What I Wore :: July Showers Make Peplum Flowers

Something about the rain makes me not want to get dressed. I go so far beyond the "not wanting to get out of bed phase" I can't even bother myself to put on a skirt. Rain boots helped the situation a little, but unless it's an all day downpour, I find them to be a little over the top.

 I've also found that biting the bullet and getting OVER dressed on a day of rain can really lift your spirits. Resist the temptation to go to work in a baseball cap and leggings, and go ahead and put on something colorful or fun. I opted for this floral peplum and a colored skirt to lift my spirits on this particularly ominous day. I also find as a short girl opting for skirts on rainy days rather than pants keeps my hem from soaking all the way up to my knees.


Just be wary of wearing suede shoes. You wouldn't want to get them caught in a puddle. Oh, PS, you may see up there that my silver classic cinema bracelet from JewelMint arrived! While it's not as silver as I thought it would be, it's still a great stacking piece and one you're likely to see a lot!
