Rainy Mood

by - Thursday, September 08, 2011

There's a few things wrong with this picture:
1) I'm holding an umbrella and the ground's dry. It really did rain earlier!
2) A week's worth of rainy days is nothing to smile about.
3) The umbrella looks awkward. The clasp is broken, so there I am holding both the prongs and the handle so it stays fully open. With three umbrellas to pick from, of course I chose the broken one, lol.

jacket: Esprit trench (similar)
necklace: Ann Taylor winter sparkle (eBay; similar; similar)
top: Ann Taylor cascading ruffle blouse - thanks to Elle (similar; similar)
socks: J.Crew argyle (similar; similar)

  1. I'm so glad you did the socks with boots look - I like it!

  2. I was actually going to ask how you're holding up in NoVa - here in MD (think 14 miles from DC) I can do backstrokes across the road. It's pouring as I type.

    Your outfit is so chic! You look amazing in that skirt and trench - so feminine, classy, and a bit playful :)

  3. I love the powder blue - such an unusual color for a trench coat!

  6. oh i'm totally loving the combination of baby blue and gray. it's such a soft soothing color scheme and perfect for those rainy days. and bring the rain down to TX -- we're having a record drought!

  11. Haha that's so funny! I hate when I have to use our broken umbrella! It makes it tough to stay dry. =)

    I really love that light blue trench! You're so cute!

  12. Oh man it was POURING last weekend and my umbrella looked like yours AND I discovered it had a hole in it LOL! yes I bought a new one :P

    Creative shot with the umbrella hiding your face by the way ;)

    Gah you wear rain boots so well!!!!!

  13. The rain has been insane here! I actually considered taking a similar picture but never got around to it haha. I love the color of your trench

  14. @Anna - Thank you for asking :) Last night was crazzzzzy. Never seen anything like it before. I waited it out at work and didn't get home until late, and by then roads weren't too bad. Thank goodness!

    @kileen - Hehe, send the heat up! I'll gladly trade :)

    @kimchi girl - Speaking of knee high socks, I recently went crazy at F21. Your suggestion of cute socks with cute shoes a la J.Crew has been stuck in my mind. I can't wait to try out that look soon!

    @Tiffany - Lesson learned... now I know to try it out at home before I walk out into the rain ;)

    @Elaine A (TOBeautyReviews) - Lol @ the hole! You buying a new one reminds me that I need to throw the broken one out, not put it back with the other two good ones. D'oh!

  15. Your outfit is stunning!!! I love your boots & that trench. You look fabulous :)

  16. No, a week's worth of rainy days is nothing to smile about, but at least you have fabulous boots to wear out and about :)

    I heard there was some flooding on the east coast last week...hope you guys are escaping all of that unpleasantness!


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
