Rainy Day

Umbrella: Lulu Guiness for Fulton (via The Bay). Rain Poncho: Topshop (similar). Shirt: Joe Fresh. Jeans: H&M. Shoes: J.Crew Rainy Day Ballet Flats. Bracelet: Henri Bendel. Ring: BCBG.

 

I’m not a fan of humid rainy days, nor the big frizzy hair that comes along with them (as seen in these photos), but I will admit that I was hoping for a single rain cloud just so I could use this new adorable umbrella.  The printed bird cage and little birdie are just so cute that it almost makes me hope for more rainy days. . .I said almost.

More print mixing today.  I think I’m starting to get the hang of it, although my Man did rhetorically ask “Dots and stripes. . . does that match?” when he saw me.

Sometimes all it takes is a new accessory added to an outfit of older pieces to make you feel like you’re wearing a brand new look.  Each of the items I’m wearing is at least 3 years old, except for my new J.Crew Edie handbag I picked up in July (already worn in the post Ladies Who Lunch).  I just can’t stop talking about this bag!  I am madly in love with its surprisingly versatile lovely lavender colour, and it’s classic chic shape.  Barring any unfortunate ice cream spills (because I eat ice cream a lot), this purse will be in my collection for many, many years to come.
