rain on my parade

one thing i learned from last year's wet, washed-out summer (it felt more like typhoon season at times) is that you shouldn't let the rain cramp your style.



one caveat: you have to spare your pretty footwear from dirty puddles.



i trust the weatherproofing of this jacket so much that i just toss my blackberry and iPod in its pockets and run out the door, umbrella be damned.

Outfit Details


  1. I've loved that top since your stylediary days (I keep saying stuff like this - how creepy of me!). And you're right about last summer - it was insanity.

  2. Love this! :)


  3. Lovely look! I love the colour combination! :)

  4. I like the look very much! Specially the lace top!
    Hunters! Aaah! I have one and they are pink! everytime it rains I wear them! I should buy more colours i guess...


  5. that last shot is so adorable. reminds me of little kids in slickers on the playground. :)
    i need a good raincoat...one that will cover my whole head. which is quite a bit to ask!

  6. I love how you show perfect layering. Such great layers, so many options. Thanks for a great post.

  7. very sweet look. this inspires me a bit - I have a wedding coming up mid-april that I need to dress for, it's a spring/garden/day (but in a good way) theme an I play a small part so I don't want to stick out as a downer in my usual all black. so here's a READER REQUEST for more inspiration :)

  8. Wow, that top looks very nice... ...although I don't remember it from the Style Diary days :-D

    It would probably very easy to DIY from some vintage crocheted lace... ...hmmm...

  9. Oh my god, I love it!!! I like how you did the post too, showing it with the different layers. That top is beautiful.

  10. that lace top is so lovely! quite a change from what you're usually wearing here but it works so nicely.

  11. OMGGG, I LOVE LOVE your outfit.
