Wishful Thinking

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 136 0

Dress: BCBG. Shirt: H&M. Boots: Hunter ‘Andora’. Hat: H&M. Ring: Stella & Dot. Handbag: Chanel. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

If you read yesterday’s post, you would know that I wrote about how excited I was to get home after work to an extra hour of sunlight.  Well, it was just wishful thinking because it rained from the moment we woke up to the moment we went to bed.  These photos of what I wore yesterday were taken in the only tiny little covered crevice around my condo building.  The only bonus was that the temperature was really mild, so I guess that made up for the rain.  Today is day 2 of hoping for some sunny skies and decent light to take photos tonight!

    I hate the rain, but it does make it a little better to wear my Hunter boots. Also, I am super excited about daylight savings time too. I love coming home from work and it isn’t pitch black.

    • Jenny
      March 12, 2013

      Ha ha ha, yes, you are so right, the only good part about the rain is that we can wear our cute boots and use fun umbrellas! 🙂 Thank you so much Nikki!

    Love the beige/black combo!! I never lean towards this color combo, but I should. I always love it on other people! 🙂

    • Jenny
      March 12, 2013

      Thanks Annik! I think this might actually be my first time wearing this colour combination. I never mix blacks and browns because I just feel like it never looks right on me. However, I didn’t hesitate with this outfit, so I guess it maybe just took me a while to become confident with it. 🙂
