rain rain go away











Wearing a vintage jacket, unknown blouse, H&M skirt, boots from StyleSense, Silks tights, Burberry umbrella.

I woke up on Monday miserable for two reasons: 1) it was Monday and 2)it was raining. Now, I love rain, but usually only during the summer when it provides a nice cool down in between hot days. But rain during the winter is horrible. I hate having to walk to class with my puffy coat, boots, bags AND umbrella. So you can all imagine that at first I didn't even contemplate taking photos, although eventually I succumbed to the idea, and discovered that outfit photos during rainy days turn out quite well.
I absolutely love the colour of this skirt (and the shape). I think orange is one of my favourite colours. One of my first cell phones was orange and when it broke it was incredibly sad to part with it, I'm pretty sure I shed a tear. Anyways, this outfit is my continuation of "if only I was Nancy Drew and solved mysteries".

As soon as I opened this post - Nancy Drew popped in my mind. Good to know it wasn't just me!
I pretty much love everything about this outfit. Including the rain! But you're right, it belongs in the summer. Snow already has domain of the winter.
