Midnight Monsoon

In case you missed my tweet, rainfall was plentiful Friday night/Saturday morning. A couple of friends and I were leaving Stanley’s to catch a cab home when we realized it was DOWN-POURING. I don’t know the last time I saw rain like this. (I think I heard it rained 6 inches in a matter of hours.) I stayed in the bar until we got a cab, but I was SOAKED after the 3 second dash from the building to the curb. It was absolutely miserable. I HATE rain. The cab pulled up to our intersection and the road/curb was flooded so I had to take my shoes off before I got out of the cab. It was disgusting, but I had to save my shoes! 🙂 When I stepped out of the cab, the water was halfway up to my knees. Omg, it was so gross. I had my roommate snap a picture when we got inside. We were all laughing hysterically because we usually take outfit pictures when we get home, but these pictures are a little different than usual!


^^ That is the look of being miserable, but having to laugh at the same time.

I’ll have to wear this outfit again to get some real pictures. This is your sneak peak until then!

      I got them at Lori’s Shoes in Chicago, but you can also find them at Nordstrom. They’re the Sam Edelman “Javi” … very comfy, too!
