Anyone else been dealing with a lot of this rain? I drove to Atlanta on Saturday morning hoping that I’d escape this weather in SC…
My thought: If I head to Atlanta, the clouds will certainly open up and the sun will shine. For me. (Hey–my husbands a priest…he’s got a direct-line to the man upstairs, right? WRONG.) I got to Atlanta, and it was more of the same. But luckily, it was worth the ride to send off one of my best friends Whitney, in style. She’s moving to Colorado this week and while I’m super happy for her, and super sad that I’m not going to see her whenever I’m in town. Moving on…
Back to the rainy weather though. Once I left NYC, I hardly ever wore my rain boots anymore. Since I have a car, you’re not forced to be out in the elements so to speak. You don’t have to walk to the train or whatever, so rain boots really aren’t a necessity in the south. But since it rained all weekend, and since I have a really cute pair of Kate Spade rain boots, I wore them all weekend. Sunday I kept trying to get David to go places with me so I could wear my rain boots. In the rain. We went to lunch, then out for coffee, and I tried to get him to go other places, but instead, we went home and watched basketball. At which point I finally removed the boots. (Until I walked the dog later…don’t worry y’all, I got as much wear as I could this weekend).
Here’s my inspiration for this rainy weekend.
Man, I wish I had that umbrella. As wallpaper. In my bathroom. Like in the Royal Tenenbaums.
Whatcha think? Good? Bad? I’m not a huge fan (at all) of leggings as pants unless you’re in the following three categories.
1. WORKING OUT
2. WEARING SOMETHING LONG ENOUGH TO COVER YOUR BUM
3. UNLESS YOU’RE A BABY/TODDLER/KID.
But if they’re super skinny jeans or if they’re made of a material that is not cotton, then they’re okay–like these faux leather ones (in my opinion). Thoughts on leggings as pants? Let me know in the comments.
Happy Monday, y’all! Glad to be back!
