Bring it on, Rain

Burberry Stud Rainboots

Wellingtons are not a pinnacle of style, but they are a necessary element of my footwear in Chicago. Now that weather is warming up a bit I’m having to think about the next season to come: Spring! Oh how I cannot wait for rain instead of snow.

Jeffrey Campbell "Vee" Rain Boots

An interesting take on the classic rain boot by Jeffrey Campbell. I envision wearing these with a pair of skinny jeans and a big warm comfy sweater. Casual Chic!

Burberry Studded Rain Boots

These Burberry wellies are just too sweet; I’d love to wear these beauties with a classic nude rain coat!

Vivienne Westwood Booties

Am I totally off my rocker or are these wonderfully unique? Vivienne Westwood created these lovely military style booties, which might I add, are recycled and vegan friendly. They look like doll shoes, I’d pair them with tights and a funky dress.

Jeffrey Campbell Marsha Rain Boots

These are a girl’s dream come true! They are simple, stylish, and will keep your feet dry. Most importantly, they don’t look like rain boots at all! Thanks Jeffrey Campbell!

Last but not least, my rain boots. I also like these because they are quite deceptive, you have to take two looks to see that they are wellies!

These boots were made for Jaywalking

Hello everyone, I have, like all of you, been busy with work and life. Thought I would give a quick update on one of my recent purchases. I found these boots at a little store near my house called United. I got them on sale and saved almost $100 bucks. Here is the boot brand’s website:  J SHOES. So far they boots have been absolutely vital to my winter survival. They are super tough looking boots but the delicate laces adds a touch of femininity. I can’t wait to find all the ways I can wear them this winter!

La Vida

I moved a couple weeks ago and it feels great to be a little more settled in. Although having absolutely no furniture, with exception of a TV and a bed, is driving me insane! Now here comes the daunting and thrilling task of starting completely from scratch and decorating our amazing apartment!

Inspiration…

It is so obvious that I love the color white. I’m addicted to high contrast, natural wood, and sleek metal. I’m a basket case of interior design. This should be interesting…

Shop in your closet

I’m in the process of moving (in fact, I’m taking a break before we drive the van to our new apartment) and I am of course thinking about how I hate “stuff”. I found an excellent article on how to “shop in your closet” as a method of weeding out your unwanted clothing.

Shop in Your Closet By Amanda Hinnant

Next time you’re putting away laundry or dry cleaning, grab an armful of clothes that you haven’t worn since you can’t remember when and try them on in front of a full-length mirror, suggests Jeanine Baron, founder of Streamliners Inc., an organizing company in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. Put the ones that you would want to buy again back into circulation; donate the rest.

Toss-It Tips

  • “The keepers must fit, be in style, and not need major alterations or repairs,” says Baron.
  • Don’t let the mere fact that you paid a lot guilt you into keeping something. Your closet is prime real estate.

Why It Works

  • You have to deal with only a few items of clothing at a time―not your whole closet.
  • If your weight has fluctuated over the years, this method lets you pinpoint what fits now and bag memories of your body-size history.
  • You might enjoy it, especially if you unearth a long-buried treasure.

Yesterday I picked up a sweater I haven’t worn in a while and tried it on. It still looked cute, maybe one size smaller than I would want, but I decided to hang it back up and in hopes that I’d wear it this fall. Well, after reading that article I decided that if I saw it in a store, I would definitely not buy it. Therefor I am adding it to my donate pile. Yay for liberation!
