Thank you so much for all the sweet comments from yesterday! I was so surprised and flattered that people took the time to write and tell me to feel better! Wow! What a supportive and great community this blogging world is!
I am feeling so much better today, but unfortunately now my son has it. ARGH! I guess it’s going around- many of my neighbors said they have it too.
So- today’s outfit is not really what I am wearing- I’m actually still in my jammies- but I took a photo over the weekend of a potential outfit, so I thought I’d show it.
I’ve shown this picture on the right before- but it was a while ago, so I thought I could show it again. This was me- a year ago (before my style project!)
I see lots of moms wearing outfits like this- and while they will definitely stay dry- it’s not that stylish.
On the left I have re-created the same idea- jeans (or in this case black skinny jeans), boots, a waterproof jacket. I’ve gotten rid of these horrid pink rain boots and replaced them with my Frye’s. They technically aren’t rainboots- but I sprayed on a treatment so that they are water repellent, and it’s not like I’m going to be standing in the rain.
My jacket isn’t technically a rain jacket either- but again- this outfit isn’t for a soccer game- this is for running errands- darting in and out of the car on a wet or gloomy day. Plus, isn’t that what umbrellas are for?
This jacket will keep me warm and dry- and the style is much more current than the bright blue raincoat. A nice snuggly warm turtleneck also helps keep me toasty.
It’s got the ‘rocker chic’ vibe to it, which I’ve discovered is my alter ego! Who knew?
Have a great day and stay healthy! As my mom always says- ‘wash your hands often!’
As usual, it’s Wednesday, so I’ve hooked up with The Pleated Poppy!
*** 11:42 Outfit update! ***
I had to run to the store today to get some children’s Tylonal so I had to take off my jammies and actually get dressed. I decided this Burberry rain jacket would be even better than the motorcycle style jacket I originally showed. This was a gift from my hubby a few years ago. I love it, it is a classic look that will never go out of style.
This Burberry raincoat is a more stylish alternative than the blue rain jacket!
