Everybody, Everywear: I Can't Stand the Rain...

It was rather rainy in my area today. It wasn't the worst of the worst but it was bad enough for me to wanna throw my alarm clock out the window when it went off at 6AM.  You know...the kind of weather that makes you want to grab your man...and your favorite blankie...jump in bed and watch Netflix all day long. Those days when you only want to listen to smooth melodies on the radio and say to hell with chores and errands because they can get taken care of when the weather gets better.

And as just as my luck has it, I was running around ALL DAY LONG in the nastiness. FML!!

Good thing I wore these babies:

Yellow Rainboots
Ahhhhh....I love these!! I got them on clearance at GAP several years ago and I still get so many compliments on them when I wear them. Today I received the best one yet while standing in line for gas:

"I looovvveee your WELLIES"!

 I had the slightest idea what the hell 'wellies' were until the cute little lady informed me that this is what people in Scotland call rain boots. Ya learn something new everyday, huh!?
You think it's the bright yellow color that attracts so much attention?


Oh and speaking of yellow, Everybody Everywear has challenged all of the fashionistas in the blogosphere to show how they rock their yellow this month sooooooo....this is my version:

Boots-GAP/Tank-OldNavy/Shorts-DIY (Thrifted)

Cardigan-Aeropostale
My favorite part of this 'rainy day' outfit has to be this thrifted belt:

Belt-Thrifted

It's sooooo fun....


Now it's your turn....what do you like to do on rainy days? Would you rather stay in and do nothing or would you rather throw your rainboots on and splash around in the wetness?

Sidenote: Check out how Everybody, Everywear else is rocking their yellow today.

  5. I think it's kind of cozy to be sitting in restaurants or shopping inside a favorite store when the rain's coming down outside.  I love your rain boots.  I bought some for the first time this year., a pair or black motorcycle looking rain boots and a crazy floral pair.  It makes it easier to be out and about, doesn't it?  Debbie  http://thriftygirlvintage.com
