Rainy Day | Striped Dress + Red Trench

Happy Icy Monday! Boy, was yesterday fun with all the icy sleety rainy type of day. It wasn’t the best of weather out there, but it did give me a reason to bust out a rainy day outfit for you all. In my case, it was a rainy turned sleety type of day.

I’m one to tell you that I’m horrible when it comes to umbrellas–either I’m out without one when it rains, or that I buy the cheapy ones that flips inside out when it gets too windy. You don’t know how many umbrellas I had to replace because of the last reason alone. This time I decided to invest (and I use that term loosely) in a better umbrella that will actually hold its own under strong precipitations. I’m happy to say that this umbrella below did the trick and absolutely love the contrast colors of lime green and black.

Also I’ve been looking for another red trench coat to replace the one here , because last year I got acrylic paint all over it during a slight mishap in one of my painting classes. I just love this pretty candy red color and didn’t think that I would be able to find another until two weekends ago. I stopped by an outlet store to return something and decided to pop into Banana Republic to look around. Then my eyes glanced on this trench coat that was just perfect! The best part was that it fits so much better on me than the last one. I couldn’t find it online, however, so if you have an outlet store near you, be sure to check it out if you’re looking for this similar color. They also come in black and khaki as well.
