Rain Can’t Stop My Parade

I know most people hate rainy days and I do too. Waking up in the morning when it is raining makes it a lot harder to get motivated to dress up. But since I am not a sweatpants, t-shirt kinda girl, I went for another easy casual look. I threw on my favorite pair of Paige Jeans. The zippers add a great detail and give the  jeans a bit of a different and edgier look from your average pair. I threw on my cropped thermal shirt from free people because on days like this you want to be comfy, but not too hot. I also added my Hermes belt to pull together the outfit. Lastly I grabbed my Barbour rain coat as I was walking out the door. This jacket speaks for itself and really makes an outfit on its own. I wore my black rain boots with a hot pink monogram to add a little bit of color and fun. Hair is always difficult to maintain in bad weather, so I threw it up into a high pony tail. It takes a short amount of time and also looks great without putting in too much effort just to have it ruined later on! When you dress up it makes you feel better, so don’t let rainy days get you down! Try putting on a simple outfit, it will make all the difference!DSC_0594DSC_0597DSC_0588DSC_0589DSC_0610DSC_0583DSC_0613DSC_0606

Winter is Coming……Back!

 

This winter’s transition to spring has been an extremely unpredictable one. In order to compensate, it is the perfect opportunity to pump the brakes on that spring wardrobe we are all dying to pull out and go to some warm, but colorful transitional pieces like this darling dress highlighted in today’s post. This is a long sleeved mini, which happens to be a favorite look of mine in any season! The light blue and cream color combination screams, “welcome, spring”, yet allows you warmth and comfort in this non- spring weather we are still encountering here in the North East. Be practical, but pretty. This darling dress was one I picked up in a small hotel boutique in upstate NY. It doesn’t have to be a big name or have big price tag to make a big statement. Finds like this are gems. Stay warm and get your closet ready, as if it hasn’t been for a month!! Spring weather WILL come! Until then, improvise xoB
