Checks & Stripes

Wet, windy, rainy, misty, cloudy, and muddy. NASTY. Welcome to Chicago this past Monday! Said weather meant it was time to break out the wellies. And a hat. To put it nicely, my hair and Mother Nature aren’t really friends. They actually kind of hate each other.

Striped Cardigan: Madewell
Gingham Shirt: J.Crew
Jeans: Paige
Quilted Rainboots: Hunter
Umbrella: J.Crew
Necklace: J.Crew
Hat: Banana Republic (similar)
Watch: Michael Kors (similar)
Bangle: Sequin NYC

Making sure there aren’t cars coming…

*trying* to put up my umbrella…

Playing in the street… Oops!

What are your rainy day go-to’s?!

    Rainy, non-work days call for skinny jeans & my Loeffler Randall rain boots.

    You are adorable, and so is that cardi 🙂 I don’t really have a rainy weather go-to outfit except for a very unstylish raincoat 😉
