Rainy Day Outfits

This morning as we walked out of our building, there was smell of rain in the air! And the asphalt was still wet!

The smell of rain is probably one of my top favorites! And it inspired me to write this post!

Even though it’s warm and sunny in Minneapolis today and as one of my friends said “The 50 degree weather got me all excited about fall … and now it’s 80 again. Darned injuns. We don’t need a second summer”, I have decided to blog about perfect fall/rainy day outfits.

1. Boots with Skinny Jeans

I am really loving the blue jeans/brown boots combo! It’s not tacky, it’s classic! And I am all for leather boots for rainy days instead of rain boots! There are so many leather protectants out there, you shouldn’t even be afraid to ruin your boots! And remember – suede is perfect for dry and warm days!

2. Poncho Sweaters

They come in many colors and variations, with collars, pockets, and sometimes, even hoods! The first one is actually from Target, and is only about $25. I am not a huge fan of the one Jessica Simpson is wearing, but tastes differ! The last one is my favorite, I am absolutely loving the front pockets and the ribbed hem! And I couldn’t resist putting in this Missoni for Target picture in here for good measure, even though this poncho is probably only available on eBay for three times it’s original price!

3. Maxi (or any kind of dresses) with Jackets

I am absolutely in love with this trend, and even though most of my dresses aren’t maxi. I love the idea of transforming a summer outfit into a fall one! Don’t have a maxi dress or a skirt? Don’t worry! Just put some tights with your dress, throw on a jacket and a scarf and carry on!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week! I have more exciting posts coming up for you guys this week!

Love,
