Rainy Day Outfits

I don't know what the weather is like where you are dear readers, but out here it's miserable. The rain will not let up. I'm assuming that I won't see the sun again until June at this point. However, all is not lost. The rain can be comforting clacking against a cold, tin roof. The sound is like home when you're in front of a fire, hot chocolate in hand. But what to do about those stormy days when you can't drag yourself out of bed, but know you need to? A rainy day outfit is key.

When it rains as much as it does here, you need outerwear that protects you from the elements, but that doesn't mean you can't look cute. I've been jumping around trying to avoid puddles because i was not prepared. Leaking rain boots are nobody's friend, therefore I've compiled a sort of wish list of items that I'd like for my next rainy day outing.

Lessons in Classics Coat
from ModCloth

Raindrops Keep Falling Umbrella
from ModCloth
Terrier Firma Rain Boots
from ModCloth

These items may all seem disparate; the patterns may clash a little, but they will all keep you dry, warm and happy. I love the cheeriness of the built-in scarf on the coat and the fact that the boots aren't totally black. A solid coloured rain boot would be a nice option as well, but please don't go with the yellow. I personally find the dogs on the print adorable.

All of these items are little out of my price range. For now I'll stick with the leaking rain boots and faux leather coat, but if anybody comes into some money...
