Rain, Rain Go Away!

Hi Friends! I apologize for not posting yesterday. I have been dealing with a painful eye infection the last few days. Staring at the computer seemed to make it worse so I decided to take a break yesterday.

Thanks to Hurricane Isaac, it's been raining like crazy here. The outer rain bands stretched all the way out to North Georgia and as a result, it's been raining non stop. Because I find inspiration in all sorts of places, including the weather, I thought I would capitalize and bring you a post on Rainwear. Random but practical, right?!? Here are some stormy weather essentials that are cute and practical for each occasion.












I love the fun red raincoat...definitely a bright spot on a rainy day. And I love that bubble umbrella. I've always wanted one of those! The trench raincoat is perfect for scooting across town for that business meeting. This trench also features a hood, which is essential for me. Who wants to arrive looking like a wet rat? Not this girl! I paired it with a fun umbrella for a little bit of "sunshine" for this grey outfit. I'm also crushing on the wedge Hunter rain boots above. Professional yet practical. I can't stand for my feet to get wet when I'm out and about.
I've enjoyed my casual rain boots immensely but these are perfect for work.
If this rain keeps up, I might have to treat myself to these!

So what do you think? Do you invest in rainwear? Is it worth it? 


My thoughts and prayers go out to those in Isaac's path. Hopefully the destruction won't be severe.
I will gladly take our rainy conditions, any day, all day.

Here's wishing you a happy, and dry Wednesday! We are one step closer to the weekend, my friends.
Cheers to that! :)

  2. Love these! I love my bubble umbrella, with the wind here in Chicago, it's the only thing that won't turn inside out. With yellow rain boots to add some fun.
    Sorry to hear about your eye infection! I hope you start feeling better soon.

  4. I would love to buy some chic rainboots like those black ones...but I'm in AZ and it hardly rains here. :( Actually, I dont even think I own an umbrella. ha

  5. Love the polka dot raincoat and boots! I've definitely got to invest this year because last year it rained a ton in the fall--walking 2 crazy children into preschool in the rain requires appropriate gear:) Love your pics.

  6. Love, love, love both! I was just thinking yesterday...as I was driving into work during the nasty rainy day (when I just wanted to be home sleeping) and I was thinking how I needed BOTH a chic rain jacket and a fun (perhaps monogrammed?!) raincoat.

    Here's to hoping these gloomy days pass soon! AND I hope your eye feels much better soon!
