Spring Trend: Colorful Rain Jacket

So, I know it’s only the second day in March, but I am firmly focused on the idea that Spring is coming. I know it’s hard to feel that way while most of the country got snow dumped on us this past week, but I am READY for Spring. The only downside of Springtime is the rain.

Disclaimer: I love rain. I ADORE rain. I like to curl up with a book and a cup of tea when it is pouring down. I love to bake when it’s raining (stupid because it messes with the humidity in the food, but nonetheless… I bake). I love the Pacific Northwest because if the near constant rainfall and London is my happy place. So I write this post from a perspective of someone who thinks “YES! It’s RAINING!!” When I hear it on my roof. Despite my unhealthy love of rain, it will ruin an outfit. So here I am.

Rain will put a damper (haha, see what I did there?) on even the cutest of outfits. What you need is a chic and colorful cover to both brighten up your day and protect your cute ensemble! I have rounded up some of my absolute favorites below.

Ok, so it’s not colorful, but it is cute! I’m still on the hunt for a kelly green rain coat. I’ll let you know if I find one!

I hope you found one you love! Good luck in the rain my friends! Go forth and be dry and cute!

Guy Friday: Sunglasses


We meet again gentlemen! So, I've been thinking like I do, about small steps that you can take to slowly start upgrading your style game. We've discussed work wear, coats, watches, etc- and it occurred to me that EVERYONE needs sunglasses. That actually tends to be one of the main areas that guys will splurge on, regardless of their otherwise lack of style. Correction. There are three types of guys. One: the ones that will spend a large amount on sunglasses. Two: the guys that lose/break … [Continue reading...]

Outfit of the Day: Cobalt Pencil Dress


It's no secret that I love the color blue. It's the color of the ocean, a prominent color in my favorite college team (Rock Chalk) and in general it looks pretty fun next to my red hair. This dress is a new favorite. It comes in many different colors, but I thought blue would be the most flattering to my own coloring. I love the silhouette of this dress and the back zipper allows it to be form fitting to the knee or you can un-zip it for a bit of a slit if you so choose. This is the … [Continue reading...]
