & white striped umbrellas. Paired with classic trench coats, they are beyond perfect. 

I hope you're all staying warm & dry! Happy Wednesday!

Out Of My Element

Jacket: c/o She Inside, Dress: Pink Martini (old), Boots: Matisse c/o Composure Vintage, Necklace: H&M, Bracelet: c/o Stella & Dot, Watch: Michael Kors, Sunglasses: c/o Sunglass Warehouse, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff c/o Eluxe

I feel like I stepped pretty far out of my usual classic style with this outfit - it's a little 80s, I'll admit. But I knew I wanted to break out this fun floral bomber and I knew I wanted to show you my rad new studded boots from Composure Vintage and this is just how it came together! 

Yesterday I talked about how nice it is to have fresh items at the end of a season that are still seasonally appropriate, and these boots totally fit into that category, too. If you aren't familiar, Composure Vintage is a fun online shop with a mix of modern & vintage pieces, and the owner Chelsea is an absolute doll. I am in love with these little booties - you all know that black & gold combos are the key to my heart! 

These sunglasses are totally pushing my limits too, in the best possible way. I'm no stranger to mirrored sunnies, but this clubmaster-esque style is very new to me and I wasn't sure I could pull them off. I usually stick to more oversized frames but love how brightly these reflect!

Glitter Kicks


Cardigan: c/o Banana Republic, Tank: Joe Fresh, Jeans: Gap (similar), Shoes: Kate Spade x Keds, Necklace: c/o Blush, Bag: Coach, Bracelets: Kate Spade and Stella & Dot, Watch: Michael Kors

Last Friday it was sunny & warm and I was taking off on a little roadtrip to Portland Maine for the weekend and it just felt like an appropriate time to break out my Kate Spade glitter keds and ripped denim. I found these sneaks online after Christmas, after searching for them forever - they must have been a returned pair, as they were the only pair in stock, and on sale (and sadly, didn't come with the ribbon laces, only the regular ones) and if I'm going to be honest, they're a full size too big - but I didn't care, I felt like they'd be gone forever if I didn't jump on this pair. So I've been waiting & waiting for the weather to be nice enough to finally break them out, and on Friday, it was! 

I'm also pretty smitten with this fun leopard print cardigan. I find at the end of a season everything in your wardrobe feels so tired, but it's not warm enough to break out spring/summer clothes really, so this bright, cozy cardigan was the perfect topper on this day.

I hope you all had fantastic weekends! As I mentioned I went to Portland Maine with my guy as he had a rugby game to play and we made a lovely little weekend out of it. Lots of beer, food, downtown roaming, and a wee bit out of outlet shopping. All in all, an awesome little getaway!
